Podcast of Champions – Utah is heading to the Rose Bowl and Mario Cristobal is OUT at Oregon

This week Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back in studio breaking down Utah’s dominating victory over Oregon in the Pac-12 Championship game, showcasing the great new venue for the conference title at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Ryan was there in person and talks about the much improved atmosphere for the game and discussed what commissioner George Kliavkoff had to say in the pregame press conference. The guys also talk about the makeup game between USC and California plus they go over of the announced bowl games including the Utes going to the Rose Bowl for the first time, taking on the Ohio State Buckeyes.

The biggest news of the week also involved Oregon with head coach Mario Cristobal leaving the West Coast to head back home and take over a struggling Miami Hurricanes football program. Yet another bizarre turn in the coaching carousel, the Ducks had offered a long extension for Cristobal but he eventually turned it down and now Oregon needs to find his replacement. The guys also go over the Pac-12 Post-season Awards with Utah getting the most 1st and 2nd teamers (10) plus the defensive player of the year (Devin Lloyd), defensive freshman of the year (Junior Tafuna) and coach of the year (Kyle Whittingham). The other major awards were USC’s Drake London for offensive player of the year and WSU’s Jayden d e Laura for offensive freshman of the year.

And as always they spend time answering all of the questions the listeners manage to send in, including text messages and voicemails!
