In this episode of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back in studio previewing a full slate of week 12 games in the Pac-12 that features two separate ranked-on-ranked matchups, two rivalry games, three teams trying to keep bowl eligibility alive, one Friday night game and no Pac-12 After Dark contests on Saturday night.
The headline matchup is the last game of the day, featuring No. 5 Washington in Corvallis to take on No. 11 Oregon State at 4:30pm on ABC. The other contest featuring two ranked teams is No. 22 Utah on the road taking on No. 17 Arizona in Tucson.
Week 12 gets going Friday night with Colorado taking on Washington State in Pullman and both the Buffs and Cougs need a win to keep their (slim) opportunity to play in the post season alive. Both USC and UCLA have faltered late in the season but something will have to give when the Trojans and the Bruins face off in the Coliseum at 12:30. No. 6 Oregon will head to the desert to take on their former offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham and ASU. The final rivalry game, what they like to call Big Game, features 3-7 Stanford hosting 4-6 Cal at 3:30 on Pac-12 Networks.
The guys also discuss the latest on the Pac-2 lawsuit with Oregon State and Washington State winning a key court battle and reportedly setting up a scheduling agreement with the Mountain West for the next two seasons. Plus the report from BRO that UCLA head coach Chip Kelly will likely be fired after the season.
The guys will preview all of the games and make their picks against the spread.
As usual Ryan and Dave end the podcast answering listener emails and questions from the YouTube chat.
