Buck 12aAnother week and a little less chaos in the Pac-12.

It looks like nearly every game will be competitive, unless Arizona gets involved, which makes for a pretty cloudy bowl picture in mid-October.

Here’s my best take on how I think it’s going to happen in December…for now.

2:00 p.m. PT, ESPN, Jan 1, 2022, Rose Bowl, Pasadena, CA

Ducks seem to be the safest bet to win the Pac-12 at the moment, although they looked really scary the wrong way around going in and out of farewell week.

The Ducks have a relaxed schedule from here, and they know how to win the conference, so now I’m trusting them to get back to Pasadena.

Alamo BowlArizona against. Texas

6:15 p.m. PT, ESPN, December 29, 2021, Almodome, San Antonio, Texas

I think the Sun Devils lost the South to Utah on Saturday, but I think they still finished in the second bowling slot for the Pac-12, and finished with nine wins.

It would be a controversial – but successful – season for Pyramid Edwards and his cohorts if they could make it to the Alamo.

Las Vegas BowlUtah against. Wisconsin

7:30 p.m. PT, ESPN, December 30, 2021, Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas, NV

The Utes reach the Pac-12 Championship game again, and once again, they lose to Oregon. Their consolation is an inflated Las Vegas bowl against an opponent Mark they can beat.

5:00 p.m. PT, Fox, December 28, 2021, Petco Park, San Diego, CA

Jonathan Smith brings beavers back to the big bowl game. This is a major achievement for Oregon after spending some time going under Smith.

Los Angeles BowlUniversity of California against. Fresno State

4:30 PM PT, ABC, December 18, 2021, SoFi Stadium, Los Angeles, CA

How about a rematch of this classic Los Angeles game with an extra home game for the Bruins?

Sun BowlWashington State against. Boston College

9:30 a.m. PT, CBS, Dec 31, 2021, Sunball, El Paso, Texas

Who would have thought a few weeks ago that the Cougars would make it to the bowl game in 2021?

And not bad at that either.

Independence bowlWashington State against. Boston College

12:30 PM PT, CBS, December 18, 2021, Independence Stadium, Shreveport, Los Angeles

The Cardinals are one of the most mysterious teams in the country, and I think they have six wins and a game with the ball.
