Pac-12The 2022 season is shaping up to be one of the most competitive in recent memory, with four teams in control of their own destinies to be crowned the Conference Champion this year.

After a thrilling all-around weekend of College Football, the Pac-12 has the national media’s attention with College GameDay heading to Eugene this Saturday for a Top 10 showdown between UCLA and Oregon.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, Spencer McLaughlin explains why so many teams could win the conference in 2022 at this point.

For the first time this year, Spencer sees four Pac-12 schools as “winners” after the weekend’s results. Including two teams who seldom find themselves in that category.

usc logoAs is always the case for some teams, however, the weekend did not yield the results their fanbases were hoping for.

USC fans are no doubt disappointed in the loss at Utah, but their season goals are far from out of reach.

Meanwhile, Cal’s shortcoming was a familiar sight for Bears fans.
