Fresno State is one of the strongest potential expansion candidates for the Pac-12, with a former FOX executive comparing them to Utah when they joined back in 2011.

What sorts of components do the Bulldogs bring to the table if they were to be added?

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I fully examine one of the most enticing expansion options for the Pac-12.

Washington had a stellar 2022 season at 11-2, so what should their expectations be heading into 2023?

The transfer portal radically impacted quarterback play in the Pac-12 this season in the best way possible, leading to a Heisman winner and the country’s leading passer.

That trend is set to continue heading into next year as well.
