The Pac-12, still waiting for its media deal, and the Big 12, which has not won a national championship in football since Vince Young’s 2005-06′ Texas team, have a tough path to reaching the summit in College Football given the shifting landscape.

So what would it actually take for them to get over the hump?

Today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12 is a crossover with Josh Neighbors of ‘Locked On Big 12’ to examine how each conference goes forward in an evolving landscape of CFB.

Spencer and I talk about what members of either conference have to do in order to compete at a national championship level.

We also discuss which programs in each conference are best positioned, at this time, to get close to breaking each league’s national championship drought in football.

Oregon is a clear option, but who else could be in the fold?
