As the countdown to the 2022 college football season begins, there’s a bevy of storylines to follow in the Pac-12 outside of the conference realignment front.

Not every coach who started with his Pac-12 team in 2021 made it to the end of the year—most notably, Clay Helton and Jimmy Lake at USC and Washington, respectively.

Will all 12 current coaches still retain their titles by the time the regular season comes to a close?

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I get Pac-12 fans ready and focused on the football storylines that matter going into this season.

Herm Edwards is the betting favorite to be the first football coach fired, and a couple other coaches aren’t too far behind in the betting odds from BetOnline.

With actual games just days away, the Pac-12 has a myriad of big opportunities for the conference to pick up non-conference wins.

I go through the most important games for the Pac-12 taking place this weekend and what the ramifications could be.

Is Utah the Pac-12 team under the most pressure in Week 1?
