The Pac-12’s first full weekend of football games in 2022 features some games that are must-see and a few others that are likely to be over by halftime.

With nonconference opportunities to strengthen the league’s brand on a national level, the Conference is counting on teams like Utah, Oregon State, and perhaps even Arizona or Oregon to pull off marquee wins.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I’m joined by JT Wistrcill, host of Locked On Utes.

Everyone in the country is excited to see Utah’s matchup with Florida, a game that should have fans of EVERY Pac-12 school rooting for the Utes.

JT also shares which other game across the Conference he’s most excited to see, and why Oregon is in a similar position against Georgia in Atlanta, as Utah was in last season’s Rose Bowl Game against Ohio State.

We conclude with the first edition of ‘Pac-12 Prime Picks’ to choose the most enticing gambling lines in the conference of champions.

Betting Colorado at +13.5 is betting against the public, which historically is not a bad place to be in after they moved the line out 5 full points.

Utah (-3) is my favorite bet of the weekend at Florida, and Arizona may surprise some but could very well struggle to cover at San Diego St as a 6-point underdog.
