The Pac-12 has six teams in the latest iteration of the College Football Playoff top 25 rankings, more than any other conference in America.

The three lowest-ranked teams (Oregon State, Washington, UCLA) are still not getting the full amount of respect they deserve given the seasons they’ve had to this point.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I”m joined by Carter Bahns (senior writer/editor at to talk about why the Beavs, Huskies, and Bruins all deserve to be ranked higher.

Carter also sheds insight on how the Beavers can avoid a potential letdown on the road against a struggling Arizona State squad.

This year’s ‘Big Game’ between Stanford and Cal may not have the highest stakes, but the history of that matchup that still makes it intriguing in its 125th iteration.

Plus, we answer a listener question about why players decide to leave CFB for the NFL when returning for another year might be to their benefit.
