Pac-12Four teams are squarely in the mix for the 2022 Pac-12 Championship Game in Las Vegas this December, and right now several teams have set themselves up to play their way into that game in the second half of the season.

The path (and tiebreakers) for each team has seemingly unlimited ways that they could play out if each team plays at their best for the final six weeks of the season.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, Spencer McLaughlin is joined by senior writer/editor at, Carter Bahns.

Together they break down the path that lies ahead for USC, Utah, Oregon, and UCLA to play for a Pac-12 title this year.

Some matchups have already played out meaning a couple of schools may need some help from other teams, but that does not mean they won’t eventually receive that help.

Oregon State, already with 2 conference losses, is more than likely unable to reach the conference championship game even if they win out in their conference slate.

Still, the Beavers turned in another strong performance on Saturday in Corvallis and could be poised for a strong end to the 2022 season as they look to get over .500 for the first time since 2013—a feat that is now an expectation rather than a goal for Oregon State fans.
