The Pac-12 will have one more year to try and make the four-team College Football Playoff before it—and the Conference—fundamentally change.

The league’s slew of nonconference football matchups will provide them the opportunity to return to the CFP for the first time since the 2016-17 season.

Why did Ohio State just cancel a home-and-home series with Washington?

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I call upon Spencer C McLaughlin, Esq. to look at some unlikely expansion candidates.

As the Conference looks to expand South, there is a bevy of schools to choose from. UTEP, New Mexico, and UTSA could all be options that might be able to bring SOME sort of value to the league—one day.

But are any ready for that in the near future?
