The Pac-12 saw two teams pick up dominant wins against AP-ranked Top 15 opponents in week 3: Washington was better from the very first snap and throughout against No. 11 Michigan St, and Oregon was dominant against No. 12 BYU.
Those wins speak volumes about just how competitive the Pac-12 could be in 2022 as Washington looks to be playing like a contender.
On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I go through how each team in the conference performed over the weekend—with overwhelmingly positive results in the final week of non-conference play.
Utah and USC took care of business against Mountain West foes, and other teams avoided major upsets.
It wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows for Pac-12 teams this weekend, however.
UCLA needed a game-winning field goal to avoid disaster, and Colorado was not competitive for the third week in a row—ramping up the hot seat talk on Buffaloes head coach Karl Dorrell.
