Pac-12 Team-by-Team Schedule Predictions

TL;DR – Stanford wins the conference and goes to the Playoff.

The predictions were based on the same advanced statistics ratings I use to rate each week’s games. I did give a slight increase in ratings to the home team of each game.

Bowl Predictions

Utah: ???*
Washington St.: Las Vegas
ASU: Cactus
UCLA: San Francisco
USC: Alamo
Washington: Holiday
