The mothership has released its bowl projections for the upcoming season, and of note for the Pac-12: Oregon, not USC, is winning the conference and heading to the national championship game for a rematch against LSU, which handed the Ducks a 40-27 defeat in the Cowboys Classic last September in Arlington, Texas. The site for the title game is Sun Life Stadium in suburban Miami.
