We have reached the finale of our 64-team bracket to figure out which is the best Pac-12 football team of all-time and congratulations to 1991 Washington for taking home the honor.
In case you missed our earlier posts, we put together a bracket of the 64 best Pac-12 football teams of all-time and a panel of Pacific Takes writers voted on each match-up until we got here.
Here are explanations for why our voters cast their vote for 1991 Washington over 2004 USC as the best Pac-12 team of all-time and the final bracket.
Avinash Kunnath - I never watched 91 Washington, but I knew that team was incredible. They had an amazing defense, perhaps the best the conference has had to offer. Two teams managed to crack 20 points that season, and both were in two touchdown losses. 2004 USC was great too, but they are just a tad bit more inconsistent and historically overrated for whipping Oklahoma. The Trojans nearly lost to a four win Stanford team and a six win UCLA squad. They were a great team, but honestly 2005 USC was more of the juggernaut that just ended up slipping up at the last minute.
