Pacific Takes Bowl Projections 10/30: Oregon to Rose Bowl & Utah to Cotton Bowl

Oregon & Utah stay ahead of the rest of the pack.

NCAA Football: California at Utah Gabe Mayberry-USA TODAY Sports

Rose Bowl - Oregon vs. Penn State - I feel like Utah is stronger than Oregon, but it’s starting to feel like it’s going to be a year where the Ducks are able to pull out close games and I actually think USC makes the Pac-12 Championship Game anyway.

Cotton Bowl - Utah vs. SMU - Maybe not making the Pac-12 Championship Game will be a blessing in disguise as I think the Utes only lose two games total and make themselves a nice at-large NY6 selection.

Alamo Bowl - Washington vs. Baylor - Okay, the Huskies can finally actually win out, right? I think a bye week does them well and they benefit from USC having non-conference losses.

Holiday Bowl - USC vs. Wisconsin - The Trojans are a dark horse to win the Pac-12 still in my opinion, but keeping them here for now.

Redbox Bowl - Arizona State vs. Michigan - The Sun Devils have another surprising season and get a chance to take down the other Michigan school.

Sun Bowl - Washington State vs. Duke - The Cougars take a step back this year though this isn’t a bad place for them to land.

Las Vegas Bowl - Stanford vs. Boise State - The Cardinal close out a disappointing season with the chance to beat what could be a ranked team.
