Pac-12 bowl projections: Stanford to Rose, Oregon to Alamo, WSU to Holiday, USC to Sun

New, 2 comments

Who's going where?

Rose Bowl: Stanford. With Clemson and Alabama taking care of their business, the Cardinal will be the odd team out and will end up playing either Iowa or Ohio State in Pasadena.

Alamo Bowl: Oregon. The Ducks early struggles will cost them a New Year's bowl, but they are still going to earn the conference's second bid, and they will head to San Antonio and probably a date with a strong TCU side.

Holiday Bowl: Washington State. This is between USC and Wazzu, but expect the Cougars to nail this bid down. The Cougars will be making their first significant Pac-12 bowl in a decade and San Diego probably doesn't want a repeat of the Trojans.

Foster's Farms Bowl: UCLA. The Bruins are wanted by the executives, and the team will thus head on over to Santa Clara for a matchup with a Big Ten foe.

Sun Bowl: USC. The Trojans are likely to end up in this game, although it's quite possible the committee in El Paso weren't thrilled by their no show a few years back and pick Utah instead.

Vegas Bowl: Utah. Who wouldn't be excited for a renewal of the Holy War? If the Utes drop this far expect the committee to scoop them up to pair them up with BYU.

Cactus Bowl: Cal. This will be close between the Bears and hometown ASU, but the attraction of a potential top lottery draft pick Jared Goff might be enough to lift the Bears over the top.

Poinsettia Bowl: Arizona State. ASU gets a nice consolation prize with a trip to San Diego.

Armed Forces Bowl: Washington. The Huskies would likely take on Air Force in this game.

Heart of Dallas Bowl: Arizona. Totally guessing which at-large team goes where at this point.
