July came and went and August is now upon us, which for college football fans means one thing: football season is now less than a month away.
Slates are wiped clean and every team is gearing up for what could potentially be their greatest season in school history (except for those unfortunate schools who are facing NCAA sanctions).
One conference that will have a bevy of teams turning the corner this season as they look to dethrone their previous champions is the Pac-12. Teams such as the Washington Huskies, California Golden Bears, Stanford Cardinal and USC Trojans will all be looking to unseat the three-time reigning champions of the Pac-12, the Oregon Ducks.
More than any year in recent history, the Pac-12 is going to be extremely competitive. Players such as Keith Price of Washington, De'Anthony Thomas of Oregon, Cameron Marshall of Arizona State, Matt Barkley of USC and John White of Utah coupled with all of the rest of their teammates will shed blood, sweat and tears in order to forward the goals of their universities on the football field.
These beasts of men, gods of the football arena, will stop at nothing to ensure their team remains as the last one standing come the end of the season.
Yet, it will not be easy to do so.
For any team that plays in the Pac-12 will face a gauntlet of teams the magnitude of which has not been seen in recent Pac-12 history.
Here are the marquee Pac-12 games of every week.
