Nine Teams? No! But the Pac-12 just might send eight teams to bowl games this year—something never done before.
To be fair, it has been a short history so far, but 8 teams from 1 conference is still great.
Oregon must beat Oregon State for eight teams to get bowl invitations. If Oregon wins they may get an invite to the Fiesta Bowl that is outside of the seven bowls who reserve a spot for the Pac-12.
If that happens, it may be the first time that the Pac-12 sent eight teams to bowl games. If Utah was bowl eligible, it could have been nine teams.
