It is nearly January, which means the time is ripe for looking toward the 2013 college football season to see what the Pac-12 might have in store.
This past season was an exciting one, with Stanford taking over the top spot by defeating Oregon and ending the Ducks' title hopes.
The conference put two teams in BCS games for the third straight season, and many teams saw major improvement from 2011.
Start with Oregon State, who reversed its 3-9 record from 2011 to go 9-3. Or take Arizona, which saw an improved offense under first year head coach Rich Rodriguez. Do not forget UCLA, either, as the Bruins reached their second straight Pac-12 title game.
As is often the case, there are several questions looming large over the offseason. Will Chip Kelly bolt for the NFL? Will Washington ever make the step forward and become a serious contender in the north? How will Arizona replace Matt Scott?
Without further ado, here is a list of way too early predictions for every Pac-12 team.
