Other than the Big 12, the Pac-12 is the BCS conference that is going to be the biggest mess this season.
UCLA, Arizona State and Washington are all getting better, while USC is heading in the wrong direction.
That's not to say the Trojans don't have the talent to make the Pac-12 title game, but as long as Lane Kiffin is head coach, the talent will be wasted.
So, the Pac-12 South is a mess, with USC, Arizona State and UCLA battling it out.
Meanwhile, between Bishop Sankey at running back and Keith Price at running back, the Washington Huskies have an intriguing backfield combination with the potential to put up monster numbers in 2013.
But to have any shot at winning the North division, they must get past Stanford and Oregon.
Both teams have enough talent returning to go undefeated with a few breaks, and their meeting in November could be to decide which one goes to the final BCS title game.
Yes, the SEC is the dominant force in college football right now, the Big Ten has the tradition and the Big 12 boasts the most entertaining offenses, but the Pac-12 is going to be the most interesting conference in college football.
Stay tuned in late, my friends.
