This is it. August and opening weekend seem like yesterday, but the 2013 Pac-12 football season is nearing its conclusion. And what a season it's been.
Though the conference will again go without a national championship, this has been a banner year. A record nine teams are bowl-eligible, including Washington State, which should snap the conference's longest postseason drought.
The 2013 campaign is also remarkable for the resurgence of USC, a longtime power that had seemingly hit hard times. But with a fiery interim head coach in Ed Orgeron and a thin but talented roster, the Trojans are one of the Pac-12's hottest teams. With the Trojans streaking and UCLA on the rise, the battle for Los Angeles is the conference's marquee matchup for Week 14—and could continue to be the Pac-12's marquee rivalry for the foreseeable future.
