2009 NCAA Bowl Projection, Part 11: The Pacific-10

We close out the power conference portion of the Bowl Projection Series with the other conference that makes an annual run for the Roses: The Pacific-10.

No longer is the Pac-10 “USC and everyone else.”

For the first time in seven seasons, the Trojans did not win or share the conference title; instead, Oregon’s victory over Oregon State in the Civil War earned the Ducks their first trip to Pasadena since 1995.

USC, in fact, isn't even in the pool of BCS-eligible teams. Their loss to Arizona dropped the Trojans to 8-4, their worst record since Pete Carroll's first season at the helm, and put them fifth in the conference.

But with the resurgence of Oregon State and Stanford, the emergence of Arizona and the always-steady California, the Pac-10 is still assured of sending a very good team to every bowl game they visit.

However, having seven bowl-eligible teams and only six usual tie-ins means it may take a miracle to get everyone somewhere.
