College football will experience a pretty odd game on December 3, 2011.
Much like the C-USA, the Pac-12 will have a conference title game that is hosted by the team with the better record.
NCAA rules say that to have a conference title game, a conference must have at least 12 teams.
The Pac-10 had Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State, USC, UCLA, Arizona, Arizona State, Cal and Stanford.
That's just 10. So, the conference went out and got Utah out of the Mountain West Conference and Colorado out of the Big 12.
Now, the conference has 12 teams, and the conference title game will be between the winner of the Pac-12 North (Oregon, Oregon State, Cal, Stanford, Washington, Washington State) and the Pac-12 South (USC, UCLA, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Utah).
Oregon will roll through the Pac-12, beating Stanford and Southern Cal.
Arizona State, who I predict to win the Pac-12 South, will suffer some losses to Oregon and Southern Cal among others, but it will represent its division in the Pac-12 Title Game, simply because USC is not eligible.
In Eugene, Oregon defeats ASU, 55-28, to win the Pac-12. However, a loss to LSU in Week 1 is just enough to keep the Ducks out of their second consecutive BCS Title Game. Oregon goes to the Rose Bowl.
