In 2010, the Pac-10 was one of the most competitive conferences in the entire country and eventually saw its top two teams, Oregon and Stanford, compete in BCS games.
This year, the conference will welcome two new programs, Utah and Colorado, and become the Pac-12.
College football is probably one of the most unpredictable sports in the world, so it is very unclear whether the race for the Pac-12 title will be anybody's to win once again. However, it looks like Oregon and Stanford will once again be going mano-a-mano for the conference championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl—or perhaps to the BCS title game in New Orleans.
While the actual competition on the field may be between only two programs, the crown of the best mascot in the conference is a wide open race.
No matter how difficult it may be, I will attempt to rank the Pac-12's mascots from the worst to the best.
