2016 Week 1 Pac-12 Bowl Projections

Pac-12 Week 1 Rankings

The Pac-12 bowl ties are solid, but Arizona’s loss to BYU could be a problem in terms of having a slew of options. The Wildcats should still find a way to be bowl eligible, but if the league doesn’t get a team into the CFP, some teams won’t have a bowl home.

The Pac-12 sends a team to the Rose Bowl, even if a team goes off to the CFP. The rest of the pecking order flows from there, but there’s still a question mark when it comes to geography and matchups that work best.
