CFN Pac-12 Future Win Total Lines: 2019 Spring Projections

By

Pac-12 South

Arizona Wildcats

There’s just enough returning for a stronger Year Two under Kevin Sumlin. Khalil Tate and nine starters return on offense, and almost everyone is back on the defensive side.

If all goes well, the Wildcats should have a sure base of three wins over Hawaii, Northern Arizona and Oregon State. There are enough winnable home games to get to six wins, but the road games in the Pac-12 are all nasty.

Arizona State Sun Devils

Herm Edwards might be missing his defensive tackles from last season, and star WR N’Keal Harry is gone, but just about everything else is back and in place … as long as the quarterback situation is settled right away.

Getting to seven wins again is a good goal with sure-thing wins over Kent State and Sacramento State, and with plenty of winnable games like at Oregon State and against Colorado.

Colorado Buffaloes

Melvin Tucker has a nice team to work with. Steven Montez leads what should be a loaded passing game, and he has eight starters back on defense.

The Buffs have to take care of Colorado State and Air Force early, and then win a few of the tough home games against Nebraska, Arizona, USC, Stanford, and/or Washington.

UCLA Bruins

The Bruins will be better in Chip Kelly’s second season, but how much? The offense is loaded with talent, upside and experience, and the defense gets back ten starters. Will it all kick in right away as the Bruins build on the end of last season?

There aren’t any sure-thing non-conference wins playing at Cincinnati, San Diego State and Oklahoma – and there are a whole bunch of rough road games. UCLA should be good for at least seven wins, but outside of Oregon State at home, there aren’t any layups.

USC Trojans

After a dud of a losing season, the Trojans still have a whole lot of rebuilding to do. They need to replace just about everyone in the secondary, have to replace three starters on the offensive line, and need the young star prospects of last year to be special.

The road games at Washington and Notre Dame are the big problems, but there are no true layups. Every game will be work for a team with so many concerns and question marks.

Utah Utes

The defending Pac-12 South champs should be every bit as good if the stars in the linebacking corps can be quickly replaced, and if the O line can retool in a hurry with three new starters.

The schedule shouldn’t be too much of an issue with more than enough winnable home games to ensure bowl eligibility. Beat BYU in the opener, and the only tough road games remaining are at USC, Washington and Arizona.
