Which current Pac-12 college football programs are the greatest of all-time according to the UPI and USA Today Coaches final polls?
Using a ranking system taking all the AP final college football polls and assigning 25 points to the national champion, 24 for the final No. 2 team, 23 for the No. 3 team on down.
USC is easily the top Pac-12 program of all-time according to the rankings, UCLA is on an island at second, and then it’s a showdown among the next several programs.
This year, though, Oregon rolled up into the top five after ranking seventh last season, and Utah – despite its short time in the conference – was able to move up to No. 9.
One note on this – this is made up of current Pac-12 programs and factoring in their histories. Obviously many of these programs weren’t in the Pac-12 – and there wasn’t a Pac-12 – starting in 1950.
Again, this is based on the CFN formula. This isn’t any official ranking coming from USA TODAY or the Coaches Poll.
