Pac-12 Bowl Tie-Ins, Affiliations
The Pac-12 Champion will automatically go to the Rose Bowl if it’s not selected for the College Football Playoff. If the top Pac-12 team is in the CFP, the highest-ranked available team is in the Rose.
On other note, the San Francisco Bowl against the Big Ten that was canceled over the last two years due to COVID issues isn’t a sure-thing to come back in 2022.
