Our conference preview series rolls on with a look out West. Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News and Bay Area Media Group joins AP’s Ralph Russo to breakdown the Pac-12. First, a discussion of some of the off-field issues facing the Pac-12 related to realignment and how a shifting landscape could impact a conference that has a new commissioner and a TV deal expiring in 2024.
On the field, the stories feel kind of familiar in the Pac-12:
Can Clay Helton win enough to keep his job at USC?
Is Utah being overlooked in the South Division?
Is this the year UCLA takes a leap forward behind Chip Kelly?
In the North Division, Oregon is the favorite but with a question at quarterback and Washington will look to contend behind a stingy defense.
