Ted Miller at ESPN has written a column projecting bowl games.
"we’re still projecting the Ducks to the title game. And with the win in Tucson, Ariz., Oregon State is smelling all rosy."
"we’re projecting the Ducks with wins over Stanford and Oregon State, and two over USC."
So Miller’s math is that the conference ends with
Oregon 12-0 (undefeated)
Stanford 9-2 (losses to Oregon and Washington)
USC 9-3 (losses to Stanford, Oregon, and Oregon in the PAC-12 Championship)
The interesting thing is how Stanford gets absolutely thrown under the bus for losing to Washington. I don’t think Washington is that weak. Actually, in watching them handle Stanford, Sark’s Huskies are stronger in the box than Stanford was. Sark uncorked some better patterns against Stanford than Kiff uncorked in Palo Alto. So, Washington ends up handing Stanford a loss. USC had better beat Utah and get studying on Sark’s Stanford strategies. He’ll uncork the same against us.
