USA Today Sports released their predicted records for all 130 FBS teams for this upcoming season earlier today, crowning the USC Trojans as PAC-12 Champions. They have USC sitting atop the PAC-12 with an 11-1 record while going 8-1 in conference play.

USC is the only team projected to have one loss in the conference, followed by Stanford Cardinal (10-2, 7-2) Washington Huskies (10-2, 7-2) and UCLA Bruins (9-3, 6-3).

Other significant P5 conference champions include:

SEC: Alabama Crimson Tide

Big 12: Oklahoma Sooners

Big Ten: Ohio State Buckeyes

ACC: Florida State Seminoles

OSU (12-0) is the only team projected to have a better record than USC. USC also joins an exclusive list of one-loss teams including only Alabama, Wisconsin, and FSU. USC continues to receive praise from the media after being picked to win PAC-12 at conference media day and being ranked fourth overall in Preseason Coaches Poll.

We shall see soon enough if this talented Trojan team can live up to the preseason hype.
