Never before has scheduling been a bigger issue than the 2014 College Football Playoff.

 

The committee clearly took a stance on Baylor’s weak non-conference matchups and it cost the Bears a chance at the national championship. That shouldn’t ever be the issue in the Pac-12 — also known as college football's second-best league.

The 2015 Pac-12 season is shaping up to be another year filled of intrigue in both division races. Oregon is the favorite in the North, but the Ducks have question marks on both sides of the ball. And the expected replacement for quarterback Marcus Mariota – Eastern Washington transfer Vernon Adams – won’t arrive until this summer. In the South Division, five out of the six teams have a strong case to be picked No.

The Pac-12 South Division was viewed by some as the best in college football a year ago. At this stage of the year, it's not unreasonable to predict five of the six teams to be ranked in the preseason. A legit case could be made for any of the top four — USC, Arizona State, UCLA, Arizona — to win the division. Buckle up, it's going to be a fun year out West.
