Will Kansas State likely outperform their preseason expectations anyway? Probably. But that will require more wizardry from Snyder this spring.

For the second time in five seasons, Oregon came up 60 minutes short of a national championship.

UCLA is coming off back-to-back 10-win seasons for the first time since 1997-98 and 18 starters are back from a team that nearly won the Pac-12 South last year. Coach Jim Mora has reeled in four consecutive top 20 classes on the recruiting trail, so talent certainly isn’t an issue for 2015. However, there’s a big question mark surrounding the Bruins, as standout quarterback Brett Hundley must be replaced.
