USC football and Lincoln Riley refuted the very skeptical preseason media polls

Beating the UCLA Bruins is a very sweet feeling for any USC fan. What adds to the sweetness of the win over the Bruins is the berth the Trojans have gained in the 2022 Pac-12 Championship Game, set for Friday, Dec. 2 in Las Vegas.

USC will play in the Pac-12 title game for the first time since 2017 and just the second time overall.

Playing in the Pac-12 Championship Game was a central preseason goal for this team. It means USC will be playing for either the Rose Bowl or the College Football Playoff. This is the expected USC standard. Team goals can be achieved.

12 — COLORADO

11 — STANFORD

9 — ARIZONA STATE

How did ASU beat Washington?

Reminder: The Huskies have not won in Tempe since 2001.

8 — ARIZONA

The best of the non-bowl Pac-12 teams. The season will be a failure if the Wildcats can’t beat Arizona State.

7 — WASHINGTON STATE

The Cougars are the seventh-best team in the Pac-12, and they have been playing great football the past three weeks. Games in September and October were the ones that got away. Imagine if WSU had been able to capitalize. The blown 12-point lead against Oregon seemed to stick with this team in a bad way. The season is likely very different if the Cougars hold on against Bo Nix.

6 — OREGON STATE

The Beavers will give Oregon a tough game. The Ducks don’t have an easy path to Vegas. It’s a clear path, but not an easy one.

5 — UCLA

The Bruins…
