The California Golden Bears (7–5, 4–5 Pac-12) have finished our regular season, but our future remains uncertain pending the Pac-12 conference championship game, as well as the championships for the SEC and the Big-12 and how they affect the selections for the College Football Playoff and New Year’s Six games.
Here’s how various sources are predicting the Pac-12 will spend the bowl season.
Post–Week 14 bowl projections
|CFP/Cotton||Utah (CFP)||Utah (Cotton)||Utah (CFP)||—|
|Sun||Washington State||California||Arizona State||Arizona State|
|Las Vegas||Arizona State||Washington State||Washington State||Washington|
The 247 Sports prediction would be frustrating for Sun Devils—ASU, Cal, and Washington are in all entangled with 7–5 overall records (4–5 Pac-12) with ASU having the best head-to-head record (1–0 as they did not play Washington), but this projection would have them as the lowest-picked team.
