2017 Pac 12 Season Football Preview
Looking for Pac 12 Conference 2017 predictions? The Pac 12 had one team get to the College Football playoff last year, and that team was the Washington Huskies. This year they feel like they are a loaded conference up top, and they are hoping they can at least get one team back into the playoffs this year.

Sometimes the Pac 12 is a forgotten conference because they do play a lot of games after dark in the East Coast, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have talent.
So can the Pac 12 get into the playoff again this year? Or will they be on the outside looking in?
Pac 12 Conference 2017 Odds: USC Trojans +110
Not only are the USC Trojans the favorites to win the Pac 12 Championship at +110, a lot of experts believe this is a National Title contender. They currently are +700 to bring home the National Championship.
The Trojans are led by Sophomore quarterback Sam Darnold who comes into this season with all kinds of hype after a really good freshman season.
People are already proclaiming that Darnold is going to be the next great NFL quarterback, so there is no doubt the pressure is on.
Two things really need to happen if this team wants to not only win the Pac 12 title, but compete for a title. First, they need to find out who they can trust at the receiver position. They lost their top two targets from last year and Darnold is going to need to build some good chemistry early.
The Second thing that needs to happen is the defense needs to step up. Now the defense was good last year, but they need to be elite to reach their goals.
Pac 12 Conference 2017 Odds: Washington Huskies +325
After winning the Pac 12 title last year, the Washington Huskies come into this season with the second best odds to win the title.
They had a lot of talent that left for the NFL last year, but they have a lot of guys that should fill those voids, even if they do get a younger.
The biggest returning guy from last year is at the quarterback position. Junior Jake Browning is back for his Junior year, after starting the first two seasons on campus.
He has a big arm, and makes really good decisions with the football, and the Huskies are going to need that type of play from him again this year if they want to win the title for the second year in a row.
Pac 12 Conference 2017 Odds: Stanford +800
Every year it seems like Stanford goes about their business quietly, but every year they are competing for a Pac 12 title near the end of the season. They are hoping they can have that type of success this year, and get to another title game.
The Cardinals have most of their guys back from last years team, but they are missing a key piece. Christian McCaffrey and Solomon Thomas were both top ten picks in the draft this last year, and were special talents.
One of the big issues this year will be at the quarterback position and questions surrounding the quarterback position. They need to have solid play there if they want to win the title.
Pac 12 Conference 2017 Odds: UCLA Bruins +900
The UCLA Bruins are coming into this season off a 4-8 record last year, but there is a lot of optimism surrounding what this team can do, and it starts with Josh Rosen.
Rosen could very well be the first quarterback taken in next years NFL draft, if he stays healthy, but that is a big if.
Last year the offensive line really struggled, and it was part of what led to the injury for Rosen. This off season they haven’t done anything to show that they will be improved at that position this year. If they want to win the title though, they are going to need to take a hug leap forward.
Pac 12 Conference 2017 Odds
- USC +110
- Washington +325
- Stanford +800
- UCLA +900
- Utah +1200
- Oregon +1600
- Washington State +1600
- Colorado +1800
- Arizona State +3300
- California +8000
- Arizona +8000
- Oregon State +8000
Pac 12 Conference: 2017 Prediction: USC Trojans +110
I think it is going to be a good battle all the way down to the end, but the difference will be all the star players the Trojans have.
