Sonoran Hot Reads: Should Pac-12 go to eight conference games?

Time to overreact to a middle-heavy conference

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

With both of the Pac-12's top-ten teams losing on Saturday, it looks like the conference will be left out of this year's College Football Playoff, no matter what happens these last two weeks. That's led people to wonder if the Pac-12 is digging itself a hole it can't climb out of by playing nine conference games rather than the more popular option of eight. Lindsay Schnell says in there that all coaches would vote for an eight-game schedule. I don't think that was true a year ago, but might be now. This year's been weird though. There are no dominant teams in college football, and the Pac-12 has become the victim of certain teams getting hot at the right time.
