Most Likely Team To Win: USC

It’s been a few years since the Trojans have been the elite team of the golden coast, but after paying their dues for a couple of seasons and stocking up talent afterwards the Trojans are good enough to win the Pac 12 and could very well find themselves in this year’s playoffs. Lead by quarterback Cody Kessler, the USC offense will produce exceptionally across the board. USC was dragged down last season by poor offensive line play, but a full season of development helped the unit improve by USC’s bowl game victory against Nebraska.

The offense will be prolific in 2015, but the development of the defense will be the determining factor for USC winning the conference crown and a getting playoff spot. The secondary is in great shape with both corners returning and with excellent recruiting the Trojans have immediate impact players, including true freshman Cameron Smith at middle linebacker.  

A Sleeper Team That Could Do Well: Utah

Running back Devontae Booker has a Heisman quality season to help the Utes finish with their best record since 2010. Utah’s strong running game will help them excel, but the Utes defensive line will be the vocal point of the focal point of the team. Utah’s defensive lead the NCAA in sacks in 2014 and finished sixth in tackles for a loss. The strong and fierce defensive line will help Utah steal a game or two against a superior Pac 12 team such as Arizona State or Oregon. Utah makes it to a meaningful bowl game and improves on head coach Kyle Whittaker’s 8-1 bowl game record, since taking over head coaching duties in 2005.
