  2. Oregon eyeballs playoff, first national title

    Ted Miller

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Oregon had a Stanford problem. And then it didn't. It had an Arizona problem. And now it doesn't after stomping the Wildcats 51-13 in the Pac-12 championship game. The Oregon program had a Heisman Trophy problem, but that li...

  3. Plenty of grumpy teams in Pac-12

    Ted Miller

    It's been another banner year for the Pac-12, one that might even get better if the conference wins its first national title since 2004. Five teams are ranked, eight are bowl-eligible and seven won eight or more regular-season games. Yet there's a...

  4. Territorial Cup has hate and relevance

    Ted Miller

    What makes a great college football rivalry? Two things: 1. Passionate and legitimate ill will; 2. National relevance. Arizona and Arizona State have long had the former, with the bad feelings advancing beyond the typical state rivalry because of ...

  5. Utah has no passing fancy

    Ted Miller

    Utah owns the Pac-12's second-best defense and best special teams. It runs the ball well. A 6-2 record and national ranking also are nice, considering the already bowl-eligible Utes finished with losing marks the previous two seasons. So it wouldn't ...

  7. Preseason magazines on Pac-12

    Ted Miller

    Preseason magazines don't always get it right, but they certainly whet our appetite for the college football season. As for how they view the Pac-12's 2014 pecking order and national standing among the preseason Top 25s, there's been a high degree...

  9. Pac-12 again wins most national titles

    Ted Miller

    The Pac-12 didn't win a national championship in any of the marquee sports this year -- football, men's or women's basketball or baseball -- but it still won more national championships than any other conference. The conference claimed 10 national...

  10. Pac-12's best nonconference games

    Ted Miller

    The Pac-12 typically plays a rugged nonconference schedule, but the 2014 slate is, well, only fair to middling. There's a true marque national game -- Michigan State at Oregon -- and there are three matchups with Notre Dame. But there aren't a who...

  14. Consensus on Pac-12 class rankings

    Ted Miller

    It's been just over a week since national signing day, so just about all those post-signing day complications -- did that letter of intent arrive? did anyone get added after the fact? -- have mostly been resolved. Athlon Sports therefore did every...
