By Jeff Stinger

With conference realignment on the horizon, this is the last time for the current Pac-12 picture to have a season to remember.

Favorites

USC Trojans

  • 2022 Pac-12 Championship Odds: +225

A notable head coach takes over the reins in USC, as former Oklahoma mastermind Lincoln Riley brings his winning pedigree to SoCal. Riley didn’t come alone from OU, though, as he brought along Sooner quarterback prospect Caleb Williams for the ride as well. Couple a solid offensive roster with a five-star recruit in cornerback Domani Johnson, and it’s easy to see why the Trojans’ flashy moves have them as the odds-on favorites to win the Pac-12 Conference race at the end of the 2022 season.

Utah Utes

  • 2022 Pac-12 Championship Odds: +240

Whereas USC made a push for title contention with blockbuster offseason moves, Utah stuck to the status quo and is still widely regarded as a strong favorite to win the Pac-12 like in prior seasons. Kyle Whittingham’s squad has not had a losing season since 2014 and is ready to defend its Pac-12 crown this year. The one-two punch of breakouts players Cameron Rising at QB and running back Tavion Thomas makes for a lethal tandem for the Utes’ quest to win back-to-back conference titles.

Dark Horses

Arizona State Sun Devils

  • 2022 Pac-12 Championship Odds: +2200

Expectations are high for QB transfer Emory Jones, who’ll look to turn Arizona State around with his experience under center from Florida after the team had a disappointing 2021 campaign. The Sun Devils are still under the stable leadership of former NFL head coach Herm Edwards, but Edwards’ job could be on the line if ASU doesn’t make the most out of Jones’ final year in collegiate football. Nevertheless, Arizona State has decent pieces to be still considered a solid sleeper pick to win the Pac-12 this season.

Oregon State Beavers

  • 2022 Pac-12 Championship Odds: +2500

A very encouraging 7-6 campaign in 2021 broke Oregon State’s seven-year drought of not having a winning season. Local hero Jonathan Smith’s hard work has finally paid off in his fourth year at the helm of the Beavers’ program, as their former quarterback who had an unparalleled performance in 2000 seeks to replicate or even surpass the previous season’s success. Did we mention that Oregon State pulled an upset over USC last season? That’s the scary potential that the Beavers possess as an under-the-radar threat in the Pac-12.

Huge Reach

Arizona Wildcats

  • 2022 Pac-12 Championship Odds: +25000

While most of the teams in the Pac-12 are well within striking distance of winning the conference title, the same could not be said about Arizona. The Wildcats were even fortunate enough to pick up their lone win in 2021 thanks to an undermanned Cal team that was hit hard by the pandemic bug during their scheduled match. It would be best to stay far from the Wildcats even as a longshot to win the Pac-12 title this season, but perhaps it’s wiser to check out how their more celebrated men’s basketball program is shaping up instead.
