All but one Pac-12 team have already played in their bowl games. Surprisingly, Oregon, the team with the 4th best offense in the nation, has actually been the one to put the lowest scoring game in a bowl game they won.
The Pac-12 have gone 6-2 up to this point, with only one team left to make this a mostly successful bowl period: Stanford playing Michigan State in the Rose Bowl. Considering the fact that the Spartans are an excellent defensive team and Stanford average 33.2 points per game, there’s a chance Oregon won’t be last among the conference’s teams by the end of January 1.
Washington State lost to Colorado State 48-45 in shocking fashion despite building a lead of 22 points. Two costly fumbles eventually meant losing the game, as the Cougars finished the season at 6-7 after losing in the New Mexico Bowl.
USC finished the season at 10-4 with a 45-20 win over Fresno State in the Las Vegas Bowl. Cody Kessler put on quite a show with 345 passing yards while Marqise Lee had a huge day with 7 receptions for 118 yards and two touchdowns.
Oregon State beat up on Boise State in the Hawai’i Bowl, winning 38-23, forcing a couple of turnovers and getting 107 yards (with a touchdown) on the ground from Storm Woods, finishing the season at 7-6.
Washington played without Steve Sarkisian on the sidelines, beating BYU 31-16, mostly carried by Bishop Sankey, running for 95 yards and scoring two touchdowns. The Huskies finish the season with a 9-4 record.
Oregon had no problem dealing with all the attention Mack Brown was getting, beating Texas 30-7 in the Alamo Bowl with a brilliant performance from Marcus Mariota. The quarterback threw for 253 yards and ran for 133. Oregon finish the season with a 11-2 record.
Arizona State lost to Texas Tech 37-23 in the Holiday bowl, as a pretty successful season ends with a 10-4 record, losing their last two games. They’re the only team to score less points in their bowl game than Oregon.
Arizona finish the season at 8-5 as Ka’Deem Carey rushed for 169 yards and two touchdowns in the 42-19 win over Boston College in the AdvoCare V100 BOWL.
UCLA had no problem picking up their first bowl win since 2009 in the Sun Bowl, dominating Virginia Tech 42-12 thanks to Brett Hundley putting on a show, helping the Bruins to a 10-3 season.
