In this episode of the Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back in studio talking about the Utah Utes defeating the USC Trojans 47-24 in Las Vegas. The victory secured Kyle Whittingham's second-straight Pac-12 Championship and another Rose Bowl berth, this time against Penn State. Colorado was also making noise in the Pac-12 footprint by hiring Coach Prime to take over the struggling football program. Deion Sanders is leaving Jackson State to come to Boulder and there will likely be a lot of roster turnover before the start of the 2023 football season. Ryan and Dave talk about this monumental hire in the Conference of Champions and why they think this can work for the Buffs. The guys also go over where the rest of the Pac-12 programs are going bowling and how the Conference of Champions is being impacted by the newly opened NCAA Transfer Portal.

In this episode of the Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back in studio previewing the Pac-12 Championship between the USC Trojans and the Utah Utes. These two squads faced off back on October 15 with Kyle Whittingham's Utes edging out Lincoln Riley's Trojans 43-42 on a two-point conversion with under a minute to play in the game. The guys talk about how they think this match-up will go and make their pick against the spread, currently listed as USC -3 over Utah. They also discuss the Pac-12 decision to eliminate divisions in an attempt to create a better matchup that in this case potentially took away the more compelling game. With the division format USC would have won the South and faced off against Washington who would have won the North. The Huskies not only have one more win than Utah but they also have one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the country, Indiana transfer Michael Penix.

In this emergency episode of the Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods give their thoughts on the breaking news that Stanford head coach David Shaw announced he is stepping down from his position effective immediately. Saturday night the Cardinal fell to BYU at home 35-26 but Shaw said his decision was already made over the Thanksgiving weekend. Ryan and Dave talk about this major shakeup in the Pac-12 coaching ranks with the four-time Pac-12 coach of the year and winningest coach in Stanford history finally moving aside. They also discuss the other major head coaching news with Oregon offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham returning home to Tempe, taking over as head coach of the Arizona State Sun Devils. Dillingham was officially announced as ASU's head man just hours after the Ducks lost a stunner in Corvallis that, along with Washington's win in the Apple Cup, knocked them out of a chance to play for the Pac-12 Championship. Oh, and there is also a ton of Pac-12 football the boys will recap including the Trojans putting a capper on an 11-1 season with a controlling win over Notre Dame, Utah scoring all the points against Colorado, Jedd Fisch getting some Territorial revenge and lots more!

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back together again in studio recapping two of the most important match-ups of the 2022 Pac-12 football season, UCLA hosting USC at the Rose Bowl and Oregon hosting Utah at Autzen Stadium. Both games came down to the wire, though one was far more entertaining than the other, and both results went a long way to determining who would play for the conference championship in Las Vegas on December 2. With the victories by USC and Oregon the Trojans are in and the Ducks control their own destiny, getting in as the home team with a win in the Civil War against Oregon State on Saturday. They also recap the other week 12 games in the conference including Washington steamrolling Colorado, Jayden del Laura imploding against his old WSU squad, Big Game 4th quarter drama and the Beavers cruising in the desert. Looking ahead to the final weekend of the regular season the guys preview two Friday night games with the public California schools facing off against each other along with the Territorial Cup in Tucson. They also preview the Saturday rivalry games in Oregon, Washington and Colorado along with Stanford vs. BYU and USC vs. Notre Dame.

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back together again in studio recapping what they thought would be an all chalk Pac-12 football weekend with heavy home favorites cruising to victories. Turns out, week 11 was total chaos with Conference of Champions cannibalism going on, knocking out two of the three hopefuls for the Pac-12 to make the College Football Playoffs for the first time since 2016. Things got off to a rocky start Friday night with Colorado leading USC 3-2 after the first quarter. The Trojans righted the ship and blew out the Buffs as expected, but it set the table for a bad vibes Saturday for two of the other title contenders. Oregon had the marquee matchup with Washington, but the Ducks were still two touchdown favorites at home. The Huskies had other plans and pulled off the stunning upset thanks to another huge night from transfer quarterback Michael Penix. With Oregon losing, it opened up conference championship opportunities and eliminated some strange tiebreakers for the LA schools. In one of the Pac-12 After Dark games UCLA couldn't take advantage and fell to three touchdown underdog Arizona, putting their Pac-12 title on life support. Week 12 features another full slate of Pac-12 games with a virtual semifinal that has USC travelling to the Rose Bowl to take on UCLA and Utah heading to Eugene to take on Oregon.

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back together again in studio recapping what started off as a competitive Pac-12 football weekend with a compelling Friday night game between Washington and Oregon State but quickly turned into what was mostly blowout central on Saturday. After an impressive run picking against the spread last weekend Ryan and Dave struggled in their predictions for week ten. Week eleven is another full slate of Pac-12 games kicking off on Friday again with USC and Colorado followed by some potential clunkers on Saturday outside of the main event, Oregon hosting Washington in one of the best rivalries in the conference.

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back together again in studio recapping another exciting weekend of Pac-12 football that featured five games, four with double-digit spreads and four road favorites notching victories. The action got started on Thursday night with a hobbled Utah squad that took down Washington State in Pullman despite the biggest surprise of the weekend, star quarterback Cam Rising who was a game time scratch. On Saturday the Ducks continued their winning ways with an 18-point road win over Cal in which Bo Nix accounted for six touchdowns including three on the ground. USC was also banged up heading into the desert without top starters on both sides of the ball, but was still able to hold on for an 8-point win over Arizona. In the interim head coaching bowl Arizona State outlasted Colorado in Bounder and UCLA decimated Stanford at the Rose Bowl. The guys also discuss the Big 12's new media rights deal and what they think it means for the Pac-12 and Stanford stamping out fun by banning the Tree mascot for the rest of the season. Plus with Oregon, Utah, USC and UCLA 15-0 against the rest of the conference, which program has the best shot to knock off any of the top-4? And congrats to Oregon State who entered the AP top-25 despite being on a bye week! Looking ahead to week ten all 12 teams are in action featuring Oregon State at Washington on Friday night.

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back together again in studio recapping another exciting weekend of Pac-12 football that once again showed how important home field advantage is in the conference. Week eight had only four contests and three of the four home teams notched victories with the lone road team (Washington) failing to cover the 7.5 point spread at Cal. The marquee match-up was of course the Bruins on the road at Oregon leaving the Ducks as the lone Pac-12 team left undefeated in conference play. There are some wild scenarios for which two teams make the conference title game in this first season with no divisions with UCLA, Oregon, USC and Utah as the main teams in contention to make it to Las Vegas. The guys also discuss what Pac-12 commissioner George Kliavkiff had to say at basketball media day including comments about his letter to the UC Board of Regents that asked the board to block the Bruins from leaving the conference. He also doubled-down on his statement that UCLA would be worse off financially leaving for the Big Ten than it would be staying in the Pac-12. Looking ahead to week nine we get things started with a tough road test for Utah heading to Pullman to play Washington State on Thursday night followed by what mostly look like lopsided contests on Saturday outside of the interim coach bowl with Arizona State at Colorado.

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back together again in studio recapping another exciting and bizarre weekend of Pac-12 football. Week seven was about as upside down as you could have imagined with the two bottom dwellers of our POC Power Rankings securing victories. It was once again a great week for home teams with all four Pac-12 match-ups going to the home squad. It was also another good week if you were an interim head coach as Colorado's Mike Sanford got an emotional victory over California in his first game running the Buffs. And even the team that should have an interim head coach got a win with Stanford shocking Notre Dame on the road, scoring only one touchdown but still getting its first victory over an FBS opponent since early last year. The guys also take a look at the marquee game in the Pac-12 with Utah edging out an exciting one-point win over USC in Rice-Eccles Stadium. Looking ahead to week eight there are just four games in the conference with the big one being UCLA heading to Oregon with College Game Day making a West Coast appearance for the first time this season.

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back together again in studio for a special early week edition of the show where they break down all of the Pac-12 football action from week 6 and preview what is to come in week 7. The LA schools are on their way out in 2024 but they are apparently trying to exit in style with both USC and UCLA sitting at 6-0 for the first time since 2005. The Oregon Ducks have bounced back from their 46-point beatdown at the hands of Georgia and look like legit conference title contenders and ASU interim head coach Shaun Aguano got his emotional first win. As cool as it was for the Sun Devils to get an upset win over nationally ranked Washington just a couple weeks after Herm Edwards was fired, that result pales in comparison to what went down on the Farm in #Pac12AfterDark. The Oregon State Beavers scored three touchdowns in the final quarter including the game winner with 13 seconds left on their way to toppling Stanford 28-27. The Cardinal could taste the end of their 10-game losing streak to FBS programs, at least until they couldn't.

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods once again have some breaking news to discuss with the announcement that Colorado has finally pulled the trigger and let head coach Karl Dorrell go. The Buffs are winless on the season, 0-5 total and 0-5 against the spread and the administration had no choice but fire him and try to move on from the terrible decision it was to hire Dorrell back in 2020. In what was a home-dominated slate of games in the Pac-12 for week five with every road team losing, the guys recap all of the action from UCLA's dominate performance against Washington on Friday to Oregon putting a beat down on hapless Stanford late Saturday night. They also preview the all of the week six action that includes five games with both California and Colorado getting the week off (good news for the Buffs and interim head coach Mike Sanford).

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods continued their tear picking the Pac-12 football games in week four with both hosts going 4-2 against the spread. The guys start off the show talking about how the first full week of Pac-12 play went, including an incredible showdown in Corvallis between USC and Oregon State, Washington State once again snagging defeat out of the jaws of victory (to Oregon's benefit) and California's impressive offensive explosion against Arizona. The guys then focus their attention on some interesting match-ups in the Pac-12 for week five including a pair of undefeated teams facing off in the Rose Bowl with Washington visiting UCLA on Friday night. The Beavers will also try and bounce back by heading to Salt Lake City and facing the Utes who would love to avenge their OSU loss from last season. Please note the three Pac-12 After Dark games all feature point spreads of 17 points or more, so plan your evening accordingly.

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods bounced back significantly last week in their Pac-12 picks against the spread (9-2 for Ryan, 8-3 for Dave), even with their belief that Herm Edwards was somehow going to cover a 3-score spread against a team that featured actual human beings. Speaking of Herm, HE GONE! Arizona State finally pulled the trigger and let Herm go so the guys spend the top part of the show talking about the move, potential candidates and why they are not expecting the same treatment for Colorado's Karl Dorrell any time soon. It was also a great weekend for the Pacific Northwest teams with everyone notching a victory including Oregon spanking a top-15 BYU squad and Washington jumping all over the overrated top-15 Michigan State Spartans (and no we don't think it was a on the downlow interview to join the Big Ten). This was the first time the Pac-12 has recorded two wins over ranked teams on the same Saturday in 9 years! They discuss those games and how the rest of the Conference of Champions fared as they wrap up the majority of the out of conference slate and turn towards conference play. Speaking of conference play the guys make their picks against the spread for week four with six Pac-12 match-ups, highlighted by undefeated Oregon State hosting No.7 USC and undefeated Washington State hosting No. 15 Oregon. Please note that undefeated UCLA is going to Colorado but we don't recommend watching that.

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods have been following this conference for years but somehow both are batting just .500 picking the games against the spread. This week they go back over week two and talk about how things unfolded for the Pac-12 including a huge win for Washington State at Wisconsin, another beatdown for Colorado and the first conference match-up between USC and Stanford. The guys also take a look ahead to week three and once again give their picks for all Pac-12 games against the spread. The aforementioned Stanford has a BYE, but the rest of the conference is in action with some interesting non-conference games including Michigan State visiting Washington, Fresno State heading to the Coliseum, California on the road at Notre Dame, BYU visiting Oregon and Colorado on the road at Minnesota.

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are already in midseason form with their picks against the spread (meaning they are just as bad as they were last year). The guys do what they can to make sense of what happened in week one of Pac-12 play, where the conference went 9-3 overall but 0-3 against Power Five competition including blowout losses by Colorado and Oregon and a heartbreaking defeat by defending conference champion Utah. The guys also take a look ahead to week two and make their picks against the spread including the first conference match-up of the season when USC hits the road to take on Stanford. They also give an update on the POC Survival Pool where the majority of listeners advanced thanks to the Cardinal beating Colgate, but we did lose a couple contestants including one sicko who took Colorado to beat TCU in week one.

The guys make all of their picks against the spread for the annual season-long contest plus they reveal their survival pool selections for week one.

Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods looked at the schedule for every Pac-12 team and put in their predictions for how the season will go in the conference and which two programs will end up in Las Vegas for the Pac-12 Championship Game.  The guys also take a look back at how their predictions went from last year, go over the latest news from around the conference and address the latest rumors regarding conference realignment.

In this edition of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back in studio continuing their previews of the six remaining Pac-12 programs with Arizona State, Utah, Oregon, Washington State, Stanford and California. The guys hear from experts from each program's 247Sports website talking about the strengths and weaknesses of each program heading into the 2022 college football season. The guys also talk about the newly released media rights deal for the Big Ten that includes Fox, CBS and NBC and what it could possibly mean for the Pac-12. ESPN being left out of the deal should be a good thing for the Conference of Champions, but with the other three major networks involved in the B1G, there are less available options for commissioner George Kliavkoff to explore. Plus the UC Board of Regents weighed in on UCLA leaving Cal behind and the guys talk about what was said at that meeting (not that either of them went) and if they feel there is a chance the Bruins get forced to stay (walking away from a half a billion dollar Big Ten deal is VERY unlikely). They also talk about the new AP Poll that has Utah at No. 7, Oregon and No. 11 and USC and No. 14., the Athletic's look at the past 10 years of the Pac-12 Network plus David thinks about who his POC cohost would be if UCLA stays in the Pac-12 and USC (and Ryan) leave for the Big Ten.

In this edition of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back in studio (after a week off) giving a quick recap of what they saw at Pac-12 Media Day with commissioner George Kliavkoff addressing the state of the conference and declaring war on the Big 12. They also start their college football 2022 season previews for half of the conference with reporters from Arizona, Colorado, Oregon State and Washington checking in along with previews from USC and UCLA from Ryan and Dave. The guys also talk about the latest news on the television market front with ESPN dropping out of the Big Ten's next media rights deal. Fox continues to be a major player for the B1G but now CBS and NBC will be involved showing conference games as well. This will have an impact on the Pac-12's media rights negotiations, but no one knows how much. On one hand ESPN now needs more inventory which could be good for the Conference of Champions, but with CBS and NBC no longer on the table there will likely be less competition for ESPN and less incentive to pay more for the Pac-12's media rights. They also talk about the slowdown in conference realignment talk and now both feel what we have with USC and UCLA in the Big Ten and the Pac-12 with 10 schools is likely to be the new norm going forward (until something crazy happens and then it isn't).

In this edition of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back previewing what should be an extremely interesting and informative Pac-12 Media Day where we will hear from commissioner George Kliavkoff for the first time since it was announced that USC and UCLA were leaving for the Big Ten in 2024. Last year Kliavkoff was on the job for less than a month when he addressed the media, fielding questions about NIL, conference expansion thanks to Texas and Oklahoma announced they would join the SEC and why Washington State head coach Nick Rolovich wouldn't be attending Media Day in person. We thought 2021 was a crazy first year for the commissioner, but with two of the biggest brands leaving the conference 2022 says, 'hold my beer.' The guys also talk about what they expect to hear about the LA schools bolting, the negotiations for the new Pac-12 television contract, what's next for conference expansion and what sort of reaction they expect from coaches and players that aren't leaving the conference (as of now).
