    153 starts against the PAC 12 hasn't been impressive since 2005. Ive seen "experienced" PAC 12 teams get beat by "inexperienced" SEC teams over and over since then. I just don't have faith Oregon is big boy enough to beat this Auburn team that everyone believes will tank.

    All the magazines I have seen have Oregon a slight favorite. My stats say the goobers are a slight favorite. I would go with Auburn.

    I have heard several people say this, but I am not really sure what that is based on. Auburn's D-line was terrible last year
    Ya gotta believe!!!!

    I tend to agree, 81. I'll be rooting for the Ducks, but think it's a fool's errand until such time that a Pac 12 team shows it can hang with an SEC team in the trenches for 60 minutes.

    That, and the fact that both Auburn and Gus tend to over-achieve vs. mediocre expectations. Of course, they consistently under-achieve high expectations, but that's not the case this year.

    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    I think it's about the experience coming back more than the quality of what the line was last year. I think it's more of a toss up than anything.

    I am a little surprised by Ole Miss and UCLA in the underdog role. I would put both a favorite by at least 3 points.

    Cincinnati beat UCLA 26-17 in Pasadena last season. Phil Steel has Cincinnati at #1 in AAC-East over UCF. He has UCLA at #4 in Pac12-South behind Utah, USC, and ASU.

    Phil Steele projects Memphis as the top G5 team playing in the Cotton Bowl. SBN has them tops in AAC 2019 S&P+ rankings.

    A lot of folks had Iowa State as a sleeper pick for the Big 12.
