Pac Twelve Conference Football Schedules
Pac-12 Football Betting Schedules
The Pac-12 as we know it today originally started as the Pacific Coast Conference which originated in December of 1915 with California, Washington, Oregon and Oregon State – then Oregon Agricultural college – the founding fathers. Washington State, Stanford, the University of Idaho, USC, Montana and UCLA rounded the conference out from 1917-1928.
Montana bolted for the Mountain States Conference in 1950 forcing the PCC to only be nine strong for the next nine years. Then in 1959, numerous universities were put under the microscope for alleged slush funds and payments to students who were paid to play. The PCC was disbanded almost immediately.
So as to not punish those that didn’t partake in the illegal activities, the Athletic Association of Western Universities - otherwise known as the AAWU – was formed with Cal, Stanford, UCLA, USC and Washington acting as charter institutions. Once Washington State joined, the conference took on the moniker the Big Six. A couple years later, both Oregon schools joined to make it an even eight members.
In 1968, the conference changed its name to the Pac-8. After Arizona and Arizona State came over from the WAC in 1978, the Pac-10 as we knew it until 2011 was formed. That year, two new members were added – Utah and Colorado – to make it a 12 team league. The conference was split into the North and South Divisions and the Pac-12 Championship game was established which would send the victor immediately into a BCS Bowl.

Some great rivalries exist between these schools. The one many remember most would be the Big Game back in November of 1982 when Cal used five laterals on the ensuing kick-off after the Cardinal had just taken the lead to steal it back and punch it in the end zone while trying to avoid the Stanford band who were on the field celebrating thinking the game was over.
Other catchy rivalries are the Civil War between Oregon and Oregon State as well as the Rumble in the Rockies between Utah and Colorado. The Apple Cup between the Washington schools, and the Territorial Cup between the Arizona schools.
It’s been awhile since the Pac-12 won a national title, but it’s taken home 15 overall with USC’s nine leading the pack followed by Cal (3), Stanford, UCLA and Colorado who all have one.
Automatic bowl tie-ins to the Pac-12 are as follows: College Football Playoff, Rose Bowl, Alamo Bowl, Holiday Bowl, Foster Farms Bowl, Sun Bowl, Las Vegas Bowl, and Cactus Bowl.
Some of the highest scoring offenses in the country reside in this conference. On top of that, there’s some incredibly porous scoring defenses as well. That makes most teams residing in the Pac-12 one of the better over bets the sport has to offer.
