Few games for Week 13 in the 2014 College Football season appear likely to have major significance on the College Football Playoff picture. While this may not be a huge game to the national championship landscape, it is a big game in the Pac-12 and particularly in the Los Angeles area.

The SEC has ruled the landscape of college football for seven years by producing seven straight national champions. And yet, while the Alabama's, LSU's and Georgia's of the world continue their impressive runs, it is the Pac-12 that may just be the best conference in college football today.

Week 6 Game of the Week: Washington @ Stanford

These are two very good, balanced, complete college football teams. Look for a lower scoring (by Pac-12 standards), close game where a key play call or turnover decides the victor late, yet the game stays within a touchdown either way for most of the contest.

Lane Kiffin And USC: A Shockingly Poor Marriage

Jordan Schultz | Posted 01.19.2013 | Sports

Inking five-star recruits doesn't always translate to success. Kiffin is now 0-3 all-time versus Stanford and 3-8 at USC versus ranked opponents. Oregon put up 730 yards of total offense and 62 points against the Trojans, both all-time program worsts. The team is also markedly undisciplined, committing an egregious nine-plus penalties per game, the worst in all of college football.
