This article is part of our Spring Practice Preview series.
Spring practices have wound down by and large, but the college football world never rests. Now that the NFL Draft is in the rearview mirror, we can turn our attention to the upcoming 2019 college football season. We will be looking at the dozen of teams that call the PAC-12 home here, focusing on one intriguing storyline for each squad.
In some ways, the PAC-12 has been something of an afterthought the last couple of years. The SEC and the Big 10 seem to be pumping teams into the College Football Playoffs, Clemson is making a ton of noise from its perch in the ACC, and the Big 12 has the always-intriguing Texas, and Oklahoma has the last two Heisman winners to its name.
Meanwhile, USC has been a little down, but that could be about to change, and there are a couple other teams that at least can claim to be potential playoff teams. Namely, we're talking about the Oregon Ducks and the Washington Huskies. However, from a fantasy perspective, the PAC-12 has always been interesting. As long as Mike Leach is around, we know at least one quarterback is going to put up huge numbers, and defense often feels like it's optional on the West Coast.
You may have trouble staying up to watch the games, but the PAC-12 can be a huge boon for your fantasy lineup. With all that in mind, and the spring practices behind us, here are the things that have been percolating.
