Bowl projections: Can the Pac-12 get a team into the College Football Playoff?

The conference has three teams with a chance to make the College Football Playoff. Oregon, USC and UCLA are all at 8-1 through the first 10 weeks of the season and in the top 12 in the CFP rankings. The Ducks have some work to do; three of their final four games would be against ranked opponents and Oregon State is just outside the top 25.
