I asked this on twitter and got a wide variety of responses: Who would be the Pac-12’s equivalent of Auburn? At the time I asked, Auburn was the conference’s No. 3 but moved ahead of Georgia in the AP poll.
So who would be the two-loss team in the conference that could stack up favorably with Auburn? Don’t answer USC because the Trojans have to be Alabama, each conference’s top team. Do you think whoever you choose (Washington, Washington State, Stanford) would beat Auburn? I do not.
