The championship’s regular season is in its penultimate week, and two matches are scheduled for today (Friday). The first match will be between New Mexico State and Liberty University (24). The second match will feature the 5th-seeded Oregon University against 3rd-seeded Washington University, and it promises to be a thrilling encounter. These two teams will compete at Allegiant Stadium for the final Pac-12 championship.

The Pac-12 is one of the most highly regarded conferences in college football, and its future is uncertain. This will most definitely be the last night of the league as we’ve always known it, anchored by the big-box schools of Los Angeles, Arizona, and the Pacific Northwest. Currently, Oregon and Washington are involved in a lawsuit to determine control and cash of the Pac-12 against the universities that chose not to leave the Pacific College conference.

On Saturday, eight more games will be broadcast nationally, with some of them deciding the conference champion and the following bowl game participants. The game between Oklahoma State and Texas Longhorns is expected to be the most interesting. This game will be closely watched, significantly impacting the Big 12 conference final standings and the bowl game selections.
