This profiles to be Kyle Whittingham‘s finest staff. The Utes now have a official top-20 offense to go together with their all the time official top-20 protection. Eight starters return on that offense, together with breakout QB Cam Rising. Rising’s dual-threat sport was an ideal match subsequent to hammer again RB Tavion Thompson, who punched in 21 TD final 12 months. Utah’s power-game ethos is aided by one of many nation’s premier TE duos.

The protection should change LBs Devon Lloyd and Neifi Sewell however ought to stay a top-20 unit. Utah is relying on Florida switch LB Mo Diabate to supply a right away impression. The corners are top-notch. And Utah’s entrance is rangy and lively, stocked with future NFL expertise.


Thor’s projected win complete: 10.4
Las Vegas win complete: 8.5
Thor’s guess: OVER

The Utes needs to be thought-about heavy favorites within the Pac-12 and bonafide CFP contenders. They aren’t being handled as such by the sportsbooks. Take the over all day.

The Geese have 15 returning starters, together with a brand new backfield. Center-of-the-road QB Anthony Brown cedes to above-average-via-high-variance-play Bo Nix. Regular workhorse RB Travis Dye cedes to electrical Byron Cardwell (and a small handful of ballyhooed children working in behind him). An OL returning 4 starters was augmented by a top-five JUCO switch signing. It’s a top-five total nationwide unit.

Protection is new HC Dan Lanning’s bread and butter, after all, and the previous Georgia DC ought to be capable to coax enchancment out of this bunch in Yr 1 regardless of the lack of EDGE Kayvon Thibodeaux. Final 12 months’s DL really wasn’t good, rating No. 113 in sack fee and No. 84 in line YPC allowed — so this 12 months’s can’t assist however enhance. The LB corps is superior, a top-5 nationwide unit with two official stars. The secondary is the open query, changing three of 5 starters. How shortly Lanning can construct that group up will inform this unit’s ceiling.


Thor’s projected win complete: 9.3
Las Vegas win complete: 8.5
Thor’s guess: Go

Fairly the poetic symmetry with the opener in Atlanta in opposition to Lanning‘s former Georgia Bulldog staff, isn’t it? That isn’t Oregon’s solely troublesome OOC sport, however luckily, the Geese get BYU at dwelling later in September. My numbers advocate for an over play, however I’m going to move solely as a result of I don’t belief Bo Nix.

HC Lincoln Riley. QB Caleb Williams. RB Travis Dye. WR Mario Williams. WR Jordan Addison. In an unprecedented offseason of faculty soccer, USC stole the present. The Trojans’ 20-man portal class simply ranks as the most effective in faculty soccer historical past. Per PFF, the Trojans’ 1.57 wins shares gained within the portal are the most-ever signed. Frankly, we’re in uncharted territory: No program’s roster and workers have ever modified this drastically 12 months over 12 months.

The one-most predictive consider preseason fashions is the earlier season’s outcomes. These aren’t relevant right here, clearly. My energy rankings have the Trojans leaping 38 spots. That’s tied for the most important bounce within the nation. You may be asking – why no more? Basic questions on new gamers meshing into new schemes and extra particular questions on Riley’s Yr 1 protection. DC Alex Grinch and his assistants not too long ago have been wry in public feedback with the media concerning the protection’s progress in practices. It’s going to take time. An excessive amount of happening with that aspect of the ball to place the Trojans within the preseason top-30.


Thor’s projected win complete: 9.1
Las Vegas win complete: 9.5
Thor’s guess: Go

Riley’s first USC offense goes to be nice. The protection will likely be a work-in-progress. The objectively truthful quantity is “9.” I’m nonetheless passing at 9.5, however I did take into consideration going underneath.

Faculty soccer is best with Chip Kelly, and for that purpose, it was good to see Kelly return to stable floor with an 8-4 file in Yr 4 at UCLA after failing to win greater than 4 video games in any of his first three. Regardless of having solely eight starters again this fall, there’s a great probability that Kelly is about to enhance on that exhibiting.

An important starters return on offense within the type of the dynamic backfield duo of QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson and RB Zach Charbonnet. A powerful trio of receivers joins them. Three returning starters on the OL are joined by a former starter getting back from damage and a stud switch import. The protection returns solely two starters, however Chip earned his paycheck this offseason by successful a number of high-profile competitions for portal-play defenders*.

*(plug-and-play, however for the portal – let’s make it a factor)


Thor’s projected win complete: 8.6
Las Vegas win complete: 8
Thor’s guess: Go

Laughably straightforward schedule – a P5 enjoying Phil Steele’s No. 75 SOS (a handful of G5 groups play harder)! In lieu of that, it’s stunning that Vegas has put in the Bruins with a flat “8” quantity. That’s probably resulting from UCLA’S low variety of returning starters. However, Chip, DTR, and Charbonnet are again off an 8-win season, UCLA simply signed the No. 8 switch portal class, and there’s a great probability that the Bruins will likely be favored by greater than a TD in seven video games this fall based mostly on matchup alone.

The Jimmy Lake period was a trainwreck. Beneath UW’s former DB coach, the Huskies completed No. 2 EPA/move however No. 98 or worse in the whole lot else. Washington goes from a coach who appeared to not understand the staff performed offense to a coach famend as an offensive guru. Kalen DeBoer, in flip, offers the keys to previous buddy QB Michael Penix Jr. (formally, as of Tuesday), the twin menace with a dwell arm that he coached at Indiana. Accidents have been a bugaboo – he’s suffered 4 season-ending accidents – however Penix might flip this offense round if wholesome. UW has sturdy expertise at receiver, however no one is aware of it as a result of the QB play and schematics have been so dangerous.

The Huskies managed to complete No. 113 in EPA/run allowed final season regardless of the presence of third-team All-P12 DT Tuli Letuligasenoa, PFF’s highest-graded iDL. Deboer signed a 335-pound JUCO NG to start out subsequent to him. There’ll clearly be some regression on move protection after shedding star CB Trent McDuffie and Kyler Gordon to the NFL Draft. However the monumental positive aspects about to be made on run protection ought to greater than offset them.


Thor’s projected win complete: 8.3
Las Vegas win complete: 7.5
Thor’s guess: OVER

Keep in mind what we have been saying about how straightforward UCLA’s schedule is? Washington’s is sort of as straightforward (Steele ranks it No. 72). Whereas UCLA performs three OOC cupcakes, and UW performs two cupcakes. Within the third, the Huskies welcome Michigan State to Seattle. However issues break proper for the Huskies in P12 play, the place the Huskies keep away from each Utah and USC.

All hell broke free when the NCAA began investigating recruiting violations at ASU. The upshot, for now, was a cops-crashing-the-high-school-party mad-dash of mass transfers. Final 12 months’s staff went 8-5 with 20 returning starters. Over the offseason, 17 gamers transferred. 4 extra have been drafted, and 4 others have been signed as UDFA. As we stand, HC Herm Edwards solely returns three starters on offense and 4 on protection. As we are saying in Minnesota: oofta!

If Herm is nice at something, it’s promoting. So he made lemonade. He offered Emory Jones a golden parachute out of Florida to start out at QB. He offered one other to Xavien Valladay to start out at RB. Each had fallen out of favor at their earlier stops. Herm signed others whose earlier staffs had left them, he signed former hyped recruits who hadn’t fairly panned out but, and he signed sub-division stars trying to escape within the FBS…. it’s just like the Village Individuals of portal lessons, I’m telling you. However in opposition to all odds, Herm has pieced collectively a decent-looking roster of rejects and mercenaries after the decent-looking roster he hand-picked and developed bought spooked and walked.


Thor’s projected win complete: 7.4
Las Vegas win complete: 5.5
Thor’s guess: OVER

Herm’s portal additions weren’t concerning the lengthy sport. Herm’s in survival mode. It was a crucible of an offseason, and Herm seems to have traversed intact. He’s removed from out of the woods, after all. However the schedule brings much-needed excellent news. The three-game OOC contains two cupcakes plus a street sport at Oklahoma State. OSU is rarely a picnic, however the Pokes are down this 12 months. Crucially, ASU avoids Oregon whereas getting Utah and UCLA at dwelling. I actually can’t consider I’m about to sort this after the best way the offseason started (I didn’t even suppose he would survive it), however… I really like the over.

Oregon State gained seven video games final 12 months. It returns 15 starters and ranks No. 22 in returning manufacturing. HC Jonathan Smith is again. So is Probability Nolan. Nolan has an superior, skilled offensive line working in entrance of him. Departing is a 1,337-yard rusher, RB BJ Baylor. The highly effective dashing assault paved by the Joe Moore-finalist offensive line was the straw that stirred the offensive drink final season.

The Beavers are hoping that the combo of RBs Damien Martinez/Deshaun Fenwick offers an affordable facsimile of Baylor and that the OL doesn’t drop off regardless of shedding two starters. That had higher be the case as a result of Nolan’s ceiling is capped. The protection goes to overlook leading-tackler LB Avery Roberts (128 tackles), who put out a ton of fires. The protection completed sub-90 each EPA/run and move and changed coordinators mid-season. However with 9 starters again, the depth needs to be improved if nothing else.


Thor’s projected win complete: 5.8
Las Vegas win complete: 5.5
Thor’s guess: Go

Smith gained seven video games final 12 months and has 15 starters again. So why the tepid 5.5 win complete quantity? Is that this a entice or a possibility? I like what HC Jonathan Smith is constructing, however I’m as spooked as Las Vegas seems to be by this schedule and in addition by the dramatic enchancment that a number of Pac-12 packages seem to have made this offseason. Final 12 months, the Beavs have been hunters. This 12 months, they’ll be hunted by the groups making leaps. This isn’t the slam-dunk guess it seems to be on the floor. I’m not bullish sufficient to go underneath – simply spooked sufficient to remain away.

New Wazzu beginning QB Cam Ward has Bailey Zappe to thank for this chance. Ward was a prolific FCS star (4,648 yards and 47 TD) who’s going to step proper into an FBS beginning lineup. Like Zappe, Ward was imported alongside together with his FCS OC (Incarnate Phrase’s Eric Morris). There are just a few variations to notice. Whereas Zappe was a fitness center rat rhythm thrower with bodily limitations, Ward is a late-bloomer with a dwell arm and above-average athleticism however work-in-progress processing.

HC Jake Dickert is the previous DC, LB & S coach at Wyoming. His protection returns all 4 starters alongside the road. It is usually skilled within the secondary. The linebacking corps, nonetheless, should be completely remade. Dickert signed a second-team all-MWC switch who remodeled 100 tackles final season to plug one of many holes.


Thor’s projected win complete: 4.9
Las Vegas win complete: 5.5
Thor’s guess: UNDER

I really like the dice-roll Wazzu took on Ward, however it could be a giant mistake to view him as some type of approximation of Zappe. Ward ought to give the Cougs extra big-play sizzle on the expense of extra turnovers and three-and-outs. Between that, a poor protection, and, after all, enjoying a P5 schedule, I’ve my doubts that Wazzu makes it to a bowl this fall.

The case for: Stanford has 17 starters returning, together with an NFL prospect at quarterback. Stanford is at its finest when the offensive line and tight ends are sturdy, and on this case, all six starters at these positions return. Accidents harm the staff final 12 months, together with alongside the OL and on protection, and now target-hound WR Michael Wilson is again wholesome. HC David Shaw will determine this out – he has to!

The case in opposition to: Shaw is 13-19 during the last three years – he’s cussed, and he ain’t changin’ his methods. The offensive line returns intact, however boy, did it wrestle final 12 months. Because it has for a number of years operating now, regardless of its recruiting pedigree. The most important perpetrator of Shaw’s fall has been his defenses. Over his first eight seasons, when his groups have been good, these defenses allowed 20.4 PPG. During the last three, when his groups sucked, they allowed 31.3 PPG. Blake Martinez ain’t walkin’ by way of that door!


Thor’s projected win complete: 4.5
Las Vegas win complete: 4.5
Thor’s guess: Go

We haven’t talked concerning the largest issue standing in the best way of Shaw’s capability to show again the clock to the great instances: The schedule. After the opener in opposition to FCS Colgate, it’s a bear! The opposite two OOC video games are in opposition to Notre Dame and BYU, and Stanford bought the toughest-possible Pac-12 draw, lacking patsies Arizona and Colorado. I really like this Stanford squad. However due to the ridiculously-difficult schedule (No. 7 Steele SOS), I need to move – the Vegas win complete falls smack-dab on my projected wins.

Cal went 5-7 final season, however with 5 losses by a TD or much less! Seemingly so near a breakthrough, HC Justin Wilcox stays a mediocre 26-28 by way of 5 seasons. However, it’s onerous to get enthusiastic about Wilcox’s 2022 outfit. Solely eight starters return, tied for the least within the convention, and Wilcox’s transfers ranked No. 60 out of 64 P5 packages in win shares added, per PFF.

An important switch he signed was QB Jack Plummer from Purdue, wanted following QB Chase Garbers’ commencement. Your complete backfield was reworked after RB Christopher Brooks was misplaced within the portal to BYU. Thumper Damien Moore’ll change him. Wilcox had an honest run protection final 12 months and doubtless will once more. He’ll attempt to complement it with a methodical, clock-control offense.


Thor’s projected win complete: 4.7
Las Vegas win complete: 5.5
Thor’s guess: UNDER

One factor Cal has going for it’s a favorable schedule. Notre Dame arrives within the OOC, however the two different OOC are cupcakes. In P12 play, Cal geese each Utah and Arizona State. And it will get Oregon, Washington, and UCLA at dwelling. However regardless of all that, and even if I believe Wilcox is a stable coach, I can’t get behind this staff. I don’t just like the roster, and I believe the remainder of the Pac-12 is improved. I don’t suppose Cal goes bowling. Give me the underneath.

Trade people have been bullish on the Jedd Fisch rent. Pay no thoughts to final season’s 1-11 reset, and deal with the core being constructed. Fisch signed the No. 27 switch portal class, together with QB ​​Jayden de Laura and WR Jacob Cowing, a legitimately high-octane aerial duo. It’s onerous to undersell how massive an improve de Laura will likely be. Final 12 months, Zona’s quarterbacks posted a 12/18 TD/INT fee, whereas de Laura posted a 23/9 TD/INT fee. However it wasn’t simply within the portal the place Fisch crushed it.

Extremely, regardless of the rancid 1-11 file – which sarcastically in all probability aided Fisch within the portal – he signed the No. 22 recruiting class. That included 5 four-star recruits, two of whom could begin instantly (WR Tetairoa McMillan and TE Keyan Burnett). On prime of all this, Arizona really has 15 starters returning and ranks within the prime half of the FBS in returning expertise.


Thor’s projected win complete: 3.5
Las Vegas win complete: 2.5
Thor’s guess: OVER

Arizona was sneaky-frisky final 12 months, with 5 of 11 losses coming by single digits. The protection slashed 8.4 PPG from the earlier season and is prone to maintain the rollbacks coming with eight starters returning. What’ll I be having? The Fisch. With a glass of bourbon.

Karl Dorrell’s a goner. Dorrell was a shocking rent who appeared to vindicate Colorado’s brass by coming inside a sport of the Pac-12 title sport in Yr 1. That was a circumstantial fluke we have now the COVID season to thank for it. Utah crushed the Buffs, then was crushed by Texas within the bowl sport. Colorado proceeded to go 4-8 final season. If I’m proper, issues are about to get an entire lot worse.

I discussed above how 2022 USC was the largest winner in switch portal historical past. Colorado is amongst its very largest losers. The Buffaloes misplaced 23 gamers to the portal. Dorrell was compelled to play protection within the portal, signing guys simply to plug ever-expanding defection holes like a tragic model of the Flex Tape man. Final 12 months’s staff wasn’t adequate, and it could be beautiful if this one was higher.


Thor’s projected win complete: 1.6
Las Vegas win complete: 3.5
Thor’s guess: UNDER

After I was an undergrad at Kansas, HC Mark Mangino’s OOC philosophy was “load up on lambs.” This needs to be the mantra of each have-not P5 – free OOC wins are the most affordable factor in your management that raises your odds of going bowling. Colorado’s schedule is a worst-case state of affairs schedule for a nasty P5 staff. Removed from getting into P12 play with three bagged wins, Colorado as a substitute will kick off the season with TCU, (at) Air Power, and (at) Minnesota. Not a great P12 draw, both, lacking each Stanford and Wazzu.
