- CBS Sports made its Pac-12 predictions and only Jerry Palm did not pick USC to win the Pac-12 South. He picked Utah.
College football writer Dennis Dodd said USC was the most overrated team: “You don’t lose Ronald Jones Jr., Sam Darnold and a handful of talented defenders and return as a playoff contender. Throw in a promising — but still freshman — quarterback (J.T. Daniels), and it looks a lot like a 9-3, 8-4 season. In fact, it will be all Clay Helton can do to hold off Utah this season”
- Oklahoma named Kyler Murray its starting quarterback. Coach Lincoln Riley (pictured) didn’t seem to need to wait until game week.
