Sorry to break this little projectory on UA bowl chances but do they realize in that article that UA has to be bowl eligible first to be even consider on what bowl game their predicting to be in?

Because it kind of funny how all the sudden UA is being consider on a possibility of making it to a bowl after getting a win and hope to god if they win four more game.

While they need to win 4 more, that seems very well within reach right now. Because if you have not watched the PAC compete this year you miss the point. The PAC is NOT a good conference! We can get as many as 8 wins with the current schedule. We avoid Cal and WSU so 8 wins while pushing it, is not out of the question.
Tea.s we likely lose to are Washington, Oregon, and Utah.  Everyone else is well below expectations.

I dont think you get the situation their in right now, I have PAC 12 network so i can watch every team play regardless unlike some. But let me give you lil breakdown ok.

Only the way for UA to get 4 win is for them to win 4 game, but against who? UCLA and Oregon State are problably the only two game UA will likely win if they dont screw up.

Between Stanford two consecutive blowout defeat and USC stunning lose to BYU wont be guarantee Wins so i see them two game a lost, Forget about avoiding Cal and Wash State because UA still have to face Oregon of all people including Washington which will be a guarantee lose.

Utah and Colorado will be interesting ones to see. UA can either go 0-2 or 1-1.

Then their ASU. Better hope their offense dont start clicking before that showdown or they keep playing as well as they should. Lose this game then will miss a bowl game for the second year in row with Tate coming out party being a complete joke.     

You can't just tell a fan or a person that UA is favor in all of those game. We might be looking at a possibility of yet another losing season.

Colorado just lost to Air Force.  I don't think there will be an intimidation factor when we visit Boulder.

assu's defense significantly improved, but they're averaging less than 20 PPG against Kent State, Sacramento and Michigan State (who is good...but still gave up more points to Western Michigan than the devils).

USC and UW proved that they're not invincible.  Both will be tough, but Arizona absolutely has an opportunity to finish the season 4-5.

First, I do see games, but I predicted Stanford at 6-6/7-5 before the year began.
When some had UCLA ranked I picked the below Arizona.
ASU has some nice pieces, but pieces do not add up to a whole unless all the pieces are there.
OSU is OSU.

There is four games there for you to chew on.

USC has major problems and while the talent is there the direction with leadership is not. Call it a toss up game.
Colorado will have some good games and so.e bad games. I believe we are better than they are even if both those are road games.

Yes the Ducks are looking at least solid but we have played well with them In recent years.
Washington is solid but we have them at home. Always a chance.
Utah is another home game where we will have our shot.

We always seem to lose one we should not and win one we should not.
We lost to Hawaii and now we need the win.

So we win the first four, split the next two, and take one of the other 3. That makes us 8-4.
If we take the under at 7-5 we should be bowling this year. Enjoy your day!

I think Stanford, UCLA, Oregon State & Colorado are wins.

assu and USC are toss-ups.

UW, Oregon & Utah will be tough to pull off...but we always seem to have one big upset per year.  Let's hope it's Utah because it gives us our best opportunity to move up the Pac-12 South rankings.

Almost every single year, with very, very few exceptions, we upset someone and get upset by someone. This goes back to Larry Smith days - the entire PAC10/12 era has been like that.

Last year, at 3-4, we lost to a  dismal 1-5 UCLA team. Then the following week at 3-5, we knocked off #19 Oregon. 

2017 was a rare anomaly in which we did not have the upsets...but almost every it happens.

ALSO - in the PAC 10/12 there is almost always one team that surprises in a big way and one that disappoints in a big way. Might be Cal and Stanford this year, respectively.
