3rd Annual USB College Football Head Coach Power Rankings (PAC 12)

The USB’s 3rd annual COLLEGE FOOTBALL HEAD COACH POWER RANKINGS continues with a look at my personal favorite conference, THE PAC 12!

Last year was a bit of a down year for the conference. I’m predicting a quick turn around this year though for the conference. Why? Because there’s just way too much talent in the head coaching department for the conference to be that bad.

So, who’s got the top spot in the PAC 12 this year?

Can anyone unseat Stanford’s David Shaw as the “King of the West” in the PAC 12?

LET’S FIND OUT!!!
