Believe it or not, the Utes can still win the Pac-12 South Division and play in the inaugural Pac-12 championship game.
Realistically, don't count on it. Mathematically, though, it can happen. All Utah needs to do is win its last two games (at Washington State, vs Colorado) and have Arizona State lose twice while UCLA needs to lose once. The Utes would win any tiebreaker with the Bruins after Saturday's victory. If USC was eligible for postseason play, we wouldn't be talking about this. But we are. And after a 2-3 start, including an 0-4 start inside the conference, the Utes can still make some serious history.
The winner of the Pac-12 South would most likely go up against Oregon in the Pac-12 title game on December 2nd.
Utah has Washington State on the road this Saturday. I would have said that's an easy win until I saw WSU take down Arizona State in Pullman this weekend. The Utes then close out the season at home against Colorado on Black Friday.
ASU's last two games come at home against Arizona and Cal. As for UCLA, the Bruins host Colorado before closing out the regular season at USC.
So I believe the Bruins will lose that one game the Utes need 'em to. However, I think it's a long shot to have Arizona State drop two games at home to close out the year.
