Outside of the December conference title tilt or a potential berth in the national championship game, no day this year will mean more to the Pac-12 as a whole than this Saturday.
All 12 programs will be on display with a slate of games that stretches from 9:00 a.m. PT to 7:30 p.m. PT.
No. 16 UCLA travels to No. 23 Nebraska, while California hosts No. 4 Ohio State and Arizona State welcomes No. 20 Wisconsin. No. 19 Washington visits Chicago for a neutral-site game against Illinois. Oregon will receive a visit from Tennessee, while Colorado can prove itself with a home game against Fresno State and USC hopes to right the ship against Boston College.
But as much as public perception of the Pac-12 will increase with a strong showing, the real prize for a number of conference programs could come on the recruiting trail.
