The Pac-12, as previously noted, has eight bowl-eligible teams with only seven contracted bowls. Further, Stanford's loss to USC on Saturday makes it far less likely the conference will get two BCS bowl teams (ADs across the league just redlined a half-million from their revenues), which means one fewer spot than we've projected all season.
Further, Washington State's win at Arizona gives the Cougars' bowl hopes a significant boost. If they can beat either Utah on Saturday or Washington in the season finale, the Cougs will go bowling for the first time since 2003.
Meanwhile, the Utes and Colorado need to win out in order to become bowl eligible. They play on Nov. 30, the final game of the regular season.
