Pac-12 prediction: Las Vegas Bowl

By ESPN.com staff

The Pac-12 blog enters the bowl season with a 66-24 record. This week, we predict the lone pre-Christmas Bowl in the conference.

MAACO Las Vegas, Dec. 22

Boise State 41, Arizona State 24: It's possible that the Sun Devils may try to win one for coach Dennis Erickson on his way out. Or that they may adopt an "us against the world" mentality and play with fire we haven't seen since October. But even at their best, the Sun Devils would be underdogs. And I doubt they'll be at their best after losing four in a row to end the regular season, blowing the South Division title and getting their coach fired.
