College Football Playoff rankings: Rivalry week upsets shake up top of poll

This year's 2022 Pac-12 Championship Game features two programs coming off impressive regular seasons in USC and Utah. The game is Friday, Dec. 2 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

The two teams met earlier in the season as Utah escaped USC with a 43-42 win, handing USC its only loss of the season. According to pac-12.com, this will be the first year that the conference has the top two teams in the conference playing, not the North and South division champions, and matches up two teams from the former South Division. The South Division champion was 2-9 in the title game from 2011-2021.

The Utes are aiming for back-to-back Pac-12 championships after taking the crown in 2021; the Trojans are looking to snag their first Pac-12 title since 2017.

USC is fourth in the latest College Football Playoff rankings. Utah is 11th.
