Pac-12 power rankings ahead of 2022 college football season

Spring has sprung, and with it the first official batch of very early college football rankings and predictions for what figures to be an exciting 2022 season.

Especially in the Pac-12, a league that hasn't quite made a dent in the national picture since the advent of the College Football Playoff. But which can change that in the months to come after some bombshell coaching hires.

It's been almost 20 years since USC, the league's superpower, has won the national championship, but the addition of head coach Lincoln Riley and a bevy of blue-chip transfer players could finally tilt the balance of power back in Troy's direction. At least, eventually.

Dan Lanning takes over the Oregon program after Mario Cristobal's departure and looks to beef up the Ducks defense in the image of the unit he coached at Georgia.

Defending Pac-12 champion Utah is coming off a banner season after beating Oregon twice and coming within three points of Ohio State in an instant classic Rose Bowl.

Where do things stand for the 2022 season? Scroll through to see the current preseason Pac-12 power rankings, from worst to first.
