Andy Katz shares his predictions for the Pac-12 this upcoming season

Only one program in the Pac-12 has never had a Player of the Year: the Colorado Buffaloes. While they didn't join the conference until 2011, even the Utah Utes (who joined that same year) have had a player receive the honor.

Andy Katz thinks that'll change in 2019-20, and that's just one of several predictions he has for the Pac-12 this season. Check out the rest of them right here.
