Calm down. It just so happens this year that two of the best teams in the country are the only ones capable of winning the Pac 2. It could be different in coming years.
Take for instance, Illinois last year. I never thought they were national contenders in 2012, but they are always dangerous in conference. They go into the Big 10 title match last year and knock off the Buckeyes 4-3.
