The top moments of the year in the Pac-12

Who loves year-end lists? Everyone loves year-end lists! Here's one of ours from Pac-12 Studios: the top 12 moments of the year. (And here's another in highlight form: the Pac-12's top 12 plays of the year.)

The moments are not restricted to the field or court – some are much bigger than that. Nos. 1-5 on this list were determined by our Pac-12 Sports Report staff. The rest? They were picked based on how many people watched the video or GIF or engaged with it on social media. So, loyal Internet fan, they were determined by you.
 
One last note: The below moments are all from this academic year, so essentially from August on. We hope you enjoy.
