While the top of the conference is obvious, Arizona has to be taking each game seriously as shown by this past weekend's games.
Saturday's game between Oregon and Stanford will go a long way in determining the best team in the conference, but Arizona will still be in consideration as well as USC and even a couple of others.
The Pac-10 is the strongest it has been in years and if Arizona overlooks any opponent, it is going to pay dearly.
Oregon State brings a squad that still has a tough defensive line and solid skill players on offense.
UCLA brings a team that just routed Texas.
UW brings a team that is led by Jake Locker, a player that can emerge at any time.
In other words, each team brings it strengths and, at this point, it is safe to say the winner of the conference is up in the air.
The best chance of winning the Pac-10 comes with a simple strategy. Arizona needs to win the games that it is supposed to win and then go from there.
If it does that, the Wildcats will be put in position to win the conference. If not, and there are some upssets, we could still be looking at a three or loss season.
The excitement surrounding Arizona is justified, but it comes with a warning.
Each game big in Pac-10
