OCT. 29 -- UCLA moves up to No. 5 in this week's Pac-12 Power Rankings...

 #1 Oregon Ducks
Record: (7-1)Pts.: 623Last Wk.: 1Trend: --
The Ducks rolled past Cal but now comes their Bay Area bugaboo in Stanford though this one will be in Autzen Stadium.
Next Opponent: Stanford
 #2 Utah Utes
Record: (6-1)Pts.: 521Last Wk.: 4Trend: 2
The Utes swept the Los Angeles schools, the first time they've ever done that and only the second time a Pac-12 South school has done that since conference expansion.
Next Opponent: Arizona State
 #3 Arizona State Sun Devils
Record: (6-1)Pts.: 573Last Wk.: 2Trend: 1
Taylor Kelly returned and got the Sun Devils past Washington. Now comes a monster Pac-12 South home game with Utah.
Next Opponent: Utah
 #4 Arizona Wildcats
Record: (6-1)Pts.: 483Last Wk.: 5Trend: 1
The Wildcats were ripe for an upset from Washington State but instead crushed the Cougars and never gave them a chance.
Next Opponent: UCLA
 #5 UCLA Bruins
Record: (6-2)Pts.: 604Last Wk.: 6Trend: 1
Easily the most impossible school to figure out in the Pac-12, the Bruins needed overtime to beat Colorado. But now they play three of their final four games in the Rose Bowl.
Next Opponent: Arizona
 #6 USC Trojans
Record: (5-3)Pts.: 557Last Wk.: 3Trend: 3
USC lost another game in the final seconds and will kick themselves for their final minute defense again.
Next Opponent: Washington State
 #7 Stanford Cardinal
Record: (5-3)Pts.: 567Last Wk.: 8Trend: 1
The Cardinal beat Oregon State easily but a win over their Civil War rival will be more impressive and give them a leg up, again, in the Pac-12 North.
Next Opponent: Oregon
 #8 Washington Huskies
Record: (5-3)Pts.: 500Last Wk.: 7Trend: 1
Washington's offense was a problem from the opening kickoff and couldn't capitalize on a pretty good defensive effort.
Next Opponent: Colorado
 #9 California Golden Bears
Record: (4-4)Pts.: 408Last Wk.: 9Trend: --
Cal was going toe-to-toe against Oregon for much of the first half, but their defense continues to make it tough for their offense.
Next Opponent: Oregon State
 #10 Oregon State Beavers
Record: (4-3)Pts.: 420Last Wk.: 10Trend: --
The Beavers frustrated Kevin Hogan early but couldn't get anything going and need to find a way to score if they want to go bowling.
Next Opponent: California
 #11 Colorado Buffaloes
Record: (2-6)Pts.: 379Last Wk.: 12Trend: 1
Colorado has been close in some games this year that they've lost and Mike MacIntyre's biggest job is going to be getting these guys to finish off games.
Next Opponent: Washington
 #12 Washington State Cougars
Record: (2-6)Pts.: 398Last Wk.: 11Trend: 1
Yes, they have a Pac-12 win while Colorado doesn't, but Colorado has looked more competitive the past few games than Washington State has.
Next Opponent: USC
