NOV. 26 -- Oregon and UCLA remain 1-2 in this week's Pac-12 Power Rankings...

 #1 Oregon Ducks

You can make a very strong case that no team in the country is playing better than the Ducks.
Next Opponent: Oregon State
 #2 UCLA Bruins
Record: (9-2) Last Wk.: 2Trend: --
After beating their crosstown rivals, USC, for the third straight year, the Bruins can clinch a spot in the Pac-12 title game for the third time in four years if they can finally figure out Stanford.
Next Opponent: Stanford
 #3 Arizona Wildcats
Record: (9-2) Last Wk.: 3Trend: --
The Wildcats, on the other hand, will be hoping UCLA hasn't figured out Stanford and if they can beat Arizona State, they'll get a rematch with Oregon in Santa Clara.
Next Opponent: Arizona State
 #4 Arizona State Sun Devils
Record: (9-2) Last Wk.: 5Trend: 1
On the other hand, an Arizona State win over Arizona and a Stanford win over UCLA puts the Sun Devils back in the conference title game for the second straight year.
Next Opponent: Arizona
 #5 Utah Utes
Record: (7-4) Last Wk.: 4Trend: 1
The Utes played their worst game of the season in their final home game against Arizona but can still clinch a good bowl with a win over 'rival' Colorado.
Next Opponent: Colorado
 #6 USC Trojans
Record: (7-4) Last Wk.: 6Trend: --
USC was dominated almost from the get-go by UCLA and now have to recover quickly for their final home game against Notre Dame.
Next Opponent: Notre Dame
 #7 Stanford Cardinal
Record: (6-5) Last Wk.: 7Trend: --
The Cardinal kept The Axe and clinched a bowl for the sixth straight year, and will try to extend their mastery of UCLA on Friday.
Next Opponent: UCLA
 #8 Washington Huskies
Record: (7-5) Last Wk.: 8Trend: --
Finally the Huskies had a good effort on both sides from beginning to end and will be bowling for the fifth straight year.
Next Opponent: Washington State
 #9 California Golden Bears
Record: (5-6) Last Wk.: 9Trend: --
The Bears fell to Stanford again but can still make a bowl game if they can beat BYU, which will continue to show their improvement from a year ago.
Next Opponent: BYU
 #10 Oregon State Beavers
Record: (5-6) Last Wk.: 10Trend: --
The Beavers will have to beat Oregon if they want to go to a bowl, and that's easier said than done.
Next Opponent: Oregon
 #11 Washington State Cougars
Record: (3-8) Last Wk.: 11Trend: --
Luke Falk had an up and down game but ultimately the Cougs ran out of juice against ASU. A win over Washington, though, could salvage their season.
Next Opponent: Washington
 #12 Colorado Buffaloes
Record: (2-9) Last Wk.: 12Trend: --
Unless the Buffs can upset Utah at home, they'll go winless in Pac-12 play this season, though they still looked markedly improved from their first three seasons in the conference.
Next Opponent: Utah
