Pac 12 Power Rankings

Not much movement In rankings, outside of the Utes making a nice jump...

1.Stanford (3-0, 1-0)
Stanford beat up Arizona with a dominating second half. Andrew Luck and company get the week off this week before hosting UCLA.

2.Oregon (2-1, 0-0)
Oregon rolled through Missouri State with LaMichael James and Darron Thomas having big days. The defense wasn't at their best though, again, and will be tested this week when Nick Foles and Arizona come to town.

3.USC (3-0, 1-0)
USC stayed unbeaten with a convincing win over Syracuse at home. The Troajns hit the road for the first time all year as they head to Tempe to take on Arizona State.

4.Utah (2-1, 0-1)
No Pac 12 team was more impressive this week than Utah who blew the doors off of BYU with a second half performance as dominant as any we've seen in awhile. The Utes get a bye this week before their Pac 12 home opener at Rice Eccles against Washington.

5.Arizona State (2-1, 0-0)
ASU lost a tough one on the road to a solid Illinois team. No shame in that.The tough opening gauntlet for the Sun Devils continues with USC coming to town on Saturday.

6.Cal (3-0, 0-0)
Cal rolled through Presbyterian, putting up 63 points. The Bears travel to Seattle to take on Washington.

7. Washington (2-1, 0-0)
The Huskies hung tough with Nebraska for a half before getting blow off the field in the second. Washington proved that if things are going well, they can play with anyone. They'll host Cal on Saturday in their conference opener.

8. Arizona (1-2, 0-1)
Too many mistakes by the Wildcats despite Nick Foles again having a good game. If you want to beat good team like Stanford, you can't shoot yourself in the foot again and again. It doesn't get any easier this week with Oregon coming to Tucson.

9.Washington State (2-1, 0-0)
The quick start hit a wall at San Diego State, but the Cougars proved that they're not going to be a pushover, giving the Aztecs all they could handle. Wazzu gets a week off before starting Pac 12 play at Colorado on October 1.

10.Colorado (1-2, 0-0)
Coach Jon Embree picked up his first victory with a convincing win over Colorado State. They'll head to the horseshoe next week to take on Ohio State.

11.UCLA (1-2, 0-0)
No Pac 12 team looked worse on Saturday than the Bruins who were dismantled at home by Texas. Looks like this is going to be Rick Neuheisal's last season. The Bruins head to Corvalis for a date with the struggling Beavers to open their Pac 12 slate.

12. Oregon State (0-2, 0-0)
The Beavers thankfully had a bye after the worst start of any time in the entire country. They'll open the conference season at home against UCLA on Saturday.
