Pac 12 Power Rankings

The North continues to dominate and now has the top 3 teams in the conference...

1. Stanford (4-0, 2-0)
Stanford went about its merry Stanford way, methodically plowing through UCLA for their 12th straight win. The Cardinal will host Colorado on Saturday.

2. Oregon (3-1, 1-0)
The Ducks had a bye and now get Cal on Thursday night at home.

3. Washington (4-1, 2-0)
Washington was dominant in the second half against Utah and showed that they might be ready to give Oregon and Stanford a run in the North. The Huskies get a bye this week before hosting Colorado.

4. Arizona State (4-1, 2-0)
ASU received a scare from Oregon State, spotting them 13 points to open the game, but Brock Osweiler and company were able to rally and appear to be the heavy favorite in the Pac 12 South. The Sun Devils now head North to Salt Lake City for a battle with Utah.

5. USC (4-1, 2-1)
If it wasn't already clear, it is now; Robert Woods is the most explosive players in the country. Huge offensive effort for USC over Arizona. The Trojans receive a bye this week before heading to Berkeley to face Cal in a Thursday nighter.

6. Cal (3-1, 0-1)
The Bears enjoyed their week off and now get to travel to Eugene for a Thursday night game with Oregon.

7. Arizona (1-4, 0-3)
New week. Same story for Arizona as the offense scores, but the defense can't stop anybody. Luckily the tough part of the schedule is now over. The Wildcats look to get pick up their first conference win when they head to Corvallis to take on the lowly Beavers.

8. Utah (2-2, 0-2)
The Utes were dismantled at home by Washington and may struggle to reach bowl eligibility if Jordan Wynn is out for a long period of time. The Pac 12 South Division Champ and Pac 12 title game representative could very well be determined Saturday when Arizona State comes to town.

9. Washington State (3-1, 1-0)
Washington State won a thriller on the road against Colorado. May have gone a long ways towards saving Paul Wulff's job. The Cougs head to Los Angeles to take on a reeling UCLA team.

10. UCLA (2-3, 1-1)
UCLA played arguably their best game of the season against Stanford and still were blow out. The usually reliable special teams unit did them in this time. The Bruins face a must-win this weekend at home against Washington State.

11. Colorado (1-4, 0-2)
The Buffs dropped tough one at home against Washington State after fumbling in Wazzu territory while driving for the winning score in the final minutes. Any chance at a bowl bid is gone. Colorado travels to the farm for a date with Stanford on Saturday.

12. Oregon State (0-4, 0-2)
The Beavers had the Sun Devils on the ropes for a stretch, but remained winless after letting Arizona State claw back into it. One of their best chances to pick up a win this season comes Saturday when struggling Arizona comes to town.
