1. Oregon (8-0, 5-0) 4 first place votes
The Ducks could have hung 100 on Colorado, but settled for 70 in a 56 point win. Now it's the Pac 12 game of the year when they travel to USC next week.
T2. Stanford (6-, 4-1)
The Cardinal don't like to make things easy on themselves, but they were able to squeak past Washington State at home. Should be another win this week at Colorado.
T2. UCLA (6-2, 3-2)
The Bruins won a wild one at Arizona State to stay in the Pac 12 South hunt. The Bruins can make their case as the best in the South at home against Arizona at home.
T4. USC (6-2, 4-2)
Marquise Lee had the greatest receiving day in Pac 12 history, but the Trojans couldn't stop Matt Scott in the USC loss to Arizona.
T4. Oregon State (6-1, 4-1)
The dream season is over as Oregon State fell to Washington. The Beavs now host Arizona State at home.
6. Arizona (5-3, 2-3)
Rich Rodriguez got his first big win at Arizona as the WIldcats knocked off USC in a nail biter. They'll try to get back into the Pac 12 South race at UCLA this weekend.
7. Arizona State (5-3, 3-2)
The Sun Devils missed Will Sutton in their loss to UCLA at home. It gets even tougher this week with a road date at Oregon State.
8. Washington (4-4, 2-3)
Washington continues to be tough at home, knocking off undefeated Oregon State. Now they'll head to Cal for a Friday night clash.
9. Utah (3-5, 1-4)
That's the Utah team we've been waiting for. They finally put it all together in blowing out Cal. The Utes host Wazzu this week in a must win.
10. Cal (2-6, 1-4)
Cal looks to have given up on Jeff Tedford and the 2012 season after getting demolished by Utah. The Bears will host Washington on Friday night.
11. Washington State
Washington State hung with Stanford in Palo Alto, but ultimately fell short. The Cougars look for their first conference win this week at Utah.
12. Colorado (1-7, 1-4)
Gave up 56 first half points to Oregon. The Buffs didn't win. They're awful. It shouldn't get better this week when they host Stanford.
