Ranking the Pac 12 squads after 3 weeks of play

A little of bit of movement in our weekly Pac 12 power rankings

1. Oregon (2-1)

Oregon used backup Jeff Lockie to take down Georgia State. The offense continues to hum, but the defense is a huge question mark as Utah comes to town

2. UCLA (3-0)

It wasn't the prettiest of performances, but the Bruins squeezed by a pesky BYU team behind a monster game from running back Paul Perkins. Now they'll hit the road to face Arizona.

3. Utah (3-0)

Utah held off Fresno State in a game that wasn't really as close as the final score indicated. The Utes had two special teams scores and another on defense. They'll need the offense to get going this week at Oregon.

4. Arizona (3-0)

Arizona fell behind Northern Arizona 3-0. Then they proceeded to 77 of the next 87 points and set all kinds of school offensive records. After a cupcake non-conference, we'll see if they're for real when UCLA comes to Tucson.

5. Stanford (2-1, 1-0)

The Cardinal pulled off a shocker in dominating the final three quarters on the road at USC. If this is the real Stanford team, then they'l challenge Oregon in the North. Next up is Oregon State.

6. Cal (3-0)

It took 45 points a missed Texas extra point at the end of the game for the Bear to stay undefeated, but they'll take the solid road win. On to Seattle for a matchup with Washington next.

7. USC (2-1, 0-1)

Oh Sark. You Sarked this one. USC fall hard at home against Stanford.

8. Arizona State (2-1)

The Sun Devils continue to struggle as New Mexico ran with them for a half before pulling away. Next up is a home date with USC.

9. Washington (2-1)

The Dawgs played their best game of the season in taking down Utah State at home. They're young, but you can see the talent that could be dangerous by the end of the year.

10. Colorado (2-1)

The Buffs took down rival Colorado State in overtime as they won back to back games for the first time in year. Now it's a big one with Nicholls State.

11. Oregon State (2-1)

The Beavers found a run game in a come from behind victory over San Jose State. They'll get Stanford at home on Friday night

12. Washington State (2-1)

Wazzu fell behind early to Wyoming, but pulled away for a 17 point win. They're off this week.
