Another weekend of big games brings out a lot of movement in the Pac 12 Power Rankings

It's top heavy with North teams as the power rankings near the end of the season

1) Stanford (9-2, 8-1)

The Big Game goes to Stanford as they hold off Cal. A blowout of Notre Dame is a must if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive.

2) Oregon (8-3, 6-2)

The Ducks are the hottest team in the Pac 12 after taking down USC with ease. They'll roll through OSU this weekend.

3) Washington State (8-3, 6-2)

Another week and another win for the Cougs, this time with defense over Colorado. Wazzu will try to get to win number 9 on Saturday against Washington.

4) UCLA (8-3, 5-3)

The Bruins got the ugly win with a roadie in Salt Lake City. They'll face USC for all the marbles in the South.

5) USC (7-4, 5-3)

The Trojans came back top Earth in Autzen, getting trounced by the Ducks. It's a Pac 12 South title matchup with UCLA on Saturday coming up.

6) Utah (8-3. 5-3)

Utah's South hopes were dashed when the offense generated only 9 points against UCLA. They'll have a dicey one this weekend as Colorado always plays them tough.

7) Arizona State (6-5, 4-4)

The Sun Devils are going bowling following a win over Arizona. A win over Cal this weekend can boost their bowl profile.

8) Cal (6-5, 3-5)

The Bears hung with Stanford for awhile, but couldn't slow Christian McCaffrey in a loss. They'll close out with Arizona State.

9) Washington (5-6, 3-5)

The Huskies put a beating on Oregon State and are now one win from bowl elgibility. Will need to beat a hot Wazzu team to get there.

10) Arizona (6-6, 3-6)

A disappointing season for Arizona ends with a loss to ASU. Will it be RichRod's last game coachin in Tucson?

11) Colorado (4-8, 1-7)

Colorado coultn't generate any offense in a loss to Washington State. They'll hit the road to take on their rivals in Salt Lake City.

12) Oregon State (2-9, 0-8)

It's almost over, Beavers. It's almost over after Washington beat them bloody. The Civil War with Oregon is next.
