Arizona State the most dangerous Pac-12 South team for Oregon & Stanford?

The Sun Devils are looking mighty dangerous in the home stretch and could pose a threat to UCLA for the conference crown.

The Pac-12 South has plenty of solid teams. Which team should Stanford worry the most about out of the South? If Stanford loses, which team should Oregon worry about?

Chris Landon, UW Dawg Pound: To me, it looks pretty good that Stanford will be seeing ASU once again. In general, I don't like the odds of any team beating another twice in the same season. Of course, if Stanford doesn't win this week, they need not be concerned with a Sun Devil rematch. Thus, they should only be worried about USC.

Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: I would say Arizona State for both. The Sun Devils came out horribly against Stanford, but bounced back and showed that they could move the ball against the Cardinal and shut down their offense. For Oregon, the Sun Devils have the kind of ridiculously nasty front seven that seems to be the only thing that can stop Oregon along with the most-dynamic offense in the South.

Jason Bartel, Arizona Desert Swarm: Arizona State for both. Getting to see UCLA in person this week made me think less of them. They won that game because they used several defensive guys on offense, and the Arizona defense had no idea what to do. Arizona State is an all-around better team than UCLA.

Trevor Wong, Conquest Chronicles: It was very, very impressive because of how Stanford just flat out controlled the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. The Cardinal limited the Ducks to just 312 yards of total offense (62 rushing yards) and 20 points, far below their averages of 632 yards and nearly 56 points going into the game. On offense, they held the ball for 42:34 and rushed for 274 yards. The final score just doesn't really indicate how much Stanford really dominated Oregon.
