Worst losses of the 2013 Pac-12 football season by team

Stanford, Arizona State, and Washington handed out their share of beatings last year.

Steve Dykes

Arizona: Lost to Arizona State 58-21.
Rich Rodriguez seems to have the Arizona Wildcats moving in the right direction, but he has yet to beat Todd Graham in the Pac-12. Arizona was whipped up and down by an ASU team fighting for Pac-12 championship home field advantage, and the Wildcats will have to work hard.

Arizona State: Lost to Stanford 38-14. The Sun Devils built up all season for this moment, and proceeded to get trashed for sixty minutes and bungle every opportunity they had at victory.

Cal: Lost to Stanford 63-13. A season full of terrible losses culminated with perhaps the worst Big Game loss ever. The Bears were overwhelmed on both sides of the football, and there was no mercy from their traditional rivals.

Colorado: Lost to Washington 59-7. The Buffs had their fair share of losing this season, but they were far more competitive than in previous years. One of the few exceptions was the Washington Huskies, who just rolled them over the entire game.

Oregon: Lost to Arizona 42-16. The most unexpected defeat on this list. Oregon just didn't seem to want to be there, and the Wildcats were happy to seize the opportunity.

Oregon State: Lost to Washington 69-27. This was mildly unpleasant to watch. The Huskies poured it on early and didn't look back, putting up a dominating first half performance in Corvallis.

Stanford: Lost to Utah 27-21. Raise your hand if you had Kyle Whittingham's Utes as the Cardinal killers for the year.

Hands up?

UCLA: Lost to Oregon 42-14. The Bruins had so many chances to upset the Ducks, but couldn't convert on any of their opportunities. UCLA eventually self-destructed at the end, with Oregon rolling off a bunch of touchdowns real quick.

USC: Lost to Arizona State 62-41. The last gasp of the Lane Kiffin era. USC's defense was one of the best in the country in October and November. It gave up 62 points to Arizona State before that!

Utah: Lost to USC 19-3. The Utes had some pretty weak offensive performances. Here they had a winnable game against the Trojans, but could not go anything going.

Washington: Lost to Arizona State 53-24. The Huskies always had one quizzical loss every season, and in this one the Sun Devils pitchforked all over Washington's defense.

Washington State: Lost to Oregon State 52-24. The Cougars had no answer for the aerial assault of the Beavers, and were quickly overrun in a passing show by both teams.
