And here we are... when was the last time the Pac-12's top-ranked team was number 18? This is pretty sad for the conference as Stanford once against comes up short of their potential.
Ahh, the other Pac-12 Playoff hopeful. The Utes no longer control their own destiny in the South, but can still put together a great season and get to the Rose Bowl. This would still be a huge accomplishment considering their preseason expectations.
21. Florida State
22. Washington State
The Cougars proved that they are a legit Top 25 team by winning at UCLA. They can easily win their last two games against Colorado and Washington and sneak into the Top 10 heading into bowl season.
The Ducks might be the hottest team in the country as they have officially found themselves after beating Stanford. They still probably won't win the North, but they are the last team anyone in the Pac-12 wants to play right now.
24. Mississippi State
