1. Washington Huskies (5-0)
The Huskie Hype Highway hasn’t been this hype in a very long time. A statement win against Stanford has propelled Washington to the top of Pac-12 and into the playoff Conversation.
2. Stanford Cardinal (3-1)
The Cardinal faltered in their biggest challenge of the season and has put them behind the competition in the North Division. Their playoff hopes will hinge on Washington’s performance going forward.
3. Utah Utes (4-1)
The upset bug finally hit the Utes against a stingy Cal team that is always looking for the upset. This loss was a big setback for the Utes but hold their destiny in their hands as they’re still tied for first in the South division.
4. UCLA Bruins (3-2)
The people are still high on the Bruins. Their two losses were against top teams in the nation and they have a key South division matchup against a hungry Arizona State team.
5. Colorado Buffalos (4-1)
Ralphie and company have shocked the entire Pac-12 by starting 4-1 and seem to be a treat to UCLA and Utah in the South division.
6. Cal Bears (3-2)
They’ve done it again. The Cal Bears continue to pull off upsets as they beat previously undefeated Utah. Davis Webb and the gang have a seemingly easy matchup against bottom feeder Oregon State.
7. Arizona State Sun Devils (4-1)
The doubters were proved to be right as the Sun Devils were absolutely demolished by an underwhelming USC team. Arizona State will have another chance to prove how good of a team they are as they play an important Southern division game against UCLA.
8. USC Trojans (2-3)
USC’s nightmare season took an upswing as they walked all over Arizona State for their second win of the season. The Trojans will have a chance to keep salvaging their season as they host a ranked Colorado team.
9. Washington State (2-2)
In what may have been the second most impressive performance of the week, Washington State embarrassed an Oregon team that has been trending downward.
10. Arizona Wildcats (2-3)
Why is no one talking about Rich Rodriguez’s job security? Arizona took a double digit defeat at the hands of UCLA and they have another tough game against No. 24 Utah.
11. Oregon Ducks (2-3)
Remember when it was Oregon’s conference to lose? So do I; a loss to Washington State has everyone in an uproar and things aren’t going to get any better as they will host No. 5 Washington.
12. Oregon State Beavers (1-3)
Poor, poor Beavers. Only producing six points against Colorado was extremely disappointing. The only thing that was more disappointing was giving up 47 points. Tough times ahead for the Beavers.
