1. No. 7 Stanford Cardinal (3-0) Conf: (1-0)
The Cardinal looked dominant against what remains left of the USC football program. Another game, another Stanford win with Christian McCaffrey running wild. But, one of the biggest conference games on Stanford schedule comes next week in the form the UCLA Bruins.
2. No. 9 Washington Huskies (3-0) Conf: (0-0)
Good news, beating a team 41-3 is always a boost in confidence. Bad news, it was against Portland State so, who cares?
3. No. 24 Utah Utes (3-0) Conf: (0-0)
Another slow start hurts Utah but eventually they were able to come away with another victory. What is even better than starting 3-0? Playing USC with a chance to go 4-0.
4. UCLA Bruins (2-1) Conf: (0-0)
Jim Inconsistency Mora does it again. The UCLA offense did exactly what it needed to do to get the road win against BYU but scoring 17 points won’t be enough against Stanford in the most important conference game in UCLA’s season.
5. Oregon Ducks (2-1) Conf: (0-0)
Oregon does what Oregon does best. Choke a big game away, the 35-32 loss to Nebraska was a backbreaker and the Ducks will look to bounce back against a tough Colorado team.
6. Colorado Buffaloes (2-1) Conf: (0-0)
Speaking of Colorado, they had a very impressive game against the old powerhouse Michigan. But the loss of starting quarterback, Sefo Liufau to a right ankle sprain will greatly impede their chances against the fast paced Oregon team.
7. Cal Bears (2-1) Conf: (0-0)
Bringing back the prestige to the Pac-12! Cal pulled off the improbable upset of Texas behind the arm of Davis Webb. If they play 10 times I don’t know how many times Cal wins but the entire conference thanks them.
8. USC Trojans (1-2) Conf: (0-1)
Player coaches fist fights, mass amounts of transfers, another big loss to Stanford, it has been a bad week at USC. Things won’t get better this weekend as they play No. 24 Utah. It isn’t a good time to be a Trojan.
9. Arizona State Sun Devils (3-0) Conf: (0-0)
Arizona State might have had the most underwhelming 3-0 start in the history of football. Almost losing on National TV to UTSA is embarrassing and obviously people have taken notice.
10. Arizona wildcats (2-1) Conf: (0-0)
A win is a win right? Beating Hawaii is always nice, I guess… Arizona will prove how good they really are as they play No. 9 Washington next.
11. Oregon State Beavers (1-1) Conf: (0-0)
Idaho State. Why? I couldn’t tell you why, I guess a win is a nice confidence boost for a bad team. But they play Boise State next, so it’s a battle of which Orange is better.
12. Washington State Cougars (1-2) Conf: (0-0)
Washington State showed how good they can be on the offensive side of the ball as they scored 56 points against Idaho. No one seems to be impressed though, for good reason.
