There was a storm that moved through the entire Pacific coast, and its effects were felt far and wide with some tumultuous conditions that made it a defensive heaven and an offensive nightmare.

Still, some teams impressed while others certainly did not in Week 5.

Oregon State (5-0, 2-0) 36, Colorado (2-2, 0-1) 28

The full recap can be found on PacificTakes — right here.

Herbstreit Pick: Oregon State (W)

No. 22 Arizona State (4-0, 2-0) 17, USC (2-2, 1-1) 3

The Trojans offense was stymied all game long in the wet weather, unable to get the ball to their playmakers on the outside or over the middle. It wasn’t because they didn’t try, either. Arizona State’s defense clamped down when necessary and despite their ugly offensive output, did just enough to stay undefeated and grab their second conference win.

Herbstreit Pick: Arizona State (W)

No. 19 Washington State (4-1, 1-1) 7, Stanford (2-2, 0-2) 3

In what is perhaps the biggest shocker of the weekend, the Washington State Cougars put up just seven points. Yeah, that’s right, seven points. Stanford did everything they could in the rain to stop the high-flying attack of the Cougars but their own offense was thwarted by the weather as well. Washington State hands the Cardinal their second conference loss, early in 2019.

Herbstreit Pick: Washington State (W)

No. 12 Washington (4-0, 1-0) 40, Arizona (2-2, 0-1) 37

The only real offensive slugfest of the weekend came down to the final minutes as the Huskies needed a Salvon Ahmed TD run with 3:33 left, a defensive stop and a game-winning field goal by Peyton Henry as time expired to defeat the Wildcats in regulation. This one was as exciting as it was sloppy but Washington maintains their undefeated record for the year.

Herbstreit Pick: Washington (W)

No. 9 Oregon (4-0, 1-0) 31, Cal (2-2, 0-1) 21

The Ducks got the job done, despite heading to halftime trailing for the first time this season. Oregon spotted Cal a 14-10 halftime lead but shut the door in the second half until a garbage time touchdown pushed it to 31-21. Justin Herbert was near-flawless except for one errant throw that was intercepted while the Ducks defense really shut down what Cal does well offensively, forcing Chase Garbers to throw it 33 times, to not much success.

Passing: Justin Herbert, 23-27, 314 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT, 3 sack
Rushing: CJ Verdell, 25 carries, 135 yards, 2 TD
