Oregon Ducks: Oregon is rolling toward a potential top seed overall. The Ducks have won 10 of 11 and have built a lead in the Pac-12 overall. The last big stumbling block is the Bay Area road trip before three winnable home games.
Arizona Wildcats: Arizona is handling the worst teams in the conference but is struggling against the best ones. A good chance to build up their resume comes up in their upcoming home meetups with Washington and Washington State.
USC Trojans: USC is the surprise of the Pac-12! The Trojans are 6-0 in Los Angeles and swept UCLA. That's the good news for USC. The bad news is four of their next six are on the road, where they are 1-3 in the Pac-12 and 3-5 including neutral games.
Utah is also receiving votes overall, although losing to Oregon reduced their chances of returning to the top 25 for a few more weeks.
