Academics matter!

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Let's take a look at Pac-12 multiyear and single year APR scores (you can search for all APR score data here).

1) Stanford Cardinal, 987: The Cardinal remain steadily firm at the top of the Pac-12 with an outstanding APR score (single-year APR in 2013-14 of 989). Don't expect much change from the scholar athletes of the conference.

2) Washington Huskies, 977: The Huskies have maintained solid academic balance and remained near the top of the conference.

3) UCLA Bruins, 975: UCLA's APR has dipped down to a slightly down 958, but it's no cause for alarm after a strong few years.

4) Utah Utes, 973: Utah posted the second highest single-season APR of 981. All's steady on the academic front.

5) Oregon Ducks, 967: Oregon remains steady middle of the pack (969 single-season).

6) Arizona Wildcats, 961: Rich Rodriguez had a bit of a worrisome 943 APR, but the academic profile still remains in a solid place.

7) Colorado Buffaloes, 957: The Buffs at 966 for the year are at least rebuilding their academic profile.

8) Washington St. Cougars, 951: While Washington State is near the bottom in multi-year APR, Mike Leach seems to be paying in dividends with a single-year APR of 973. Expect greater improvement down the line.

9) Arizona St. Sun Devils, 949: ASU's academic scores are steadily rising under Todd Graham, posting a 2013-14 score of 964.

10) USC Trojans, 948: USC's single year of 963 is pretty solid, but they have to cancel out some lean academic years.

11) Oregon St. Beavers, 946: Oregon State (949 single season APR) has a lot of work to do academically to stand up to par with the remainder of the conference.

12) California Golden Bears, 941: Still much improvement to be done here for Cal, with a single season APR of 946 posted.
