The Pac-12 has star power and several teams that are competing for a berth in the College Football Playoff, but anything can happen now in the Pac-12 race after Stanford and Utah lost this week. How do the teams stack up against each other after the first 11 weeks of the season? Here's our power rankings:
12) Oregon State Beavers
Oregon State only has one win over FBS-level team and have been blown out by Arizona, Washington State, Utah, and UCLA. Their loss against Colorado cemented their last place ranking.
11) Colorado Buffaloes
Colorado picked up a Pac-12 win, but it came against Oregon State and have been helpless in their other conference games. They nearly upset USC this weekend, but they won't get any higher than 11th without a win.
10) Washington Huskies
The Huskies upset USC and blew out Arizona, but they've lost four of their last five games to put them at No. 10. Washington will need to win their last two games to make a bowl game.
9) Cal Golden Bears
Cal has absolutely fallen off the map after a 5-0 start, losing four straight games and dropping to the bottom of the Pac-12, but finally cliched a bowl berth with a blowout win over Oregon State.
8) Arizona State Sun Devils
Arizona State picked up a much-needed win over Washington this weekend, pushing them to 5-5 on the season and 3-4 in the Pac-12.
7) Arizona Wildcats
Arizona has been hit hard by injuries, but still managed to clinch a bowl berth by upsetting #10 Utah in overtime at home. That win finally breathes some life into their season.
6) UCLA Bruins
UCLA continues to be inconsistent in big games this season after they lost to Washington State at home this weekend.
5) USC Trojans
This USC team has been maddeningly inconsistent and I have no idea what to make of them. The Trojans do appear to have straightened things out and have won three games in a row, but we'll know if they're for real at the end of the month when they take on Oregon and UCLA.
4) Oregon Ducks
Where has this Oregon team been all season? A healthy Vernon Adams Jr. has led the Ducks to four straight wins, including a convincing upset at Stanford on Sautrday. Suddenly, Oregon is a very, very dangerous team.
3) Washington State Cougars
The Cougars have been THE surprise team in the conference this season, moving to 7-3 this season (and 5-2 in conference) with a clutch road victory over UCLA this weekend. If Stanford loses to Cal this weekend, Washington State could play in the Pac-12 title game.
2) Utah Utes
Utah dropped from the top ten in a close loss on the road to Arizona in overtime, and while it ended their College Football Playoff hopes, they're still in good position in the Pac-12 South.
1) Stanford Cardinal
Despite the loss to Oregon, Stanford will still clinch the Pac-12 North this weekend if they beat in-state rival Cal, putting them in position for a Rose Bowl appearance.Back to the Pac-12 Newsfeed
