The Pac-12 Power Rankings After Week Eight

This last week in the Pac-12 was pretty much mundane and, for the most part, predictable. Unfortunately I am starting to get the feeling that we are getting to the point where there isn’t going to be too much movement in the power rankings. It’s going to be a long hall from here to the end ...
