The landscape of college football went relatively unchanged after week ten. For the Pac-12, the week was full of predictability, as there weren’t any upsets; there also weren’t too many close games to speak of. In other words it was a pretty boring weekend for those — meaning me — who liked the chaos of the previous week. Now, let’s get to the power rankings for the Pac-12.
Oregon Ducks: Oregon regained its title of the great spread coverers; the Duck’s 28 point victory over the Bruins was impressive.
- Stanford Cardinal: Stanford survived its trip to Corvallis. David Shaw’s late game management remains as questionable as ever, but not nearly as bad as Mike Riley’s was.
- Arizona State Sun Devils: ASU got the week off, and ya.
- UCLA Bruins: The Bruins were out matched in Eugene. That being said, most teams that head into Eugene are outclassed.
- Washington Huskies: Washington stomped on Cal at Husky Stadium. The Huskies homecoming game was about as anticlimactic as can be; although they did have a nice tribute to legendary head coach Don James.
- Oregon State Beavers: The Beavers were hoping to cement their place in the top-25. Instead Mike Riley happened, than crazy stuff happened, and then Sean Mannion threw an interception.
- USC Trojans: The Trojan offense struggled — again — but the Utes offense struggled worse.
- Utah Utes: Somehow the Utes managed to out derp the Trojans. As a result they lost 3-19.
- Arizona Wildcats: The Wildcats throttled Colorado.
- Washington State Cougars: The Cougs were on the bye.
- Colorado Buffaloes: Colorado fell to 3-4 (0-4) on the season with its loss to Arizona. It is going to take time in Boulder.
- California Golden Bears: Cal got obliterated by Washington in Seattle. The Golden Bears are left wondering how they have fallen so far.
