Stanford Cardinal: After just physically dominating Oregon, there’s no question that the Cardinal are the best team in the conference. The only question really is, how in the world did this team lose to Utah?
Oregon Ducks: They had their national title hopes all but dashed in the loss to Stanford, and now will have a chance to rebound against the team that gave the Cardinal their only loss, Utah.
Arizona State Sun Devils: It was a scary one, but Todd Graham and crew pulled out a 20-19 win over Utah. They’ll see if they can keep this recent hot streak going against a good Oregon State team on Saturday.
UCLA Bruins: The country was introduced to the dynamic freshman Myles Jack on Saturday. The Bruins will look to gain their eighth win of the year this week when they take on Washington.
Washington Huskies: The Huskies had an offensive exhibition against Colorado and next up is Brett Hundley and UCLA.
USC Trojans: After putting up 62 points on Cal, it’s now safe to say that these kids love playing for Coach Orgeron. If they can somehow upset Stanford this Saturday, it may be time to talk about calling off the coaching search.
Oregon State Beavers: After a bye week, Mike Riley and his team will see if they can cool off the red hot Arizona State team.
Arizona Wildcats: They almost pulled off a great comeback against UCLA, but fell just short. This week against Washington State will be a good opportunity to get their seventh win of the year.
Utah Utes: The Utes almost got their second impressive upset of the season against Arizona State, but fell just one point short. Now, they’ll travel to Autzen to see if they can recreate that magic from the Stanford game.
Washington State Cougars: After a week off, Mike Leach and his team will try to get to .500 on the year against Arizona.
Colorado Buffaloes: It wasn’t pretty against Washington, but they’ll have a great shot at getting their fourth win this week when they face the last team on the list….
Cal Golden Bears: They were torched by USC, but they have one week to get it all together to see if they can get their first conference on the year against Colorado.
