College Football power rankings: Pac-12 Week 12

  1. Oregon Ducks: After a week away–and a Stanford loss–the Ducks are back on top out west. They came in at number five in the latest BCS poll, so the hope is still there.
  2. Arizona State Sun Devils: Todd Graham’s team looked good once again in the victory over Oregon State. Still, I believe, this is the best team in the South at the moment. We’ll find out when they take on UCLA this week.
  3. Stanford Cardinal: After dropping their second one of the year to an emotionally-charged USC team, the Cardinal have a lot of aggression to take out against Cal.
  4. UCLA Bruins: The Bruins handled Washington easily, now they’ll see if they can slow down the red hot Arizona State Sun Devils for supremacy in the South Division.
  5. USC Trojans: There’s not enough great things you can say about Ed Orgeron and what he’s done with this program this year. The win over Stanford was just the icing on the cake.
  6. Washington Huskies: While it wasn’t enough, they out on a decent showing against UCLA for a bit. They’ll have a good chance for a seventh win this week over Oregon State.
  7. Oregon State Beavers: After suffering their fourth loss of the year against Arizona State, it’s time to begin to pick up the pieces, starting with Washington this week.
  8. Arizona Wildcats: The loss against Washington State had to be a tough pill to swallow for this team.
  9. Washington State Cougars: A win over Utah this week puts Mike Leach and the Cougs in a bowl game.
  10. Utah Utes: They put up somewhat of a fight against Oregon, but it wasn’t enough. Win number five could come this week vs. Wazzu, depending on which Wazzu shows up.
  11. Colorado Buffaloes: In the battle of the conference bottom-dwellers for 2013, the Buffs came out on top.
  12. Cal Golden Bears: See above.
