    Let me get this right! So Utah loses by 2 at Washington early in the PAC 12 season and then defeats Washington (78-69) in the return match. Utah had defeated Oregon State 80-69 in their only meeting this year. All teams have the same conference record (5-6) and yet you have Utah at 9th and Oregon State at 7th in your “Power Rank.” Perhaps you should watch some games in the PAC 12…

      Because we disagree on the 7th and 9th best teams in the Pac-12 doesn’t mean I don’t watch Pac-12 games? Utah also is horrible on the road and lost to Washington State. We can look at strength of wins, but ignoring bad losses isn’t wise. At the time this was published OSU has just beat UCLA and took ASU to OT. Those are the 2nd and 3rd best teams in the conference.
