1. Stanford (9-0, 7-0)

Last week: Defeated Oregon State 38-13

This week: Home against Oregon, 6 p.m. MT, ABC

Note: The Cardinal have a chance to show they are for real in the Pac-12's game of the year and get a step closer to the national championship game.

2. Oregon (8-1, 6-0)

Last week: Defeated Washington 34-17

This week: At Stanford, 6 p.m. MT, ABC

Note: It's been an uphill climb for the Ducks since losing the opener to LSU, but they can virtually clinch a spot in the first-ever Pac-12 title game with a win Saturday.

3. USC (7-2, 4-2)

Last week: Defeated Colorado 42-17

This week: Home against Washington, 1:45 p.m. MT, FX

4. Washington (6-3, 4-2)

Last week: Lost to Oregon 34-17

This week: At USC, 1:45 p.m. MT, FX

Note: After losing to the Pac-12's two best teams, the Huskies can prove they are the third-best team in the league with a win this week.

5. UCLA (5-4, 4-2)

Last week: Defeated Arizona State 29-28

This week: At Utah, 4:30 p.m. MT, KJZZ, Prime Ticket

6. Arizona State (6-3, 4-2)

Last week: Lost to UCLA 29-28

This week: At Washington State, 8:30 p.m. MT, Versus

7. Cal (5-4, 2-4)

Last week: Defeated Washington State 30-7

This week: Home against Oregon State, 4:30 p.m. MT, CSNBA

8. Utah (5-4, 2-4)

Last week: Defeated Arizona 34-21

This week: Home against UCLA, 4:30 p.m. MT, KJZZ, Prime Ticket

9. Arizona (2-7, 1-6)

Last week: Lost to Utah 34-21

This week: At Colorado, 12:30 p.m. MT, FCS Pacific

Note: After the big win over UCLA, the Wildcats have reverted back to their losing ways before Mike Stoops was fired.

10. Oregon State (2-7, 2-4)

Last week: Lost to Stanford 38-13

This week: At California, 4:30 p.m. MT, CSNBA

Note: The Beavers gave Stanford a game for a half, but they don't play as well away from Oregon.

11. Washington State (3-6, 1-6)

Last week: Lost to California 30-7

This week: Home against Arizona State, 8:30 p.m. MT, Versus

Note: After the strong start, the Cougars seem to get worse every week.

12. Colorado (1-9, 0-6)

Last week: Lost to USC 42-17

This week: Home against Arizona, 12:30 p.m. MT, FCS Pacific

Note: Is this the week the Buffaloes finally break through and win a Pac-12 game? They're running out of chances.
