Pac 12 Power Rankings Week 3
Posted Sep 16, 2012
An upset at the top of the rankings shakes things up in the Pac 12
4 first place votes
The Ducks kept their foot on the pedal against another overmatched opponent in Tennessee Tech. They'll get their first minor test this weekend at home against
The Cardinal just might be alright without Andrew Luck. They upset
on the Farm and get a week off before taking on
The Bruins defense was the story against Houston forcing 6 turnovers and allowing only a mop-up time touchdown. The offense 'struggled,' but still went well over 500 yards in the 30 point win. They'll host
4. USC (2-1, 0-1)
The Trojans fell in Palo Alto, derailing National Title and Heisman hopes for Matt Barkley. I said it before the season; the running game will lose a contest or two for the Trojans. The offensive line was also abysmal. USC hosts Cal this week.
5. Arizona (3-0, 0-0)
The Wildcats keep on rolling after shutting out South Carolina State. Matt Scott has looked like the best QB in the conference this year. Now they'll really be tested when they head to Eugene to take on Oregon.
The Sun Devils dropped a tough one at Missouri against a solid Tiger squad. They'll head back home to take on
on Saturday night.
7. Utah (2-1, 0-0)
In one of the most bizarre endings ever in college football history, Utah escaped a
comeback on a last second field goal that hit the upright. The Utes were better this week and the defense looked amazing again. They'll travel South to Tempe to take on a Sun Devils team that is better than expected.
8. Washington (2-1, 0-0)
Washington routed Portland State, getting back to their winning ways after getting pasted by LSU. The Huskies have a bye this week before taking on Stanford next Thursday at home.
9. Oregon State (1-0, 0-0)
The Beavers had the week off and will head to Pasadena this week to take on a ranked UCLA team that is rolling right now.
10. Cal (1-2, 0-0)
The Bears played Ohio State tough at the Horseshoe, but some curious decisions by Jeff Tedford ultimately did them in. They'll try to get back on track at USC this week.
The Cougs got all they could handle from UNLV on Friday night, but escaped with the win to get over .500 on the year. They'll take on
at home this weekend.
50. Colorado (0-3, 0-0)
This could be the worst BCS team in the BCS era. They were losing 55-7 to Fresno State a halftime. It'll be a surprise if the Buffs win a game this year. They'll travel to Wazzu this weekend in a battle of bottom of the barrel Pac 12 teams.
