Pac 12 Power Rankings Week 7

Posted Oct 21, 2012

Not many changes this week as Pac 12 play continues to roll on

1. Oregon (7-0, 4-0)
The Ducks rolled over Arizona State on Thursday night and now get conference bottom-feeder Colorado.

2. USC (6-1, 4-1)
The Trojans dismantled Colorado behind big days from Matt Barkley and Robert Woods. They'll take on Arizona in Tucson this weekend in what could be a tricky game for the men of Troy.

3. Oregon State (6-0, 4-0)
It wasn't pretty, but the Beavers knocked off Utah due to the play of the defense and 4 Ute turnovers to stay undefeated. It may be their toughest test of the season to date this weekend when they travel to Seattle to take on a Washington team that is much better at home.

4. Stanford (5-2, 3-1)
Stanford's defense came up big as the Cardinal shut down Cal. With Wazzu coming to town, they should become bowl eligible this week.

5. Arizona State (5-2, 3-1)
The Sun Devils were waxed by Oregon and now have some injuries at key spots. They'll get UCLA at home in a must win if they want to keep pace with USC in the Pac 12 South. 6. UCLA (5-2, 2-2)
The Bruins had a week off and now travel to Tempe to face Arizona State in an important game in the Pac 12 South race.

7. Arizona (4-3, 1-3)
Arizona played their game of the year with a pasting of Washington at home. They'll be a tough matchup for USC this weekend at home.

8. Washington (3-4, 1-3)
The Huskies continue their lowly play on the road by getting smoked by Arizona. Now it's a home date with top 10 ranked Oregon State.

9. Cal (3-5, 2-3)
Cal laid an egg in the Big Game against Stanford and now must likely win in Salt Lake City against Utah to keep their bowl hopes alive.

10. Utah (2-5, 0-4)
Utah couldn't generate enough points in Corvallis and fell to the Beavers to remain winless in conference play. They'll need to knock off Cal at home if they want any shot of going to a bowl this year.

11. Washington State (2-5, 0-4)
Mike Leach's team remained winless in Pac 12 play due to a bye, and will still likely be winless after traveling to Stanford this weekend.

12. Colorado (1-6, 1-3)
The ugly year in Boulder continued with a drubbing at the hands of USC. If the Buffs are able to stay within 60 of Oregon this weekend, consider it a win.
