Pac 12 play is completed and now we move on to the conference championship

1. Stanford (10-2, 8-1)
The Cardinal dismantled UCLA and will now host the Bruins in the Pac 12 title matchup.

2. Oregon (11-1, 8-1)
The Ducks blew out Oregon State, but didn't get the help they needed from UCLA to get to the Pac 12 championship.

3. UCLA (9-3, 6-3)
The Bruins were beat up by Stanford, but will get a chance for revenge on Friday in the Pac 12 title game.

4. Oregon State (9-3, 6-3)
OSU hung with Oregon for a bit, but too many turnovers did them in. Regardless, a great season in Corvallis.

5. Arizona State (7-5, 5-4)
The late season collapse in Tempe was avoided as the Devils took down Arizona. This team could compete for the South title in 2013.

6. USC (7-5, 5-4)
The season was a disaster. USC started the year number 1 and finished unranked after 5 losses. Adding insult to injury, rival UCLA on the Pac 12 South, while other rival, Notre Dame, is in the BCS Championship Game.

7. Arizona (7-5, 4-5)
Arizona couldn't hold a fourth quarter lead and fell to rival ASU. Things could take a step back next season with Matt Scott leaving.

8. Washington (7-5, 5-4)
The Huskies blew a big lead and fell to Wazzu in overtime. Another weird loss by Sark and company.

9. Utah (5-7, 3-6)
Utah wasn't great, but snuck by Colorado to get to five wins. Next season is a big one in Salt Lake City.

10. Cal (3-9, 2-7)
The Bears' season finished up last week.

11. Washington State (3-9, 1-8)
The Cougars shocked Washington in overtime and picked up their first conference win of the season. Things need to be better next season or Mike Leach is going to find himself on the hot seat quickly.

12. Colorado (1-11, 1-8)
The Buffs closed out the worst season in program history with only one win after dropping a close one to Utah. Will Jon Embree be back?
