The Pac-12 North features three Top 25 college football teams.
Right now, there's no stopping the Oregon Ducks. Ranked No. 2 in the nation after dismantling previous No. 22 Arizona in Eugene last Saturday, the North Division-leading Ducks are 4-0 overall, 1-0 in conference play and seem to be able to overcome any kind of struggles at the start of games with their high-octane offense.
Oregon is in Seattle this weekend to play Washington State in a Cougars' home game that should draw thousands of Ducks fans coming north on Interstate 5 and plenty of Seattle-area based Cougar fans and others driving across Washington from east of the Cascades.
Arizona State, fresh off a pounding of Utah at home Saturday, tops the South at 3-1, 1-0.
No. 8 Stanford is 3-0 and plays at North Division rival Washington in Seattle on Thursday on ESPN. USC is 3-1 and ranked 13th, and Oregon State, with its upset win over UCLA, moved into the Top 25 at No. 18 though the Beavers (2-0) have played only two games.
