The Arizona State Sun Devils (5-1) are still the cream of the Pac-12 South crop with an undefeated record (3-0) in conference play following their 51-17 Thursday night domination of the Colorado Buffaloes.
The only other three-win team in the South is the USC Trojans (5-1) but their lone loss on the season came in conference play against the Stanford Cardinal (2-2). The Devils will have a huge opportunity to send a message to the rest of the conference this Thursday as they take on the Oregon Ducks in Tempe in front of an ESPN crowd.
UCLA, Colorado, Arizona and Utah round out the rest of the Pac-12 South in that order. The Bruins had a nice rebound against the Utes this past weekened, winning 21-14 but they were the only one of those aforementioned teams to register to a win.
The Wildcats had a bye this past week but are still coming off three consecutive losses against ranked opponents.
