This week in Pac-12 football was fairly uneventful. The two of the three AP ranked teams won and the third didn't play. At the top was the Stanford Cardinal (6) who easily took care of the UCLA Bruins, 45-19 but fell to the seven spot thanks mostly to Wisconsin's big win over Nebraska. Andrew Luck continued his brilliance with three touchdowns and a 193 passer rating with an incredible 85 percent (23-27) completion percentage.
The Oregon Ducks (9) had the weekend off ahead of their Thursday game at Cal. They remain ranked ninth.
At home, the ASU Sun Devils got the win over the Oregon St. Beavers but were far from impressive in doing so. Brock Osweiler threw the ball away three times and was sacked four times but he also threw for two touchdowns and went 24-37. Most importantly, the Devils took control of the game and got the win, 35-10.
The Sun Devils were 25th going into the game and emerge 22nd thanks to the win.
USC fell out of the top 25 ranking last week after they were beat by ASU. They showed their defensive weakness by giving up a ton of points to the Arizona Wildcats in a shootout win (48-41). The biggest surprise was the Pac-12 South contender Utah losing to Washington and falling to 0-2 in the conference.
The USA Today's Coaches Poll has Stanford (4), Oregon (9) and Arizona State (24).
