3 UCLA Bruins

Last Week: UCLA 20  Texas 17

A gutsy win on the road with their back-up quarterback.  The Texas Longhorns are still tough but a shadow of their former selves.  Would have liked to see UCLA take control of this game.  That said, the Bruins could have a special season brewing.

2 Stanford Cardinal

Last Week: Stanford 35  Army 0

Stanford took care of business at home against an inferior team.  Normally that’s not enough to earn you a bump in the power rankings but losses by USC and an unimpressive performance by UCLA make the Cardinal the second best team in the PAC-12 this week.

1  Oregon Ducks

Last Week: Oregon 48  Wyoming 14

The Cowboys scared Oregon…for the 1st quarter. After the Ducks got warmed up they destroyed the Wyoming Cowboys.  The Ducks are ranking #2 in the country for a reason.
