Pac 12 Football Teams Power Rankings
Here is how the Pac 12 Teams rank after the 1st week of football. If you were able to see the games on cable, you got a view almost all of the games. If you were on Direct TV or the Dish you couldn’t see the Pac 12 Network. To bad. You would have been able to the the “power teams” with expected wins and also rans who were upset in the first week of football.
1. USC: Trojans did what they needed to, but need to get better on third down.
2. Oregon: Ducks won’t likely drop off much, especially with their cupcake schedule.
3. Utah: Many think the Utes might give USC a run in Salt Lake City.
4. Arizona State: Sun Devils got off to a great start under new coach Todd Graham. Tougher tests the next two weeks.
5. UCLA: Bruins won on the road, and that is no easy task with a first-year coach.
6. Washington: Huskies looked like world-beaters in the first quarter, then looked horrible after. Good thing the defense made the plays in the second half (yes, the defense).
7: Stanford: The Cardinal looked like a shell of themselves. They might miss that Andrew Luck guy a little.
9. Arizona: The Wildcats won, but needed OT at home against Toledo. Need to step it up this week against Oklahoma State (see 84-0 win over Savannah State).
9. Oregon State: The Beavers didn’t play but they still looked better than the three teams that lost. Hard to rank them ahead of those who played and won.
10. California: Jeff Tedford is officially on the hot seat in my book. Bears fell behind early, rallied to tie, then gave up late TD.
11. Colorado: The Buffaloes scored a couple touchdowns so they get the 11th spot.
12: Washington State: I know my boss’s daughter goes to school here, and I know I grew up a Huskies fan, but if you manage just two field goals, you get the cellar in the first week.
