Updated Pac-12 Power Rankings
1. Oregon (3-0, 0-0 Pac-12; LW: No. 2) -- Chip Kelly's offense has yet to be challenged and it likely won't again against Arizona. However, his defense will be facing a high-powered scoring offense. Next up: vs. Arizona, Saturday, 10:30 p.m. ET (ESPN).
2. USC (2-1, 0-1; LW: No. 1) -- I know, I know. Stanford beat USC last week, so why are the Trojans ahead in the rankings? It may be an ill-advised observation, but I think Matt Barkley wins that game nine times out of 10, and now there's no pressure to win. They can just play their game. Next up: vs. Cal, Saturday, 6 p.m. ET (Pac-12 Network).
3. Stanford (3-0, 1-0: LW: No. 3) -- I fear for the Cardinal making the trip to Washington in two weeks. Coming off this huge win, I wouldn't be surprised to see a blip. Let's see how they respond. Next up: BYE
4. UCLA (3-0, 0-0; LW: No. 4) -- The Bruins will put their 3-0 record to the test against a feisty Oregon State squad that beat Wisconsin not too long ago. Next up: vs. Oregon State, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (ABC West Coast).
5. Arizona (3-0, 0-0; LW: No. 5) -- RichRod has gotten off to a better start with Wildcat fans than he did in Ann Arbor. Can he revive the program in just one year with a colossal upset over Oregon? Next up: at Oregon, Saturday, 10:30 p.m. ET (ESPN).
6. Utah (2-1, 0-0; LW: No. 6) -- A bounce back win over BYU after faltering against Utah State was huge for the Utes. Just ask the crowd, which stormed the field three times. Next up: at Arizona State, Saturday, 10 p.m. ET (Pac-12 Network).
7. Washington (2-1, 0-0; LW: No. 9) -- Yeah, they smacked around by LSU in Week 2. But so would most of the teams in the Pac. The Huskies rebounded well against FCS Portland State and I like their chances at home vs. Stanford here soon. Next up: BYE
8. Oregon State (1-0, 0-0; LW: No. 8) -- The Beavers have only played one game. That one game was a three-point win over Wisconsin, but the Badgers haven't proved to be very good. Next up: at UCLA, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (ABC West Coast).
9. Cal (1-2, 0-0; LW: No. 10) -- Cal may have lost to the Buckeyes, but it still moves up in the conference rankings. The Bears' offense was very potent and Zach Maynard may finally be coming around. Next up: at USC, Saturday, 6 p.m. ET (Pac-12 Network).
10. Arizona State (2-1, 0-0; LW: No. 7) -- The Sun Devils failed to beat a Missouri team without its starting quarterback. Next up: vs. Utah, Saturday, 10 p.m. ET (Pac-12 Network).
11. Washington State (2-1, 0-0; LW: No. 11) -- Wazzou allowed UNLV to score 20 first-half points, which was the Rebels' first time doing so since November of 2010. Next up: vs. Colorado, 4 p.m. ET (Fox).
12. Colorado (0-3, 0-0; LW: No. 12) -- Colorado may be the worst team in the FBS. It allowed 55 first-half points and 516 first-half yards to Fresno State in last week's 69-14 loss. Next up: at Washington State, 4 p.m. ET (Fox).
