Pac-12 Power Rankings: Week 12

This happened often Saturday. Again. - Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

Oregon remains at the top of the Pac-12 Power Rankings after dismantling Cal in the 2nd half Saturday night. Arizona jumps back up into the top-six after Ka'Deem Carey ran all over Colorado in Tucson Saturday morning.

The Oregon Ducks face off with Stanford Saturday with the lead in the North Division on the line. The Ducks cruised to an easy victory with a huge 2nd half Saturday night against Cal, and Stanford won a physical battle over Oregon State. The loss for the Beavers puts them on the outside looking in for the Pac-12 title game, with two conference losses.

USC beat Arizona State relatively handily, and despite one more loss than UCLA in conference, still control their own destiny to the title game if they beat the Bruins Saturday.

Arizona and Washington both earned bowl-eligibility Saturday; an important milestone for fans of both programs, who are looking to move into the upper tier of the conference.

Arizona State and Utah both lost Saturday, but will both be bowl eligible if they win out. The New Mexico Bowl may have several 6-6 Pac-12 teams to select from.

Cal showed some fight in the 1st half against Oregon, but the tempo and talent won out in the 2nd half, and the Golden Bears dropped their eighth game of 2012.

Washington State and Colorado cannot finish the season quickly enough.
