Pac-12 Power Rankings: Week 13

New, comments

There is a new leader in the Pac-12 clubhouse after Stanford's upset victory over Oregon in Autzen Stadium last Saturday night.

The Stanford Cardinal have unseated the Oregon Ducks for the top spot in the Pac-12 Power Rankings. This week, they face South Division Champ, UCLA, in what could be a preview of the Pac-12 Championship Game.

The Bruins jump Oregon as they continue to accelerate towards the post-season and look to be improving every week as the season comes to a close.

Oregon still has a chance at the North Division title if Stanford falls to UCLA, and the Ducks beat Oregon State in Corvallis.

Arizona came away with a tough road victory at Utah, and jumps up to number five, just ahead of USC. The Trojans come next at six, after a physical loss that cost them any shot at the Rose Bowl and knocked out NFL-bound quarterback Matt Barkley.

Washington won big at Colorado, but still comes in behind the Trojans due to the head-to-head loss earlier this season in Seattle.

Arizona State stomped Washington State, but five losses are five losses, and they still sit behind the Huskies. Cal, Colorado and Washington State round out the bottom of the Pac-12 barrel.
