Oregon's thrashing of Arizona and Oregon State's upset of UCLA have the Ducks and Beavers tied with Stanford atop the Pac-12 North.
The Oregon Ducks picked up their first Pac-12 win of the season on Saturday, a 49-0 throttling of the Arizona Wildcats. While Oregon moving to 1-0 in conference play wasn't much of a surprise, that their chief rivals joined the Ducks in the winners column was.
Oregon State pulled off the shocker at No. 19 UCLA. The Beavers moved to 2-0 on the season with two upset wins against ranked opponents.
Washington is the only Pac-12 team that hasn't played a conference game. The Huskies were off on Saturday and open up conference play against No. 8 Stanford in Week 5. Washington State suffered a stunning 35-34 loss to previously winless Colorado.
In the South, USC moved to 1-1 in Pac-12 play with a 27-9 win over California. The Trojans are a half game behind Arizona State and Colorado, who are 1-0 in the conference.
