Whether you believe it or not, the Washington Huskies might have an opportunity to finish second in the North behind the Oregon Ducks if they can handle their business.
The Washington Huskies didn't move up at all in the Pac-12 North standings with their 21-13 win over Cal going to waste as the top three teams above them also were victorious.
With the win though, the Huskies move to 3-3 on the year in the conference and the team still has an outside chance of finishing second in the division.
The Huskies have a relatively easy schedule to finish out the year (Utah, @Colorado, @Washington State) while the two teams ahead of them will be challenged the rest of the year. Oregon State, who Washington has the tiebreaker over, still has to play No. 14 Stanford and No. 3 Oregon while the third-place Cardinal draw the Beavers, Ducks and UCLA Bruins.
As for the other school in Washington, the Cougars lost their sixth straight conference game Saturday as the Utah Utes rolled through the, 49-6. It's looking pretty bleak at this point too that Washington State will get any Pac-12 win at all with their remaining schedule featuring some unforgiving matchups (UCLA, @Arizona State, Washington).
Below are the complete Pac-12 standings:
