It wasn't a good week for the Pac-12 and it may take a while to recover from the stench left behind. Yes, the Pac-12 was 8-4 on the weekend, but that's about where the good news ends. The weekend featured no "marquee" wins, with plenty of teams struggling with inferior opponents along the way. And the one team that had a chance to make a statement, the Oregon Ducks, fell to LSU on the road at Cowboys Stadium.
The Ducks fell all the way out of the top-10, sliding from their perch within the top-five with a loss to LSU. Stanford, however, remains in the top-10, and is just on the outside of the top-5 at No. 6. USC, who came into the first week of action ranked 25th, fell out of the polls. Voters were not, apparently, impressed with a two-point win over Minnesota.
