Ranking the Pac --- Week 10 - Seattle Times:

Here they are. ...

1, Stanford --- Stanford (now 9-0, 7-0) preps for what is now the biggest game in Pac-12 history. The Cardinal has also won an astonishing 17 games in a row. Its 2006 season, when some were writing the Cardinal was maybe the worst in conference history, really isn't that long ago, which leads one to wonder if there has ever been a program in the history of the conference to go from that bad to that good (and good for a sustained period of time) so quickly.

2, Oregon --- The Ducks (8-1, 6-0) didn't have to work quite as hard as some thought to get past the Huskies and set up the likely all-or-nothing clash with the Cardinal for the Pac-12 North title. And worth noting one more time --- Oregon's not going anywhere anytime soon. Oregon had 10 seniors on the two-deep for Saturday's game with UW, only one more than Washington.

3, USC --- The Trojans (7-2, 4-2) are a similarly young team, though they'll probably be starting over at QB next year. Still, the rumors of USC's demise so far seem unfounded. Trojans could easily finish 9-3, which given everything would seem more than good enough...
