This week went pretty much as expected for most of the teams. Le'ts take a look around the conference and see what happened this weekend.
Oregon 43 - ASU 21
Oregon whipped ASU 43-7 in the first half and then slept through the second on the way to victory. The defense shined and the offensive line gelled. It was a very good night for the Ducks.
Stanford 21 - Cal 3
This isn't the Stanford that Andrew Luck led and there were some questions about the seeming inability to play on the road. Stanford wasn't amazing, and both teams scoring 0 points all second half provided for one of the most boring 30 minutes of college football I have seen in a long time. But Stanford gets the W.
USC 50 - Colorado 6
Barkley & Co. got some of their rhythm back against the always struggling Buffs. It doesn't get easier for Colorado as they have to travel to Autzen Stadium to face the Ducks next week.
Oregon State 21 - Utah 7
Sometimes the Beavers look unstoppable. Sometimes they look overwhelmingly mediocre. It doesn't matter because they keep getting those W's. I believe the Beavs are actually the saving grace for Oregon's BCS title hopes this year, more on that to come.
Arizona 52 - Washington 17
This was the surprise of the weekend. While many people thought Arizona could win this game, I don't think ANYONE predicted it to be such a slaughter house. The Huskies had just finished a stretch of three highly ranked teams in a row and had come out 1-2. This gave hope that they could blitz through the second half of their schedule with ease and end about 9-3. Now they will be playing to make it into a bowl game at all. The schedule looks easy enough towards the end, but never try to guess what might happen in Pullman in late November.
