Any hope of a playoff for the Huskies is probably gone as Auburn has now lost 3 games, much reducing the strength of schedule argument.
And Colorado loses to USC. The Ducks look like the Pac 12's best chance for the playoff and there's a chance they may not even make the conference championship game. Plus, they go on the road to Wazzu next weekend. Good news: after Wazzu, I don't think Oregon has another potential loss on their schedule as they've gotten all the hard teams out of the way, so if they can navigate the Paloose and get out of there alive they should be 11-1 in the regular season. Bad news: The conferences playoffs hopes could officially be kaput by this time a week from today, and if Stanford can somehow beat Washington at Husky Stadium, the Ducks likely aren't even playing in the conference title game, and if the Playoff committee isn't taking the conference winner they certainly aren't taking a team that didn't even play for the conference championship.

Wow, Oregon laying a big fat egg tonight in Pullman. 27-0 Cougs at the half! Ducks are way over-rated and not prepared to win much of anything, let alone the Pac12 North title. Barring an incredible comeback from the Duckies, Washington will be in control of their destiny.

So, with a 2nd Pac12 loss for Oregon it puts Washington back in the drivers seat. If they win out they will win the Pac-12 north.

It's a 3-way split at the moment: UW-Stanford-WSU. I'm looking forward to seeing how WSU does at Stanford.

A lot can happen the next several weeks.

Stanford

WSU
@ WA
OSU
@ CAL
@ UCLA

Washington State

@ Stanford
CAL
@ Colorado
Arizona
Washington

Washington

@ CAL
Stanford
OSU
@ WSU

Note: Washington has 4 games left, WSU and Stanford still have 5! Could be meaningful, or not.

All three can control their own destiny by winning out. So the question is who is more likely to do this? I still say WA is in the drivers seat, with fewer games left, and a good record in Pullman. . But WSU can also do the same, but less likely IMO. Stanford vs WSU will be very important indeed.

WSU looks to have the more difficult path to the Pac-12 championship. There's a decent chance they'll lose at least one of those remaining games, especially since they're now a target as a high ranked team. Meanwhile, Washington has fewer games, but they also get a week long bye to get healthier.

Pac12 North all shook up tonight!

California upsets Washington
Washington State beats Stanford
Arizona upsets Oregon (not over, but it is)

So now we have a Pac12 north that looks like this:

Washington State 4-1
Washington 4-2
Stanford 3-2
Oregon 2-3

Oregon is now, or will be shortly eliminated. Washington State will win the North title if they win out. Stanford will need a lot of help. Washington could still get it if they win out. Drama!

(sidebar: What was with Husky coach Chris Peterson benching Jake Browning tonight? Suspect move and probably cost them the game!)

The two Pac-12 Arizona teams came alive yesterday:

ASU took down USC at the Coliseum, 38-35, and UA Wildcats woke up from zombie-land and rolled over Oregon, 44-10.

Pac-12 South currently:

Utah - 4-2
USC - 3-3
Arizona - 3-3
Colorado - 2-3
ASU - 2-3
UCLA - 2-3

Looking like Utah has the best shot at the South title at the moment.
