By the way, what quality teams outside of Oregon is in that league? They may be second best but overall it's a distant second.
PAC 12's Best Teams this Season:
1. Oregon: elite year in, year out
2. Stanford: Defending P12 Champs haven't missed a beat with Shaw
3. Arizona State: lots of talent for Todd Graham
4. USC: Sanctions depleted but still dangerous.
5. Oregon State: Riley consistently does more w/less
6. Arizona: RichRod's got a good offense, avg. D
7. ucla: Star QB in Hunley, Franklin to NFL, Defensive questions for Jim Mora Jr.
8. Cal: Rebuilding but still some talent there for new Coach Sonny Dykes.
The rest of the teams won't be very good, but it's as solid a league as there is outside the SEC. There aren't many "gimme" wins in the conference, especially on the road.
