College Football Standings: Pac-12 Should Pit Oregon Against UCLA Or Arizona State

The Pac-12 has one division all but settled. The other one is anything but.

Oregon's Week 11 win over Stanford has all but ended the race in the Pac-12 North. The Ducks are 7-0 in conference and have games remaining against USC and Oregon State, but obviously hold a head-to-head tiebreaker against Stanford, 7-1 in conference, and would need to lose both games to not go to the first Pac-12 Championship Game.

The Ducks' likely opponent in that game is still up in the air. The Pac-12 South's best team and current leader, USC, is ineligible to play in the postseason game, which means that UCLA and Arizona State, both 4-3 in conference play, are the likely South representatives. And UCLA beat Arizona State in a wild Week 10 game, meaning that the Bruins control their own destiny.

They would have to win against Colorado and at USC to make an unlikely Pac-12 title a reality, but the Bruins have done odder things in recent years. It would perhaps be odder if Utah, with a losing record in conference play, wins the South — still a possibility, if the Utes win out and UCLA and Arizona State both lose their remaining games.
