Pac-12 Power Rankings – Week 13

Posted: November 24, 2011 in Power Rankings

There’s comes a time in every college football season where the transitive property gets thrown out the proverbial window. The events of last weekend created a complete mess of both the national landscape and the Pac-12 conference standings.

As far as the power rankings go, right now this is the best I can do.
Warning: Much of this makes almost no sense whatsoever.

TIER 1

SC beat up UO (at Autzen), who hammered Stanford (at the Farm), who escaped SC (in LA).

TIER 2

The Bruins got past ASU and Cal, who both beat Utah, who then spanked the Bruins.

TIER 3

The Beavs beat the Cougs, who beat the Buffs, who beat the ‘Cats. But who really cares?

PREDICTIONS:
Colorado @ Utah >> The Utes draw first blood in their new regional rivalry with the Buffaloes, extending their win-streak to five games after starting 0-4 in conference play.
California @ Arizona St >> The Sun Devils snap out of their funk with some big plays on D and get the win they need to represent the South Division in the Pac-12 Championship Game.
Oregon St @ Oregon >> The Beavers fight hard before the Ducks explode in the second half to get their fourth-straight Civil War victory, cementing an appearance in the Rose Bowl.
Louisiana-Lafayette @ Arizona >> The Wildcats welcome new head coach Rich Rodriguez with a home win over the 8-3 Ragin’ Cajuns, of the Sun Belt conference.
Washington St @ Washington >> Husky quarterback Keith Price returns from injury to lead his team to a close victory in another classic battle for the Apple Cup.
Notre Dame @ Stanford >> Stanford, clad in new Nike Pro Combat uniforms, gets a gritty win over their cross-country rivals behind the arm of their soon-to-be-pro QB.
UCLA @ USC >> The Bruins play inspired, but the red-hot Trojans are riding high right now. USC maintains possession of the Victory Bell.

Last week’s picks: 3-3
Season record: 58-26
