Pac-12 Football Standings 2012: Oregon, Stanford and Oregon State prepare for North Division championship troika

US PRESSWIRE

UCLA and USC lead the South Division, while Oregon, Stanford and Oregon State battle for the North Division crown in the Pac-12.

Oregon's impressive 62-51 Saturday win over USC kept the undefeated Ducks in the best position to win the Pac-12 North and host the league's championship game. The Ducks are now 6-0 in conference play and well positioned for a round robin of games between themselves, Stanford and Oregon State over the next three weeks that will decide the division. Oregon State, which is 5-1 in conference play and 7-1 overall after this weekend's victory over Arizona State, shares second place in the North with Stanford, which is also 5-1 in the conference. The Beavers visit Palo Alto Saturday in a de facto Pac-12 North elimination game, and both teams face Oregon in the season's closing weeks.

In the Pac-12 South, USC's loss thrusts UCLA into the top position and makes the team's annual rivalry contest a likely division championship game. The Bruins destroyed Arizona 66-10 Saturday to go to 4-2 in the conference and 7-2 overall, giving them a half-game lead over the Trojans. UCLA has a tough road to the finish, though: After a visit to 2-7 Washington State next weekend, the Bruins host USC and Stanford in consecutive weeks. USC, meanwhile, has a home date with Arizona State next weekend and the aforementioned cross-town rivalry game to close its slate. Arizona State, at 3-3 in the conference and 5-4 overall, remains mathematically alive, but their previous loss to UCLA makes their path to a division championship difficult.
