Pac-12 football kicked off this week on Thursday with the Oregon Ducks destroying the California Golden Bears, 43-15. The Ducks did lose running back LaMichael James to a dislocated elbow, but he is expected to return this season after X-rays were negative.

Since the Ducks lost to the LSU Tigers during Week 1 of the season, they have won four straight games by 25 points or more. However, the 4-0 Stanford Cardinal remains atop the Pac-12 standings. Andrew Luck will lead the Cardinal against the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday.

Here is Pac-12 schedule for Saturday:

Arizona Wildcats (1-4, 0-3 Pac-12) vs. Oregon St. Beavers (0-4, 0-2 Pac-12), 1:30 p.m. MT: Since they opened the season with a victory, Arizona has had a tough stretch on its schedule. Oklahoma State, Stanford, Oregon and USC in successive weeks will take its toll on any team. Things get easier even with a trip to Corvallis to face Oregon State.

No. 22 Arizona St. Sun Devils (4-1, 2-0 Pac-12) vs. Utah Utes (2-2, 0-2 Pac-12), 1:30 p.m. MT: Our Arizona State blog, House of Sparky, is looking for a strong defense to prop up what could be a tough away game for quarterback Brock Osweiler. The Utes go for their first Pac-12 victory on their third try.

Colorado Buffaloes (1-4, 0-1 Pac-12) vs. No. 7 Stanford Cardinal (4-0, 2-0 Pac-12), 5:30 p.m. MT, Versus: Andrew Luck versus a Colorado secondary that will rely on two converted offensive players following the suspension of five players. This doesn't end well.

Washington St. Cougars (3-1, 1-0 Pac-12) vs. UCLA Bruins (2-3, 1-1 Pac-12), 8:30 p.m. MT: The Cougars engineered a fourth-quarter comeback against Colorado and will continue with Marshall Lobbestael at the helm. The Bruins, meanwhile, could use a big win. Their two victories came against San Jose State and Oregon State. But the Cougars aren't Texas or Stanford.
