Week 6 in the Pac-12 featured a bit of everything: an upset, a first victory on the year, a blowout or two. The standings, though, haven't received any shakeups yet.
Oregon St. Beavers (1-4, 1-2 Pac-12) def. Arizona Wildcats (1-5, 0-4 Pac-12), 37-27: After a grueling stretch of tough games against top-10 teams, Arizona should have had an easy time against Oregon State, a team that lost to FCS Sacramento State. But that wasn't the case. Oregon State used a 27-point second quarter to propel toward the victory. Arizona hurt itself with two lost fumbles and two Nick Foles interceptions. The Beavers picked up their first win of the season.
No. 22 Arizona St. Sun Devils (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12) def. Utah Utes (2-3, 0-3 Pac-12), 35-14: Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler threw for three touchdowns and 325 yards while Utah's Jon Hays had three interceptions. The Utes also turned the ball over on back-to-back-to-back drive in the third and fourth quarters, giving way to more Arizona State points.
No. 7 Stanford Cardinal (5-0, 3-0 Pac-12) def. Colorado Buffaloes (1-5, 0-2 Pac-12), 48-7: This was a horrible loss for the Buffs and things gotten even worse right before the game when it was revealed that Paul Richardson will be out for three weeks with a knee sprain.
UCLA Bruins (3-3, 2-1 Pac-12) def. Washington St. Cougars (3-2, 1-1 Pac-12), 28-25: UCLA got the job down by rallying back from an eight-point fourth quarter deficit to defeat Washington State. UCLA outscored Washington State 14 to nine in the fourth quarter on two touchdown passes by Kevin Prince which were is only two passing touchdowns on the day.
