Both the Oregon Ducks and Stanford Cardinal took care of business on Nov. 5 to stay perfect in Pac-12 play. The Ducks beat Washington 34-17, and Stanford defeated Oregon State 38-13. The two teams will meet in Stanford on Nov. 12 for a game that will, in all likelihood, determine the North Division.
In the South, meanwhile, there's a logjam at the top; USC, UCLA and Arizona State are tied for first with 4-2 conference records. The Bruins upset the Sun Devils on Saturday, and the Sun Devils have beaten the Trojans this season. Southern Cal and UCLA will meet on Nov. 26.
The Colorado Buffaloes missed out on another chance for their first Pac-12 win when they lost 42-17 to USC last Friday, but they have three more shots ahead of them, and the schedule does ease up down the stretch. They'll host 1-6 Arizona on Nov. 12, then hit the road for games at UCLA and Utah.

1.) Stanford Cardinal (7-0 in Pac-12, 9-0 overall)
