Last week the Pac-12 conference went 7-3 overall with no in-conference games in action. ASU and Stanford sat out the first week and get things going this week.
The wins were highlighted by Washington's highly publicized domination over Boise State. It was a huge win for the program as they opened up things in big fashion in the renovated stadium.
Oregon moved up to No. 2 in the AP poll after an expected victory over Nicholls State. The Ducks were expected to win easily but they in fact were even more convincing than expected.
Cal dropped their opener to a tough Top-25 ranked Northwestern opponent. Washington State lost to an SEC program down at Auburn and Oregon State is hoping to rebound to a tough opening loss against Eastern Washington.
Colorado closed things out on Sunday with a win over in-state rival Colorado State.
This week the schedule is full again and Arizona State will lead things off this Thursday with Sacramento State in Tempe. ASU is being billed by media as a team to watch in the Pac-12. This opener will give critics a chance to see if the SunDevils are for real. 2015 Top247 receiver Christian Kirk is expected to be on hand as are a handful of other recruits.
On Saturday, Oregon, Arizona and Washington State will hit the road for their opponents. Washington State was on the road last week while the Ducks and Wildcats are making their first road trip of the year.
USC is hosting Washington State and marks the first in-conference game of the season. The Trojans started a bit sluggish in their opener in Hawaii, look for them to bounce back this week.
Utah is hosting Weber State, while Cal is hosting Portland State and Colorado brings in Central Arkansas. All three Pac-12 programs should be able to get things done at home this week.
Stanford opens up the season against San Jose State. While Spartans quarterback David Fales is a highly touted prospect, the Cardinal shouldn't have an issue getting win No. 1.
On the recruiting trail, this is a big weekend for Oregon State who will host four official visitors. Four-star receiver Jalen Brown headlines the group which also includes Alex Van Dyke, Cole Anderson and Bright Ugwoegbu expected in Corvallis.
