Pac-12 football standings after Week 9: just one month left in the regular season

Everything was pretty straightforward in the Pac-12 this weekend. The teams that were predicted to win did just that: UCLA beat Stanford, USC defeated Arizona, Arizona State topped Colorado, Oregon beat Cal, and Utah escaped the Cougars of Washington State on Thursday night.

Oregon State and Washington both had bye weeks, and all eyes are on the Week 12 slate: Utah at Oregon and USC at UCLA.

Until then, the standings won’t change very much, barring some wild upset. Let’s take a look at the latest Pac-12 standings, and the Colorado Buffaloes are now officially at the bottom of the conference after another loss (their seventh loss of the year).
