Pac-10 Power Poll: Week 8

It's week ocho in the Pac-10, and USC is still on top, having never received anything less than a first place vote this season. The Cougs, on the other hand, have received votes above 10th place - just not this week, where we swept the bottom once again.

Can Oregon State win the Pac-10? Can USC make another BCS bowl game? Is Arizona actually good? All these questions and more will be answered in the coming weeks.

The Trojan defense didn't allow the WSU offense to pass midfield once on Saturday. Yeah, they're good.

 Oddly enough, our friends at Cal Golden Blogs had a tie at #3 between OSU and Stanford. The half a point OSU got from that was enough to put them above the rival Ducks.

The toughest team in the conference to figure out. No unbeatens left in conference play.

 I admit it. I was wrong about Arizona being overrated. Hopefully I just jinxed them for the Nov. 8th game in Pullman.

 Stanford has a bye this week, and then another bye the following week when they play the Cougs.

 Who'd have ever thought the Sun Devils would fall this far? The reason: an offense that hasn't scored more than 20 points in a game all year.

 UCLA continues to fight - maybe that BYU game was an aberration. Or just an indication of how bad this conference is.

 Ty takes the team he's currently destroying up against the team he formerly destroyed (Notre Dame) this weekend.

One bright spot for recruiting: if the kid wants to be a Coug, he still has to come here.
