Pac-12 Football needs to stop cutting its nose to spite its face.
When the No. 13 Stanford Cardinal came into Autzen Stadium to face the Oregon Ducks, who were ranked No. 1 on three separate polls and No. 2 in the BCS, they had one thing on their minds—winning.

Not only did the Alabama Crimson Tide jump back into National Championship Game talks, but the Ducks were also leap-frogged by two other teams from the SEC with one loss on their resume; the Georgia Bulldogs and the Florida Gators.
