Pac 12 Football: Way-Too-Early 2014 Power Rankings for North Division

The North division has taken up the Pac-12's banner in each of the three seasons since the conference expanded to 12 members.

In that time, all three Pac-12 champions have come from the North, as have the conference's five total BCS bowl bids.

The 2013 season brought unprecedented success, with five of the North's six teams reaching bowl games, and three finishing ranked in the final Associated Press Top 25.

The division promises to be as strong from top to bottom again in 2014 and perhaps even more competitive in the race for the conference championship.

Two-time defending divisional and conference champion Stanford faces heavy turnover, Oregon is flush with experienced talent but must prove it can withstand an entire 12-game slate with a target on its back, and dark-horse challengers Washington and Oregon State are trying to break through.
