Doug Baldwin and Stanford tore Cal's defense apart. Will he be rewarded with a move up in the rankings?
Thanksgiving is fast approaching, but ranking the wide receivers is in the Pac-10 never stops.
That is, until the season ends.
As long as the players are still playing, the list will keep changing.
And don't expect the likes of Juron Criner and Jeff Maehl to get caught sleeping from all of the tryptophan.
This week's edition remains relatively static, though the Turkey Day weekend games should yield some juicy performances from the conference's speediest and most sure-handed standouts.
Jermaine Kearse has fallen off in recent weeks, but his body of work keeps him in the rankings.
How important is having a strong resume?
For Jermaine Kearse, it's just about the only thing keeping him in the rankings.
Kearse nearly dropped out of the top 10 after accumulating a miserly 17 yards on just three catches in Washington's 24-7 Thursday night victory over a reeling UCLA team.
Luckily for Kearse, it would have been patently absurd to exclude someone who is eighth in the conference in receptions (50), fifth in receiving yards (746) and second in touchdown catches (11).
Jake Locker and the Huskies will need more from Kearse if they are to keep their bowl hopes alive against Cal on Saturday.
Last week's ranking: 10th
Robert Woods has fallen into a freshman funk of late.
Speaking of players who have far underperformed in recent weeks, Robert Woods seems to have run into some sort of freshman wall.
And at the speeds that Woods is capable of, such a collision isn't pretty to watch.
Woods' downward trend continued during USC's blowout loss at Oregon State, as he accounted for only 15 yards on three catches.
To be fair, Woods also put up 68 yards on two kickoff returns along with 20 yards on two rushes.
Clearly, Woods is capable of putting up bigger numbers. Whether Matt Barkley's absence due to injury had anything to do with yet another drop in production will be seen as the Trojans take on Notre Dame this weekend.
Last week's ranking: eighth
Ronald Johnson may be pointing up, but his on-field performance has been trending down.
Like his Trojan teammate, Ronald Johnson has been less than his spectacular self of late.
RoJo managed a mere 45 yards on five catches in Corvallis against Oregon State, though he was far from the only person on the USC sideline who had a subpar performance that day.
The Trojans will need the veteran Johnson to come out strong if they are to hold off a surging Notre Dame squad at the Coliseum on Saturday.
Last week's ranking: ninth
Keenan Allen laid out for a jack-of-all-trades performance on Saturday.
Though there were many turkeys in the Cal locker-room to blame for a 48-14 Big Game whoopin' against Stanford, Keenan Allen was not one of them.
Allen, a one-time previous member of the power rankings, contributed to the Golden Bears' cause in just about every way imaginable.
Aside from his eight catches for 54 yards, Allen passed for a 17-yard touchdown, rushed twice for 17 yards and returned five kicks for 120 yards.
For that diverse effort, Allen receives the first "Jack of All Trades" award of the season.
Last week's ranking: not ranked
Marvin Jones and the Golden Bears had some difficulty escaping the grasp of the Stanford defense.
So who was on the receiving end of Keenan Allen's touchdown toss?
Why, Marvin Jones, of course!
Jones' touchdown grab was one of the three catches he had on the afternoon, all of which totaled to 49 yards for Cal's go-to guy.
Jones and the Golden Bears will try once again to become bowl-eligible with a game against Washington looming this weekend.
Last week's ranking: seventh
Washington State's Marquess Wilson is the first of three receivers on this week's list who maintains his spot by virtue of inactivity.
He and the Cougars will have to wait yet another week for a shot at their second Pac-10 win of the year with the annual Apple Cup against Washington set for Dec. 4.
Last week's ranking: fifth
Markus Wheaton continues to progress for Oregon State amidst the absence of James Rodgers.
Markus Wheaton may not have been THE star of Oregon State's throttling of USC at Reser Stadium in Corvallis, but he was certainly no slouch.
Beneath the towering shadow of the diminuitive Jacquizz Rodgers, Wheaton put up 40 yards on five catches along with 63 yards on six carries.
He and the Beavers will look to secure a bowl berth of some sort with an upset of seventh-ranked Stanford on Saturday.
Last week's ranking: third
Doug Baldwin had a solid game for Stanford in the Big Game against Cal, but the numbers don't even begin to tell the tale of just how good he really was.
Okay, so five catches for 97 yards and a touchdown makes for a nice day of work on paper.
But, please, do yourself a favor and check out just how he came down with the score.
Berkeley fans, avert your eyes.
Jeff Maehl will look to continue his stellar play this week against Arizona.
Jeff Maehl finds himself back in the second slot by virtue of Oregon's having the week off to prepare for this week's Friday festivities against 21st-ranked Arizona.
The Ducks will need Maehl to come up big once again if they are to keep their national title hopes alive.
Last week's ranking: second
Juron Criner will have to stand tall on Friday if he is to remain No.1 in the power rankings.
Juron Criner may still be on top of the rankings due to Arizona's bye week, but he'll need a swift recovery from his Thanksgiving food coma if he is to remain on top.
He and the Wildcats will have to contend with top-ranked Oregon the day after the big feast, which could be good or bad for Criner, depending on his turkey intake.
Last week's ranking: first
