The Oregon Ducks won their seventh game of the season—yet their fans don’t appear to be very happy about it. Jeremiah Johnson and LeGarrette Blount carried the load for Oregon as the Ducks once again rushed for over 300 yards.
The Beavers have done it! They’ve cracked the top 25 and deservedly so. After starting slow in the first half, the Beavs played well in the second half. They traveled to UCLA and beat the Bruins to keep their Rose Bowl hopes alive. Oregon State will need wins against Cal, Arizona, and Oregon for a return trip to Pasadena.
While Washington State showed it has a little fight left, it was not nearly enough, as Arizona never let up and scored at will. The win clinched the Wildcats their first bowl appearance in a decade.
USC’s defense shines once again, as the Trojans held Cal to only 165 yards of total offense and three points. The Trojans' offense, however, managed only 17 points and is still looking somewhat average. The Trojans did manage to gain a little in the polls.
The Washington Huskies looked as though they might find a way to win a game this season. Unfortunately, they allowed 16 fourth quarter points to a Sun Devils team that is struggling themselves. With the win against the Huskies, Arizona State ended a six-game skid.
