    [​IMG]Here's a quick look at Week*five in the Pac-12.

    California and Oregon are off. All games Saturday. All times are ET.

    Arizona (1-3, 0-2) at USC (3-1, 1-1) 3:30 p.m., FSN: The Wildcats have been reeling for three weeks, but USC doesn't feel much better after getting whipped at Arizona State. Both teams need a win, but the Wildcats are trying to snap an eight-game losing streak against FBS foes.

    Washington State (2-1, 0-0) at Colorado (1-3, 0-0) 3:30 p.m., FCS: The first "official" Pac-12 game inside Folsom Field (the visit from California didn't count in the conference standings). Both teams probably feel like they need to win this game to have hopes for bowl eligibility.*They*haven't*played since 2004, a 20-12 Buffaloes win.

    Washington (3-1, 1-0) at Utah (2-1, 0-1) 7 p.m. FSN: The first Pac-12 game inside Rice-Eccles Stadium. The Utes will want to make a statement about belonging. Both teams are hoping to move up in their respective divisions. The winner might end up ranked. The Huskies are 6-0 all-time versus Utah, though the teams haven't played since 1979.

    Oregon State (0-3, 0-1) at No. 25 Arizona State (3-1, 1-0) 10:30 p.m., FS Arizona: The Sun Devils probably shouldn't take Oregon State too lightly, seeing that the Beavers beat them 31-28 last year. The Beavers haven't started 0-4 since 1996. This will be Oregon State redshirt freshman QB Sean Mannion's first road start. The Sun Devils shouldn't be looking ahead to a big South Division date with Utah on Oct. 8.

    UCLA (2-2, 1-0) at No. 6 Stanford (3-0, 1-0) 10:30 p.m., FSN: UCLA got a critical win at Oregon State, but a visit to Stanford is a much more challenging road date. The Cardinal buried the Bruins 35-0 last year. UCLA probably will need to throw the ball: Stanford ranks No. 1 in the nation in rush defense. Of course, this will be the Cardinal's first game without LB Shayne Skov.

    Good chance for the Buffs to make a move towards being the #8 team in the Pac-12 power rankings this weekend. Arizona is going to be 1-4 with their loss at U$C, UCLA is going to get thumped at Stanford to drop to 2-3, and Oregon State is going to be in deep **** at 0-4 with their loss at ASU.

    Still pissed we don't play Oregon State. Things are looking miserable for us, but if Oregon State doesn't beat Arizona in Corvallis on Oct. 8, they might go winless. Best chances aside from that are BYU on 10/15 (BYU isn't great but still should win that) and @ Wazzu on 10/22 (Wazzu has certainly looked like the far better of these two thus far + it's a road game for the Beavs). Their schedule is brutal after that: @ Utah, Stanford, @ Cal, Washington, @ Oregon.
