After losing to Arizona in the Territorial Cup Friday, Arizona State fell to No. 17 in the AP Poll and No. 18 in the Coaches Poll, a four-spot drop from last week's ranking at No. 13.

The Sun Devils and Wildcats engaged in a shootout Friday which appropriately came down to the last drive. With 1:07 to play, ASU faced 4th and 12 in Arizona territory but Mike Bercovici couldn't find Jaelen Strong on the left side of the formation. It was the first ASU Territorial Cup loss for Todd Graham and his staff. Arizona jumped up to No. 8 with the win.

Now No. 3 Oregon handled Oregon State in the Civil War 47-19 behind 367 yards passing and six total touchdowns from Heisman frontrunner Marcus Mariota. Stanford upset UCLA 31-10, which dropped the Bruins to No. 16 in the AP Poll. This result allowed Arizona, the winner of the Territorial Cup, to win the Pac-12 South.

Utah defeated Colorado 38-34 with 311 yards passing and three touchdowns from Ute quarterback Travis Wilson.The Buffs took a 34-28 lead in the third quarter, but Utah responded with 10 unanswered points. It pushed the Utes to No. 24.

As for ASU, the regular season is now over. The Sun Devils finished 9-3 and will await their fait and see which bowls they get invited to play in.
