With a week left in the regular season, here's this week's edition of Pac-12 power rankings.

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Just one week remains in regular season conference play as the year winds down ahead of bowl season. The Pac-12 continues to get intense with just one week left to solve the puzzle to who will appear in the Pac-12 Championship Game come December.

Below, House of Sparky's Kaelen Jones and Connor Pelton deliver this week's edition of Pac-12 power rankings.

The North

Rank Jones' Picks Pelton's Picks
1. Oregon Oregon
2. Stanford Stanford
3. Washington State Washington State
4. California California
5. Washington Washington
6. Oregon State Oregon State

Breakdown

Jones' Picks

Everything remains the same this week. Oregon is playing as well as we expected them to at the start of the year, Stanford handled business against Cal, and Washington State won despite losing Luke Falk.

Pelton's Picks

No changes this week. Oregon is playing like the best team in the North right now even though it will be Stanford representing the division in the conference title game. Only real debate was whether or not to switch California and Washington.

The South

Rank Jones' Picks Pelton's Picks
1. UCLA (+1) UCLA (+1)
2. USC (-1) USC (-1)
3. Arizona State (+2) Arizona State (+2)
4. Utah Utah
5. Arizona (-2) Arizona (-2)
6. Colorado Colorado

Breakdown

Jones' Picks

USC and UCLA swap yet again this week. The biggest movers are Arizona and Arizona State, who change positions after the Territorial Cup.

Pelton's Picks

We have a switch at the top once again after UCLA's big win at Utah. We will actually get some finality next week in the UCLA/USC debate when the two teams play each other with a spot in the conference championship on the line.
