Dante Pettis stands alone in Pac-12 history
Dante Pettis rewrote the record books Saturday night as he broke the all-time Pac-12 record for punt returns for touchdowns, returning his ninth career punt for a score during the second quarter of Washington’s (8-1, 5-1 Pac-12) 38-3 route of Oregon.
USC controls the Pac-12 South
After USC’s (8-2, 6-1 Pac-12) 21-6 victory over Arizona (6-3, 4-2 Pac-12), the Trojans now control their own destiny to the Pac-12 Championship game. USC is just the third team to defeat Arizona, who is lead by Heisman candidate and four-time Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week Khalil Tate. Heading into the final leg of the season, the Trojans will more than likely represent the Pac-12 South in the Pac-12 title game on Dec. 1.
ASU scores 24 points in the fourth quarter to defeat Colorado
Arizona State (5-4, 4-2 Pac-12) is back to looking like the team they were earlier this season. After their hot streak of defeating then-No. 5 Washington and Utah in back-to-back weeks, it seemed like the Sun Devils might have hit a new low if they lost to the Colorado Buffaloes (5-5, 2-5 Pac-12), who are at the bottom of the Pac-12 South. But ASU managed to fight back and score 24 points in the fourth quarter, which included rushing touchdowns from Demario Richard, Eno Benjamin and Manny Wilkins to win this one 41-30.
Washington State upsets Stanford
The No. 25 Washington State Cougars (8-2, 5-2 Pac-12) are back into the win column after defeating the No. 21 Stanford Cardinal (6-3, 5-2 Pac-12) and holding Heisman candidate Bryce Love to only 69 yards rushing. Luke Falk played his best game since Week 4 as he threw for 337 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.
No. 9 Washington - the Huskies move up three spots after their blowout win over the Ducks.
No. 15 USC - the Trojans move up two spots after their win over the Wildcats.
No. 19 Washington State - the Cougars move up six spots after they upset the Stanford Cardinal.
