Handicapping the Pac-12 title race

Corrected: 9:09 p.m.
Two games separate the top five teams in the Pac-12.
Surprisingly, Washington, California and Colorado each finish the season with five of seven games on the road.
Interesting to note Arizona and UW have the easiest paths down the stretch. The Wildcats play five home games and the combine record of their opponents is 31-44. The Huskies face just two teams (Oregon and Arizona) that are in the top half of the Pac-12 standings.
Oregon and Oregon State appears to have the most difficult remaining schedule. The Ducks play the top three teams in the conference and the Beavers face the top four teams in the league.
Here’s a break down the Pac-12 race and the remaining games of each team. (Home games in bold.)
