The weekly Pac-12 Prankings . . .

 

Wherein we take a stern, serious, traditional look at the state of the conference in football:

1. Oregon (4-0) … During bye, modeled new chartreuse-persimmon uniforms

2. Stanford (3-1) … Goal line so foreign, offense now required to show passports

3. UCLA (4-0) … Mora was about to pin sputtering start on Olindo Mare

4. USC (3-1) … Sark consulting Kiffin on how to stop Sun Devils

5. Arizona (4-0) … RichRod suddenly looks like Bear Bryant to Michigan fans

6. California (3-1) … Sadly, will miss lentil festival on Palouse trip

7. Arizona State (3-1) … Other than 627 missed tackles, played well against UCLA

8. Washington (4-1) … On bright side, gained more than 72 inches per play vs. Stanford

9. Washington State (2-3) … Took until Tuesday to get uniforms dried out

10. Utah (3-1) … Revealed: Passing game derived from old wishbone playbook

11. Oregon State (3-1) .. After USC, Riley treated skeptical team at Broccoli Heaven

12. Colorado (2-3) … Defensive gaps so huge, unit now known as Boulder Canyon
