Colorado falls, Oregon becomes the favorite and more

We’re already through eight weeks.

Eight weeks into Pac-12 football and things have become more clear.

Colorado? The Buffs couldn’t sustain momentum following last week’s overtime win over Cal in Boulder. Colorado traveled north to Corvallis to face a good Oregon State team and between an inability to stop an already strong Beavers rushing attack — including allowing a career-high 178 yards and three touchdowns to Damien Martinez — and a listless showing from the Pac-12’s worst offense, the Buffs lost 42-9 and fell to 1-6 on the season. The Beavers, meanwhile, improved to 6-2 and became bowl eligible.

The lower tier of the conference maintained its status quo, as Stanford (3-4, 1-4 Pac-12) beat Arizona State (2-5, 1-3), 15-14, in a slog of a game in Palo Alto. Between an ongoing NCAA investigation, a mass exodus of assistants and a home loss to Eastern Michigan that led to the firing of Herm Edwards, the season has never been great for the Sun Devils and it didn’t improve on Saturday.

The game between Cal (3-4, 1-3) and Washington (6-2, 3-2) in northern California was a surprisingly great game.

Cal kept it close against a quality Huskies team until the fourth quarter, where two quick touchdowns broke a deadlock and gave Washington a 28-14 lead with 10:19 remaining. The Golden Bears fought back, though, as an 80-yard drive ending with an 8-yard touchdown catch by Mavin Anderson cut the Washington lead down to 28-21 with 6:11 left.
