1 USC 1-0. C.J. Gable first USC true freshman to start opener at tailback. But six tailbacks played at Arkansas.
2 Oregon 2-0, 1-0. Dennis Dixon had career-high in completions and passing yards vs. Fresno. Mike Bellotti now winningest Ducks coach ever.
3 UCLA 2-0. Bruins defense looks much-improved so far.Although opposition hasn't been top-tier.
4 Arizona State 2-0. Maybe Dirk Koetter picked right: Rudy Carpenter had career-high 5 TD passes vs. Nevada.
5 California 1-1. Stability at quarterback has been the key so far. When Nate Longshore has been good, Bears have been good.
6 Washington State 1-1. Those 637 yards vs. Idaho were WSU's sixth-highest ever. Cougars could be bowl-bound in what seems to be down season for Pac-10.
7 Arizona 1-1. Somewhat disappointing Wildcats are starting three redshirt freshmen on offensive line.
8 Oregon State 1-1. Beavers seemed to wilt when Boise State punched back.
9 Washington 1-1. UW leads Pac-10 with 504 rushing yards in two games. But second half is becoming a problem.
10 Stanford 0-2, 0-1. Loss to San Jose indicates Stanford's rebuilding is behind UW's.
