Zach Helfand dives into the numbers and schedules of teams to tell us that USC still has a good chance to win the Pac-12 South. It’s wide open, and another three-loss division winner is not out of the realm of possibilities.

Arizona State

Arizona State quarterback Brady White is out for the season, head coach Todd Graham announced Monday. He suffered a right foot injury in the fourth quarter against UCLA.


Josh Furlong of reports that Utah running back Armand Shyne is out for the season with a knee injury after he put up the first 100-yard rushing game this season out of the Ute backfield against Arizona. The Utes have had a ton of RBs get banged up this year.


Brian Howell reports that both Steven Montez and Sefo Liufau are preparing to start against Arizona State this weekend. Liufau continues to heal from a sprained ankle and even filled in for Montez in the USC game after Montez got the wind knocked out of him.


Thuc Nhi Nguyen reports that Jim Mora is optimistic that Josh Rosen will play against Washington State after sustaining multiple injuries in the loss to Arizona State. Huge game here for both sides – UCLA can’t afford to drop to 3-4, while Wazzu can jump into a tie for first in the Pac-12 North with the Dawgs.

Washington State

Oregon State
