Oregon's convincing win at Washington and Utah's upset over Stanford highlighted a wild Saturday. Here's a look at all the Pac-12 football action from week 7:
In the upset of the weekend, the Utes surged ahead of the Cardinal behind an explosive rushing attack and held on when Stanford turned the ball over on downs near the goal line late. This was Utah's first win over a top-five opponent since it defeated No. 4 Alabama in the 2009 Sugar Bowl. Hear from Travis Wilson and Kyle Whittingham on the upset. The Utes now go to Arizona while Stanford returns home to face UCLA.
The Trojans kicked off Ed Orgeron's interim tenure with a bang. The rejuvenated Trojans busted open a 25-point lead behind 297 Cody Kessler passing yards. They later withstood a furious Arizona rally to win. USC has momentum as it heads to Notre Dame, while Arizona hosts Utah next week.
Marcus Mariota's sensational performance fueled the Ducks in a hostile environment in Seattle. He passed for 366 yards and rushed for 88 more while accounting for a quartet of touchdowns in the Ducks' typical high-powered offensive effort. Washington, which now has lost twice in a row, moves on to Arizona State. Oregon hosts Washington State.
Over 80,000 saw the Bruins cruise against Cal at the Rose Bowl to avenge last year's defeat to the Golden Bears. Brett Hundley passed for a career-high 410 yards in the effort. A showdown at Stanford is next for UCLA. Cal returns home to play Oregon State.
This game was knotted at 24 entering the fourth quarter, but the Beavers ripped off four consecutive touchdowns to win big in Pullman. Sean Mannion's 493 passing yards and four touchdowns pushed Mike Riley's squad to 5-1 (3-0 in Pac-12 play) ahead of a road trip to Berkeley. The Cougars head to Oregon next week.
The Sun Devils' brutal early-season stretch is over, and they got back on the winning track after scoring 25 points in the game's first 11 minutes to rout the Buffaloes Saturday in Tempe. Marion Grice now leads the nation with 15 touchdowns on the season. The Sun Devils host a critical game versus Washington next week, while Colorado plays Charleston Southern.
