If your team survived rivalry weekend without sweating bullets, consider yourself lucky. The wild weekend struck the Pac-12 as four games were decided by 10 points or less. Oregon nearly lost again to further add to the madness and Arizona State, of all teams, had the biggest blowout in the conference.

Nothing was as wild as Alabama-Auburn or Ohio State-Michigan but it just showed how strong the Pac-12 was. Three teams ranked No. 12 or higher in the Associated Press top 25 and a fourth in the top 20. While I won’t claim they’re better than the SEC top to bottom like I did before, being the second best conference in America is no slouch.

Sadly, this is the last Pac-12 recap of the season. Stanford-Arizona State II will get its own preview this weekend for the Pac-12 championship as well as a review where I might throw in some parting gifts. One more time, let’s recap the Pac-12’s wild rivalry week.
