The Pac-12’s Week 7 slate should be among the best from Power 5 conferences in college football this weekend. The action kicks off on Thursday night with UCLA visiting Stanford in a potential preview of the Pac-12 Championship. The Bruins lost to Arizona State in Week 5 and need a win against the Cardinal to keep pace with Utah in the South Division. Speaking of the Utes, coach Kyle Whittingham’s team has a chance to put some distance in the division race with a matchup against Arizona State this weekend. It was a busy week for news at USC, and interim coach Clay Helton faces a tough assignment with a trip to Notre Dame on Saturday night. Oregon travels to Washington in a critical game for both teams in reaching bowl eligibility, while Arizona visits Colorado and Washington State hosts Oregon State.
