Conference Power Rankings: Pac-12

By Jason King

The assumption for most of the past two months was that Arizona would win the Pac-12 title with ease. The Wildcats looked extremely strong -- and the rest of the league didn't. But as conference play opens this week, the thinking has changed. Arizona barely escaped Colorado in Tucson on Thursday evening while UCLA followed up its victory over then-No. 7 Missouri by thumping Cal. Maybe, just maybe, this will be an interesting race after all.
