Here's a quick look at Week 12 in the Pac-12.

All times are ET. All games are Saturday.

Washington (6-4, 4-3) at Oregon State (2-8, 2-5) 3:30 p.m. Root NW: Washington leads the series 58-33-4 and won last year 35-34 in double-overtime. Huskies quarterback Keith Price hurt his knee last weekend at USC and was replaced by Nick Montana. Price awaits results from tests on his knee, and Montana could get the start in Corvallis. Beavers wide receiver James Rodgers, who has 218 career receptions, needs three catches to pass Mike Hass for No. 1 on the program's all-time list. The Beavers are last in the Pac-12 in scoring (20.3 ppg) and rushing (88.2 ypg).

Utah (6-4, 3-4) at Washington State (4-6, 2-5) 5 p.m. FCS: The series is tied 5-5-0. Washington State won the last meeting 38-21 in 2000. After beating UCLA last weekend, the Utes became bowl eligible for a ninth consecutive season. The Utes have won three in a row and four of five. Utah is 6-0 when running back John White rushes for over 100 yards. The Utes are No. 1 in the Pac-12 in scoring defense (19.2 ppg). The Cougars have two conference wins, equalling their total over the past three seasons combined. Four total wins is their most since going 5-7 in 2007. WR Marquess Wilson has 1,197 yards receiving, a new school season record. In the win over Arizona State, redshirt freshman quarterback Connor Halliday set a Pac-12 freshman record with 494 yards passing.

Colorado (2-9, 1-6) at UCLA (5-5, 4-3) 7:30 p.m. Versus: UCLA leads the series 4-2, but Colorado won the last game 16-14 in 2003. Colorado ended a seven-game losing streak with its first Pac-12 win last weekend against Arizona. UCLA controls its own Pac-12 South Division destiny. If it wins out, it wins the division. The Bruins rank last in the conference in run defense (190.2 ypg). Colorado ranks last in scoring defense (37.8 ppg) and 11th in scoring offense (21.3 ppg).

No. 18 (AP) USC (8-2, 5-2) at No. 4 Oregon (9-1, 7-0) 8 p.m. ABC: USC leads the series 37-18-2 but Oregon won its second in a row 53-32 last year in the Coliseum. If the Ducks win, they clinch the Pac-12 North Division title. Oregon has won 21 consecutive home games and 19 consecutive conference games. 25 of the Ducks 65 TDs this year have come on plays of 25 or more yards. The Ducks rank third in the nation in scoring (46.7 ppg). USC has won at least eight games 10 consecutive seasons. The Trojans had a season-high seven sacks in their win over Washington. Oregon has allowed just seven sacks this year. The Trojans have held an opponent to less than 100 yards rushing five times this year; USC ranks second in the Pac-12 in run defense. Oregon ranks fifth in the nation in rushing (291.8 ypg).

Arizona (2-8, 1-7) at Arizona State (6-4, 4-3) 9:30 p.m. FSAZ: Arizona leads the rivalry series 46-37-1 but Arizona State won 30-29 in double-overtime last year in Tucson. Wildcats quarterback Nick Foles became the program's all-time leading passer, eclipsing Willie Tuitama with 9,289 yards through the air. Sun Devils wide receiver Jamal Miles returned the opening kickoff against Washington State 95 yards for a TD, his second kickoff return for a TD this season and third for his career, which are both school records. The Sun Devils are 5-0 at home this year. Arizona is last in the Pac-12 in turnover margin at minus-7. Arizona State is first at plus-14. The Wildcats are last in the conference -- and 118th in the nation -- with just eight sacks.

California (6-4, 3-4) at No. 9 Stanford (9-1, 7-1) 10:15 p.m. ESPN: Stanford leads the series 56-46-11, including a 48-14 win at Cal last year. Oregon ended Stanford's 17-game winning streak last week. It had been the nation's longest winning streak. Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck has 74 career TD passes. He needs four more to eclipse John Elway's school record of 77. Luck's 29 TD passes is second to the school record 32 he threw last year. Stanford has scored 30 or more points in 13 consecutive games. The Cardinal is 57 for 57 in redzone trips this season. Cal running back Isi Sofele is the program's ninth 1,000-yard rushing in 10 seasons. Cal is No. 1 and Stanford No. 2 in the Pac-12 in total defense.
