Here's a quick look at Week 13 in the Pac-12.

All times are ET.

Friday

Colorado (2-10, 1-7) at Utah (7-4, 4-4) 3:30 p.m., FSN: No word -- yet -- on the fate of Jon Embree's daughter's bike. The newest bitter rivalry in the Pac-12 is actually not that new. Colorado leads the series 30-24-3, though the last meeting was in 1962, a 37-21 Buffaloes win. Buffs RB Rodney Stewart needs 41 receiving yards to become the 27th player in FBS history to have 3,000 rushing and 1,000 receiving yards in his career. John White's 42 carries against Washington State was the second-highest total in school history. White's 14 rushing TDs has tied a Utah record. The Utes are 7-0 when White rushes for 100 yards.

California (6-5, 3-5) at Arizona State (6-5, 4-4) 10:15 p.m., ESPN: California leads the series 16-14. The Bears won 50-17 last year. Arizona State must win in order to keep its Pac-12 South Division hopes alive. The Sun Devils have lost three in a row and four of five. Sun Devils QB Brock Osweiler has 3,377 passing yards. He is the fifth QB in program history to eclipse 3,000 yards passing. California is No. 1 in the Pac-12 in total defense.

Saturday

Oregon State (3-8, 3-5) at No. 10 Oregon (9-2, 7-1) 3:30, ABC/ESPN2: Oregon leads the series 58-46-10. The Ducks won 37-20 last year. The Ducks need to win to clinch the Pac-12 North Division title. If they lose, Stanford is the North champion. Beavers QB Sean Mannion has 3,033 yards passing. He is the fifth QB in program history to eclipse 3,000 yards passing. RB LaMichael James is now the Ducks' leader in career all-purpose yards with 5,310. Ducks QB Darron Thomas has thrown a TD pass in 23 consecutive games.

Louisiana-Lafayette (8-3) at Arizona (3-8) 4 p.m.: This is the first meeting between these teams. The Ragin' Cajuns started 6-1, losing only to Oklahoma State, but they've lost two of their past four games to Western Kentucky and Arkansas State. Wildcats QB Nick Foles set a school record with 3,982 passing yards, which ranks third all-time in the Pac-12. He needs 77 passing yards to move passed Oregon State's Derek Anderson (4,058) to move into second place. But Foles is questionable for the game with a back injury.

Washington State (4-7, 2-6) at Washington (6-5, 4-4) 7:30 p.m., Versus: Washington leads the series 66-31-6. The Huskies won 35-28 in Pullman last year. This year's game will be played in CenturyLink Field, the Seattle Seahawks' home stadium because Husky Stadium is undergoing renovations. This is the first time since 1980 the Apple Cup has not been played on either campus. Senior Marshall Lobbestael will start at QB for the Cougars after freshman Connor Halliday was hospitalized after the Utah game with a lacerated liver. Keith Price will start for the Huskies at QB. He needs two TD passes to tie Cody Pickett's season record of 28 set in 2001.

No. 22 Notre Dame (8-3) at No. 6 Stanford (10-1, 8-1) 8 p.m., ABC: Notre Dame leads the series 17-8. Stanford won 37-14 last year in South Bend. Stanford RB Stepfan Taylor has rushed for 1,036 yards this season, making him the third Cardinal back to produce multiple 1,000-yard seasons, joining Darrin Nelson (three times) and Toby Gerhart (twice). Cardinal QB Andrew Luck has 31 TD passes, one short of his own school record set last year. He has 76 career TD passes, one short of John Elway's school record of 77. The Cardinal missed a field goal against California last weekend. That's important because it was the first time this season Stanford failed to score in the red zone. They are 61 of 62 this season.

UCLA (6-5, 5-3) at No. 10 (AP) USC (9-2, 6-2) 9 p.m., FSN: USC leads the series 45-28-7. The Trojans won 28-14 last year. UCLA is 4-0 in Pac-12 home games this year, but the Bruins' only road conference win came at Oregon State. The Bruins beat Colorado 45-6 last weekend. It was the most points they've scored since Sept. 1, 2007., when they also had 45 in a win over Stanford. UCLA is 14-0 under coach Rick Neuheisel when holding an opponent under 20 points. USC is looking to post a 10-win season for the eighth time in 10 years and for the 25th time in school history. Trojans WR Robert Woods needs four catches to break Keyshawn Johnson's Pac-12 single-season receptions record (102). Trojans RB Curtis McNeal need 119 yards to hit the 1,000-yard mark. Trojans QB Matt Barkley has 33 TD passes, fourth most in the nation.
