Here's a quick look at Week 6 in the conference. All times are ET.

Thursday

No. 13 USC (3-1, 1-1) at Utah (2-2, 0-1) 9 p.m. ESPN: USC leads the series 7-3, including a 23-14 win last year in the Coliseum. The Trojans, 1-1 in Salt Lake City, dropped the first two games in the series -- in 1915 and 1916 -- and the 2001 Las Vegas Bowl. The Trojans won the other six meetings with the Utes, allowing only 30 points in those wins, with three shutouts. In last year's game, Utah trailed 17-14, but lined up for a 41-yard field goal to tie the game with 11 seconds left. It was blocked and returned for a TD, but the TD wasn't added to the official score until well after the teams had left the field.

Saturday

Arizona (3-2, 0-2) at No. 18 Stanford (3-1, 1-1) 3 p.m. Fox: Arizona leads the series 14-13, but has lost four of five and seven of nine in the series. Stanford won 37-10 in Tucson last year. Both teams are coming off conference losses. Stanford is third in the nation in rushing defense (65 yards per game), while Arizona is third in the Pac-12 in rushing with 194.4 yards per game.

Washington State (2-3, 0-2) at No. 14 Oregon State (3-0, 2-0) 6 p.m., Pac-12 Network: Washington State leads the series 48-45-4 but Oregon State has won four of five, including a 44-21 win last year in Pullman. Cougars WR Marquess Wilson broke Brandon Gibson’s school record of 2,756 receiving yards during his 182-yard performance against Oregon. Wilson now has 2,893 career receiving yards. The Beavers haven't started 4-0 since 2002, the last time they were 3-0 also.

No. 25 UCLA (4-1, 1-1) at California (1-4, 0-2) 10 p.m. Pac-12 Network: UCLA leads the series with California 50-31-1, including a 31-14 win last year in LA, which ended a three-game Bruins losing streak. The Bruins are second in the Pac-12 in rushing offense (243.4 yards per game) and California is last in the Pac-12 in rushing defense (174.8 ypg).

No. 23 Washington (3-1, 1-0) at No. 2 Oregon (5-0, 2-0) 10:30 p.m. ESPN: Washington leads the series 58-41-5, but Oregon has won eight in a row by at least 17 points. The Ducks also have won 13 of the past 17 games. Last year, in the final game in the old Husky Stadium, the Ducks beat the the Huskies, 34-17. In 2010 in Eugene, UW QB Keith Price made his first college start in a 53-16 Huskies loss. Oregon led 18-16 in the third quarter before pulling away. This will be the Huskies' third top-10 opponent in a stretch of four games.
