CFB: (6) Stanford at (25) Oregon St.

Two weeks ago the Stanford Cardinal reinforced the notion that college football isn't so much about if you lose but rather when you lose. A horrible loss to Utah could have derailed any hopes at a championship, but just one week later, six teams in the top 10 lost, vaulting the Cardinal up to No. 6 in the first BCS standings. They'll need some more good luck with teams above them losing, but there is a small light at the end of the tunnel. Will it keep shining after a date with Oregon State?

Things are pretty interesting in the Pac-12 these days. Oregon is a perennial contender but just lost coach Chip Kelly to the NFL. Stanford won the conference last season, but will the Cardinal be able to repeat? Then there's the rise of UCLA, USC's constant state of flux and many other bits of intrigue out West. How will these teams stack up in 2013? Make your picks!

Marqise Lee returned to USC practice Wednesday, prompting a sigh of relief from the injury-riddled Trojans. Lee is college football's near-consensus top receiver. Can anyone challenge the likely top 10 pick in 2013 for that title? How do the rest of the best stack up?
