The Pac-12 Champion Will Be ... Stanford over Arizona State

Best Game of the First Half
Sept. 9 – Arizona State 37, Missouri 30 OT

Worst Game of the First Half
Sept. 17 – Oregon 56, Missouri State 7

Coach of the Midseason
Steve Sarkisian, Washington

Best Performance So Far
USC WR Robert Woods caught a school-record 17 passes for 177 yards and three touchdowns to help the Trojans get past Minnesota on the opening weekend. Or, for that matter, when Woods burned Arizona for 14 receptions for 255 yards and two scores on Oct. 1.

Top Freshman
Scott Crichton, DE Oregon State

3 Big Calls For The Second Half
1. Unbeaten Stanford will defeat just one ranked team all year, yet still feel jobbed when it fails to qualify for a spot in the BCS National Championship Game.
2. At least one Pac-12 coach, likely either Arizona’s Mike Stoops or UCLA’s Rick Neuheisel, will get the hook before the end of the regular season.
3. An already resurgent Wazzu offense will become even more potent once QB Jeff Tuel is healthy enough to regain his old starting job.
