Pac-12 scoreboard: UCLA takes over first place in Pac-12 South

Andrew Fielding-US PRESSWIRE

The UCLA Bruins are the new leaders atop the Pac-12 South after USC fell to the Oregon Ducks over the weekend.

The UCLA Bruins are now the sole leaders of the Pac-12 South following their 66-10 blowout victory over the previously No. 22 Arizona Wildcats.

UCLA's win coupled with USC's 62-51 defeat against the Oregon Ducks allowed the Bruins to leapfrog their crosstown rivals in the standings, as they improved to 7-2 (4-2) compared to USC's 6-3 (4-3) mark. The two squads will face off at the Rose Bowl on Nov. 17.

Few would have predicted UCLA's advantage in the standings nine weeks into the season after the Trojans entered the year as national title contenders. But that's exactly what has happened after USC fell to Stanford, Arizona and now Oregon. The Bruins moved from unranked to No. 17 in the latest AP Top 25 Poll following their takedown the Wildcats.

Oregon, meanwhile, remains the class of the Pac-12 overall with a perfect 9-0 record. Oregon State (7-1) and Stanford (7-2) remain on their heels in the Pac-12 North.

Arizona State remains a darkhorse contender in the South with a 5-4 record, as they will face off against USC on Nov. 10.
