The latest BCS standings were released Sunday, and the Oregon Ducks once again sit atop the rankings. The Ducks have led the BCS standings in each of the last four weeks, after ranking second in the first two incarnations this season. The Pac-10 conference has three teams in the BCS top 25, with the No. 6 Stanford Cardinal and No. 21 Arizona Wildcats joining Oregon. Two of these teams match up next Friday, making for an exciting Thanksgiving weekend for the Pac-10.
On Friday night at 7 p.m. PST in Eugene, Oregon, the Ducks will host the Wildcats in the matchup of the week. If this game is anything like last year's matchup between these two teams, we will be in for a treat. In 2009 in Tucson, a relatively mild-mannered 17-14 game after three quarters morphed into a shootout. Four touchdowns and a field goal in the fourth quarter sent the game into overtime tied at 31-31. Then, in the second overtime, after Arizona went up by a field goal, the Ducks won on a rushing touchdown by quarterback Jeremiah Masoli.
- The No. 6 Stanford Cardinal host the Oregon State Beavers, who need a win against either Stanford or Oregon to become bowl eligible. Stanford will look to avenge last season's 38-28 defeat in Corvallis.
- Washington at California: If Cal wins, they become bowl eligible. If the Huskies win, they would need one more win over Washington State to qualify for a bowl.
- UCLA at Arizona State (Friday): The Bruins need wins in their final two games to become bowl eligible, quite a tall order.
- Notre Dame at USC: The Trojans look for their ninth straight win against the Irish.
