The Pac-12 conference had a rough first week to their college football season. All three road teams lost, and Oregon State lost a home game to FCS team Sacramento State. Week 2 doesn't appear to get much easier, as both Arizona and Oregon St. travel to face highly-ranked teams. Those matchups highlight the week for the conference, plus the first two intraconference games in Pac-12 history, as well as a pair of games nationally televised on ESPN.
