POLL WATCHING: With four teams appearing in this week’s AP Poll, the Pac-12 had a streak of five or more teams in the AP Top 25 snapped at eight consecutive weeks … UTAH moves up to No. 4 in this week’s AP poll, the highest ranking ever for the Utes during the regular season. The Utes had final AP rankings of No. 2 (2004) and No. 4 (2008) following postseason play … Utah is the fourth different Pac-12 team this season to be ranked in the Top 10 … Over the last two seasons, nine different Pac-12 teams have been ranked among the AP Top 25, while six different Conference teams have been ranked among the Top 10 … With OREGON falling out of the AP poll earlier this season, the Ducks had their streak of Top 25 appearances snapped at 98 weeks. It had been the nation’s second-longest active streak.

ALL-PURPOSE: STANFORD sophomore RB Christian McCaffrey is currently second in the FBS with 229.8 all-purpose yards per game. Since 1978, only four other Conference players have averaged 200 or more all-purpose yards per game for an entire season – USC’s Marcus Allen in 1981 (232.6 avg), Stanford’s Glyn Milburn in 1990 (202.0 avg), USC’s Reggie Bush in 2005 (222.3 avg) and USC’s Marqise Lee in 2012 (206.4 avg). Coincidentally, Milburn’s teammate in 1990 was Ed McCaffrey (father of Christian), who had 61 receptions for 917 yards and a Conference-leading 91.7 receiving yards per game that season.

PAC-12 NETWORK TO TAB ALL-CENTURY TEAM: The Pac-12 Network will honor the Conference’s 100-year anniversary with the selection of an All-Century team.
