Pac-12 Football Rankings – Week 4


Pac-12 football rankings entering Week 4 of the 2016 season. Stanford remains on top thanks to another complete Christian McCaffrey performance against USC.


Another big night for Christian McCaffrey against USC still has Stanford on top of the Pac-12, but Washington keeps crushing opponents – even if this week it was FCS foe Portland State. 

And here’s to hoping Oregon running back Royce Freeman is feeling better after leaving the Ducks’ loss at Nebraska. Here’s a look at where we see the rest of the Pac-12 heading into Week 4.

Handled Hawaii in some Pac-12 After Dark action.

Royce Freeman is one of the best running backs in the country, and hopefully his injury isn’t too serious after leaving early in the loss to Nebraska.

Survived a tough trip to BYU.

2. Washington 

The Huskies are 3-0 after crushing Portland State 41-3.
