No. 15 Oregon potentially losing on the road to Washington State. The Ducks were down 27-15 heading into the fourth quarter - then mounted an incredible rally. Final score: Oregon 44, Washington State 41. 

If the Ducks had lost it would have put USC firmly in the Pac-12 driver's seat - assuming the Trojans can escape Corvallis with a win over Oregon State Saturday night. 

Remember, it's no longer North vs. South. The two teams with the best conference winning percentage will meet in the Pac-12 championship game on Dec. 2. Oregon and Utah are two highest-ranked teams outside of the Trojans, and they currently have the best odds to make the title game. 

The more losses Oregon and Utah rack up, the better it is for USC's odds. Utah plays a crumbling Arizona State program Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. and UCLA rolled to a 45-17 win over Colorado earlier in the day.
