PAC-12 Football Weekend Recap (Week 10)

The PAC-12 South saw four teams become bowl eligible this weekend, Arizona State (6-2, 4-1), Arizona (6-2, 3-2), UCLA (6-2, 3-2) and USC (6-3, 3-2). This also credited a log jam behind ASU in the standings with one game separating these schools. Only one game was decided by a touchdown or less over the weekend. Here’s the rest of what happened around the PAC-12 Conference this weekend and out recap.
