Pac-12 Week 10 Preview: Can Stanford Cardinal Clinch?


While the Pac-12 South is still the Utes to win, the North Division could be clinched by this weekend. Stanford needs a win or a Oregon defeat to clinch the division crown which was won by the Ducks last season. Obviously next week in Palo Alto has more drama if that doesn’t happen if they don’t slip up versus Cal. Oregon still has a chance to keep the North Division title hopes alive, but they need the Cardinal to lose to get there.
