PHOENIX (AP) -- A few teams in the Pac-12 have made progress this season, adding depth to the conference.

With each passing week, though, it's becoming more apparent that Oregon and Stanford are still way ahead of everyone else.

Steamrolling their way through the conference, the fourth-ranked Cardinal and seventh-ranked Ducks are headed toward a big showdown on Nov. 12 that some are calling the real Pac-12 championship game.

Arizona State and Washington have had impressive turnarounds this season, but both suffered lopsided losses to the conference's top two teams -- the Sun Devils by Oregon two weeks ago, the Huskies by Stanford last week.
