PHOENIX (AP) -- The Pac-12 has four teams already bowl eligible, including two that could play in BCS bowls.

After that, it's a jumble of teams still needing two wins or more, leaving the conference in a scramble to fill all its bowl allotments.

No. 4 Stanford and sixth-ranked Oregon could both play in BCS bowls, possibly even the national title game. No. 22 Arizona State and Washington are bowl eligible as well.

But for the Pac-12 to fill its seven bowl spots, three of its teams will have to play well down the stretch.

UCLA, Cal and Utah need to win two of their final four games, while Washington State needs three of four.

Arizona, at 2-6, would have to win its final four games to become bowl eligible.
