The Pac-12, as always, has been wild and weird so far this season, but a few things are at least unanimously understood.

The first being that Washington and Washington State are a step ahead of everybody else to this point in the season, that USC is right behind them and that Oregon State won’t be handing off the “Worst Team in the Pac-12” mantle anytime soon.

One more — for the first time since the Star started conducting this iteration of the Pac-12 Power Rankings last season, all three voters unanimously agreed on the placement of EVERY TEAM.

That never happens.

It probably just means we spend too much time together.

Anyway, here’s a look at this week's Pac-12 power rankings, as voted on by Star reporters Michael Lev, Zack Rosenblatt and sports producer Justin Spears.
