National perception of the Pac-12 is down, and perhaps rightfully so since the conference hasn’t had a true College Football Playoff contender in weeks.

Still, after this weekend, the conference will be sending nine teams to bowl games, assuming all schools accept their bowl invitations.

So while there might not be quite as much at stake here as elsewhere around the country, there’s still a lot to play for.

Washington State can win its first-ever Pac-12 North title with a win in the Apple Cup.

A win or loss in the Territorial Cup might determine whether Todd Graham keeps his job at Arizona State.

In two matchups — UCLA-California, Colorado-Utah — the winner earns bowl eligibility, the loser’s season is over.

USC is on bye (finally), but that also means Washington and Arizona can play spoiler, and Stanford can put a dent in Notre Dame’s playoff hopes.

Hope is lost for some, but not all, and it should still be a fun weekend of college football.

Without further adieu, here’s our final regular season edition of the Pac-12 Power Rankings. As always, voted on by Star reporters Michael Lev, Zack Rosenblatt and Justin Spears.
