Pac-12 rewind: Perfection in L.A., WSU bounces back, Phillips shines, Stanford and Cal stumble and loads more from Week Five

Recapping the Pac-12 action in Week Five … Theme of the week: Blowouts The six games were decided by 8, 17, 18, 19, 23 and 26 points.

We cannot remember a weekend of conference play with so little drama. Theme of the season: L.A. success The Bruins and Trojans are 10-0 (combined), the only unbeaten teams in the conference and just two of 14 unbeatens in the Power Five. Are they for real?
