Despite Oregon and UCLA being on bye weeks, Week 7 in the Pac-12 produced a bunch of wacky results and great performances. The conference got flipped on its head as shootout broke out in Salt Lake City. Here are the five main takeaways from a crazy weekend in the conference. Utah’s Unbelievable Resolve Last week, the Utes saw their slim College Football Playoff hopes disappear with a 42-32 loss to the then-No. 18 UCLA Bruins.

Here are some of the biggest takeaways from this weekend within the conference. UCLA’s the Top Team in the Pac-12 It has been a rapid rise for the UCLA Bruins over the past two weeks.
