Washington pulled one of the biggest upsets of the year in conference play, knocking off Oregon inside Autzen Stadium to snap the Ducks’ 23-game home winning streak.

The Ducks still control their own fate to get to the Pac-12 Championship game, but now are on thin ice after suffering their first conference loss.

UCLA’s fate is arguably in a worse state of events after a SHOCKING upset—also at home—to a 20-point underdog in Arizona.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I look at each team’s result from the weekend and gauge how each fan base should be feeling as we look ahead to the ensuing week.

Oregon appears at the bottom of that list for the first time since their Week 1 loss to Georgia, while Washington makes a return to the top of the list in terms of how their fans are feeling after beating their rival on the road.

I go through the rest of the Pac-12 teams’ Monday morning moods including why Oregon State surpassed expectations (while Cal fell short of theirs) and how Washington State could keep riding a second-half wave to a 7- or 8-win regular season under Jake Dickert.

Arizona fans are riding high with two home games left this season, and now a very real chance at bowl eligibility.
