College Football 2012 Schedule: It's moving week atop the Pac-12 North

Doug Pensinger

The three-week round robin atop the Pac-12 North begins Saturday.

The Cal Golden Bears, at 3-7 and in the midst of a three-game losing streak, are faced with the task of stopping the Oregon Ducks on Saturday as the Ducks continue their quest for an undefeated season.

The game will have little impact on the standings if Oregon wins. But if the Golden Bears score the upset at home, Oregon would fall into a first-place tie in the Pac-12 North.

With whom would the Ducks fall into a tie? The answer is: the winner of the Saturday game between the Stanford Cardinal and the Oregon State Beavers.

Stanford is at 7-2 this season and 5-1 in the Pac-12, and Oregon State is at 7-1 and 5-1 in the league. The two play Saturday at Stanford, and the winner will be no more than one game out with two games to play (and both teams still have Oregon on the schedule).

The San Jose State Spartans will try to extend its three-game winning streak in a road game against the New Mexico State Aggies.

Oregon State Beavers at Stanford Cardinal (12 p.m. PT, Fox)

San Jose State Spartans at New Mexico State Aggies (12:30 p.m. PT, AggieVision)

Oregon Ducks at Cal Golden Bears (7:30 p.m. PT, ESPN)
