From Pullman -- There was only one Pac-12 football game this weekend and it was a big one. Stanford thrashed Arizona State to win the Pac-12 championship and secure a Rose Bowl berth. But just because the rest of the conference's teams weren't playing this weekend doesn't mean that there wasn't a lot of action that affected the teams. Texas lost, but Oklahoma won, increasing the likelihood of the Pac-12 getting two BCS teams. And the Heart of Dallas Bowl is more likely to take a Pac-12 team with Ohio State's loss.

The men's basketball team escaped Moscow with a win to continue their run of dominance over Idaho ... Colorado knocked off No. 6 Kansas, their former Big 12 rival, in a big win for the Pac-12 ... Arizona held off UNLV ... The Bruins fell to Missouri ... Utah stayed undefeated at home with a win over Fresno State.
