From Tempe -- Did you get a wink of sleep last night? Me neither. Not with Pac-12 basketball finally about to begin. We've got our conference power rankings and a look at how the conference has returned to the college basketball spotlight. The Cougars will get a taste of just how good this conference in during their Arizona swing. While the Wildcats may be No. 1, the Sun Devils are no slouches, either.

The Arizona Daily Star takes a look at the conference's bests and worsts.

In football news, Stanford was the ninth and final Pac-12 team to play its bowl game, losing the Rose Bowl in dramatic fashion to Michigan State. With the loss, the Pac-12 finishes a respectable but not exemplary 6-3 in its bowl games. Thanks, Stanford.
