A couple of Pac-12 stars have a chance to put themselves into the Heisman mix on Saturday night when No. 7 Stanford visits No. 20 Oregon. Herbert has put up nice numbers in the first three weeks of the season, with 10 touchdown passes, no interceptions and 10.4 yards per attempt. He is not quite at the Tua level, but he’s not that far off. (AP Photo/Thomas Boyd, File)

AP Top 25 Podcast: Pac-12 in spotlight with Stanford-Oregon

September 19, 2018 - 11:28 am

No. 7 Stanford and No. 20 Oregon is the highlight game of the weekend in college football, but it's hard to assess the Ducks.

On the latest AP Top 25 College Football Podcast , guest Chantel Jennings previews the Pac-12's big game and gives the back story on Ducks star quarterback Justin Herbert. The Ducks are 3-0 but have not played a competitive opponent. So it's hard to tell if they are ready to break a two-game losing streak against Bryce Love and the Cardinal.

Jennings and AP's Ralph Russo focus on the Pac-12, looking Southern California's problems and who — if anybody — is good in the Pac-12 South. Plus, which struggling first-year coach is off to the most worrisome start.
