It was Throwback week for two of the Pac. Oregon and Utah pulled out some "old" looks. Unfortunately, most of Oregon's history includes losing seasons, so maybe it was appropriate to harken back to 1916? I'm sure the Huskies appreciated looking back at least 12 years! Utah reused the red and white throwbacks that they wore last October. Besides these teams, the rest of the Pac was pretty much business as usual, with a fair amount of gray thrown in, and a very funerial Stanford Blackout! OSU went full pumpkin as well in their win over Cal.

This was the first full week of all-Pac-12 play, so half the teams were home and the other half away. Last week there were many mono-colored looks, but this week was a bit more normal. Nobody (including Oregon) did anything weird! The closest was WSU that did pull out its mono "anthracite" uniform against Oregon. This appears to be a darker gray than their "normal" school-color gray that pops up a lot.
Both Arizona and Utah went "Whiteout" paired with the usual road whites that Stanford usually wears. Utah continued its trend of fancy helmets (last week it was custom artwork) this week it's the chrome logo on white.
The North was where the good colors were. Both Cal and Washington rocked the classic home colors, while both Oregon schools did unusually "normal" and colorful representations of their distinctive school-colored helmets and pants paired with white jersey. And both helmets had cute critters with the happy duck and the beaver. This should be the standard road uniforms for both these schools.
The South felt like a black-and-white movie with the only teams sporting ANY color were the LA schools in their classic home colors.
