Well, once again I've started the week with a loss. Last week I underestimated Oregon State, and this week I overestimated them. (Or perhaps I overestimated USC and underestimated Utah.)
Anyway, here's the rest:
No. 23 Oregon at No. 9 Southern California. Running was enough vs. Cougars, but it won't be vs. hyper-focused Trojans. SC, 37-24.
Arizona State at California. Elimination game for Rose Bowl the loser's dreams. Cal, 30-20.
Never miss a local story.
Stanford at Notre Dame. Irish have won six straight in the series. N.D., 31-28.
Washington State at UCLA. This is that rare game that each of these teams probably thinks it can win. Bruins, 34-14.
Washington at Arizona. Visiting team has won four straight in this series, and Tucson was the site of Tyrone Willingham's first Pac-10 win as UW coach. However, these Wildcats figure to score far more than Locker-less Huskies can match. Arizona, 47-17.
Last week: 3-1.
UW games: 3-1.
