No. 6 Southern California at Arizona. Wildcats have won six straight at home. If they make it seven, it's time to take them seriously again. USC, 38-20.
Oregon at Arizona State. Ducks have won three straight in what has been series of streaks. If they make it four, ASU -- once thought of as a Rose Bowl contender -- suddenly gets into trouble for any bowl at all. UO, 37-28.
UCLA at California. Home team has won last eight in series. Both have been pretty up and down, but the Bears should have enough at home against a rival.Cal, 32-17.
Notre Dame at Washington. Huskies' collapse has cooled once-sizzling Weis-Willingham subplot. So what we're left with are a couple of rebuilding teams, with the Irish appearing well further along. Although not to any degree that puts them out of the Huskies' reach. Notre Dame was tested at home by awful San Diego State and lost on the road at Michigan State and North Carolina. In fact, they haven't won on the road yet ... although the same was true of the Oregon State Beavers until they arrived at Husky Stadium. Irish, 32-28.
Never miss a local story.
Last week: 3-1.
UW games: 5-1.
