Our final full slate of games this season. All lines courtesy of VegasInsider.com. Pick for the Apple Cup will come in a separate post.
Oregon State (6-5, 4-4 in Pac-12) at Oregon (9-2, 6-2), 4 p.m., FOX Sports 1 (UO by 23) -- It's a Civil War matchup between two teams that looked very much like they did not want to play last week. Oregon could probably beat OSU with its eyes closed, though. The pick: Oregon 38, OSU 20.
Never miss a local story.
Colorado (4-7, 1-7) at Utah (4-7, 1-7), 11 a.m., Pac-12 Networks (Utah by 17) -- Utah by 17? Really? Well, OK. The pick: Utah 34, Colorado 20.
Notre Dame (8-3) at Stanford (9-2, 7-2), 4 p.m., FOX (Stanford by 14) -- Cardinal have already locked up a spot in the Pac-12 championship game, but must first dispatch of the Irish. Which they should, especially playing at home before all of those rabid, rabid Stanford fans. The pick: Stanford 31, Notre Dame 10.
UCLA (8-3, 5-3) at USC (9-3, 6-2), 5 p.m., ABC (USC by 4) -- The Pac-12 South race is already decided, but as far as bowl destinations go, this rivalry game still carries a lot of significance -- the winner probably ends up in El Paso for the Sun Bowl, though you wonder if the Trojans would be welcome back there. Regardless, USC has a chance to win 10 games in a season that looked lost from the beginning, and I expect they'll take advantage. The pick: USC 28, UCLA 21.
Arizona (7-4, 4-4) at Arizona State (9-2, 7-1), 6:30 p.m., Pac-12 Networks (ASU by 12) -- This game had the makings of a blowout about seven days ago, but with Arizona coming off an impressive stomping of Oregon, it's hard to know what to expect. Especially with ASU playing with the knowledge that the Pac-12 South championship is already in the bag. Still, rivalry game and all that. And the Sun Devils are playing better football than anyone in the conference right now. So we'll go with the home team. The pick: ASU 41, Arizona 30.
Last week: 3-3 straight-up, 2-4 against the spread. Season: 66-18, 46-37.
