With the Pac-10 race at the head of the stretch, this week's picks:
No. 9 Arizona State at UCLA. Tough spot for Bruins QB to make debut. ASU, 37-17.
No. 12 Southern California at No. 24 California. Bears generally match up well against Trojans, so a slight nod to the home field. Cal, 27-24.
Stanford at Washington State. Oddly enough, the road team has won last seven games in this series. WSU, 35-20.
Washington at Oregon State. Rain predicted, which could make this a running game. If so, I can see the OSU running game having better success against the UW run defense than vice versa. OSU, 31-17.
Last week: 5-0.
