UCLA at Washington
This Thursday night game in Seattle which will be broadcast nationally on ESPN was originally supposed to feature Jake Locker and his Heisman campaign. Those hopes went down the drain early in the season but Washington still has the goal of qualifying for a bowl game left on the table.
I like Washington in this one and I also figure that Jake Locker won't miss starting in his last home game as a Washington Husky. UCLA has had problems on offense all season and this game won't be the exception.

USC at Oregon State
Two disappointing losses to conference bottom dwellers in a row have the Beavers scrambling for bowl eligibility. USC has established itself as the scrappy number three team in the conference. The Beavers have been a tough draw for the Trojans in recent years. Less is on the line this season but expect this one to be pretty close.

Stanford at California
The Bears have been tough at home and atrocious on the road. The Cardinal have been consistent all season but had a scare against Arizona State last weekend. Anything can happen in a rival contest and this should be a pretty close game. I think the advantage Stanford has at QB gives them the win in this one.
