Arizona at Southern California
The Wildcats have been terrible on both sides of the ball this season. This is definitely a major rebuilding year for a program that has been near the top of the conference over the past few seasons. The losing will continue on the road against USC who is coming off a decisive loss to Arizona State. The Trojans don't seem to have much spark under Lane Kiffin but they will have no problem with Arizona.

Washington State at Colorado
The Cougars tanked it in the second half on the road against a San Diego State team that really had no business beating them. If they lose this week I can say with almost a complete certainty that Paul Wulff will be fired at the end of the season. Colorado isn't very good but they almost knocked off California at home which should be a big red flag for Cougar fans. This one will be close but I think WSU's offense has just a little more spark.

Oregon State at Arizona State
The Beavers aren't going to survive this trip to the desert. ASU isn't a great team but they have proven themselves to be the best team in the south division so far this season. Oregon State is a bad team with a quarterback controversy going on...not a good thing. On the bright side we all know the Beavers will get better but this isn't the week that they rise up and surprise.

UCLA at Stanford
The recent Stanford teams have reminded me a bit of some of the Husky squads from the 1990's. The Cardinal seem to be solid on both sides of the ball. They just wear teams down and pull away in the second half. UCLA is a team that lacks motivation and a competent quarterback. I don't think I have ever seen a team quit on Rick but this one is threatening to do exactly that.
