Week six of Pac 12 play features five key inner conference match-ups.
Arizona State at California - Cal needs to beat the Devils to keep their sinking season relevant. The Devils need a solid win on the road to let USC know they are a contender. Cal is overdue for a win but inadequate play at QB will continue to hold them back. Vegas - Bears by 2 1/2 - JB Picks - ASU 31 Cal 28
UCLA at Colorado - This won't be a pretty game. The Bruins are obviously favored by a bundle but the Buffs are coming off the high that only beating Washington State can give you. Unfortunately that high is similar to the one you get by smoking bath salts and proceeding to perform a cannibalistic act on an unsuspecting stranger. Vegas - Bruins by 20 1/2 - JB Picks - UCLA 38 Colorado 14
Oregon State at Arizona - This is a big time road test for the Beavers. Can they stop the Wildcat offense on their home turf? Can the Wildcat offense quit stopping itself? Vegas likes Zona but have they seen OSU play defense? I think the Beavers are for real. Vegas - Cats by 3 - JB Picks - Oregon State 24 Arizona 17
Oregon at Washington State - If you like points early and often this will be the game for you. Even though the game is being played in Seattle don't expect the Cougars to show up ready to play. Too tough to bounce back after a numbing loss to Colorado.Vegas - Ducks by 29 - JB Picks - Oregon 70 Washington State 0
