Picking the Pac - Week Five

Arizona State at Oregon State

The Sun Devils could have beaten the Ducks last weekend if they hadn't made so many mistakes. This week they head out on the road against an Oregon State team that is very hungry for victory.

Washington State at UCLA

This is a pretty big spread when you consider that UCLA doesn't have much of an offense. WSU of course doesn't have much of a defense and they can't stop the run. Look for the Bruins to keep running the ball until they don't have to. WSU's offense is improving but they won't pick up much against a UCLA defense which stymied Texas.

Stanford at Oregon

It is only week five and the Pac 10 game of the year is already upon us. The Cardinal are a no nonsense squad that is physical on both sides of the ball. Oregon has a lot more speed, and are playing at home. Those will be the two deciding factors in this game.
