Picking the Pac - Week Two

Colorado at California

The Bears opened the season with a convincing win over Sacramento State which really doesn't give is us a good idea of how good a team they are. Colorado who opened with a 24-3 win over Colorado State and should be able to give them a better test. Colorado will make it interesting but I don't think that they have the talent to compete four quarters with Cal.

California 34 Colorado 17 - Vegas - Cal 8.5

Montana State at Washington State

If you are a Cougar fan you need to get to Pullman this Saturday because this may be the only game your team wins this year. I have to pick the Cougars but I think Montana State is going to keep it closer than Cougar fans would like.

Washington State 35 Montana State 24 - Vegas - No Line

Oregon at Tennessee

The Volunteers should give Oregon more of a game then New Mexico did last week. Just for the record - Oregon didn't have to punt once against New Mexico. Tennessee isn't back to full strength but they have enough team speed to make this game interesting. Knoxville isn't an easy place to play in so that is another factor in the Volunteers favor. All that being said Oregon is going to win this football game and they are going to beat the 12 point spread.

Oregon 38 Tennessee 17  - Vegas - Oregon 12

Northern Arizona at Arizona State

Arizona State attempts to go 2-0 this season in the Big Sky conference. Not a real step up in competition after drubbing Portland State last week.

The Citadel at Arizona

Another FCS school with a proud tradition lines up to get pummeled by a school from the state of Arizona for the right to take a good sized check back home.

Stanford at UCLA

The Pac 10 opener for both of these schools. Stanford is catching UCLA at the right time. The Bruins lack depth and experience on the offensive line. QB Kevin Prince is hurting and isn't close to being 100%.

Stanford 35 UCLA 10 - Vegas - Stanford by 6

Virginia at USC

Will the Trojan defense show up against Virginia? It should because the Cavaliers are terrible. I would pay more attention to the points that USC gives up as opposed to the points they score.
