USC at Colorado
I actually feel sorry for Jon Embree and Colorado. The Buffs need multiple great recruiting classes to become competitive again. USC is hitting its stride right now and I like how the Kiffin's are coaching the team. Matt Barkley and company are going to have a field day in Boulder.

Stanford at Oregon State
The Beavers have been up and down all season and this is definitely going to be one of those serious down weeks. Stanford is going to roll all over these guys.

Washington State at California
The Cougars played pretty well last week against the Ducks while the Bears folded against UCLA. Conventional wisdom is telling me to pick Cal at home but WSU does have the capability of beating this team.

Utah at Arizona
The Wildcats are a scrappy bunch that keeps fighting very week. Utah's offense can't keep up with these guys even if they are able to slow the UA offense it down a bit. The only way Utah wins this is if their defense can score some points and hold UA to three's.

Arizona State at UCLA
Rick and his team were all but given up for dead last week until the old Slickster pulled the "Burn the Boats" speech out of his back pocket. How do you follow that one up this week against a defense that is very capable of snuffing your running game?

Oregon at Washington
Vegas - Oregon by 16 1/2 - John B will reveal his prediction on Friday.
