Week Two Pac-10 Picks

Predictions for Week Two of the Pac-10 football season:

  • Oregon beats Tennessee - 28-21. Much closer than many predict, but the better team wins.
  • Washington beats Syracuse - 24-10. Locker and Dawgs get it together at home against a jet lagged and not-that-good of a team.
  • WSU beats Montana State - 21-10. If WSU can't pull this out, it's really going to be a bad season.
  • Cal beats Colorado - 31-17. I think Cal wins this one at home.
  • Arizona beats The Citadel - 45-3. Cupcake opponent for the second week running nets a 2-0 start for the 'Cats.
  • Arizona State beats Northern Arizona - 27-13. A solid win, but not dominating.
  • USC beats Virginia - 31-10. USC is just better. 
  • Stanford beats UCLA - 34-13. Despite this one being in L.A., The Cardinal bludgeons the UCLA defense and the Bruin "O" just isn't that good.
  • Oregon State - not playing. Getting ready for Louisville the following week.
Well, that's a clean sweep by the Pac-10 if I'm right. That makes me feel a little hesitant on these. Potentially the Oregon, Washington and Stanford games might yield upsets, but taken on a game-by-game basis a Pac-10 weekend is the way it looks to me.
