Quick picks for this week’s Pac-12 games…
Oregon vs. Missouri State in Eugene. MSU ain’t LSU. They’re not even Nevada. This could get ugly quick. Only way Ducks "lose" is if one of their players gets hurt. Ducks 56-13.
UW vs. Nebraska in Lincoln. Yes, UW beat the Cornhuskers in the Holiday Bowl. But they were also trampled by Nebraska last season in Seattle. This game is in Lincoln. The “Ns” win 31-21.
WSU vs. San Diego State in San Diego. Cougs are 2-0 with warm ups against inferior teams. They are probably better a tad better than SDSU and will win 29-17.
Oregon State vs. UCLA in Corvallis. Coming off a loss to an FCS team at home and an epic butt whooping by Wisconsin on the road, the Beavs are in bad shape. They lose again. UCLA wins a yawner 13-10.
Stanford vs. Arizona in Tucson. After two weeks of beating up on cupcakes, Stanford gets a jump up in competition. But not that much. Stanford 38-10.
ASU vs. Illinois in Champaign, IL. ASU is 2-0, but they won against an FCS team and then blew a 14 point lead to Missouri at home in Tempe - eventually winning in OT. I think they are upset on the road in Big-10 country. Illini win 26-19.
Colorado vs. Colorado State in Boulder. Buffs seem to lose this game annually. They do again. 24-21.
Utah vs. BYU in Provo. In-state rivals clash and BYU comes out on top 17-13.
USC vs. Syracuse in L.A. Trojans are better and therefore they will prevail - 31-13.
Cal vs. Presbyterian at Berkley. Presbyterian? What? Really Cal? Well, we all know how this will end. Cal wins big, big, big - 65-10.
