Another solid week, going 5-0 straight up and 4-1 ATS, leaving me 8-1 and 7-2 respectively. This week, Cal and U-Dub are off and the Pac-10 matchups are not that intriguing.
USC 30 Arizona State 10 (USC by 27): What was a battle of the backups is just now a mismatch. That said, ASU has held Georgia to 27 and Cal to 24. The Sun Devils won’t score a lot of points, but they won’t give up a lot of big plays either.
Oregon 31 UCLA 17 (Oregon by 17): I’m still not sold on the Ducks. They’re 4-2 and with average quarterback play, they’d be at least 5-1. Even worse is their vaunted secondary that has struggled thus far. Oregon will win, but UCLA will be ready for the Ducks.
Oregon State 41 Washington State 10 (Oregon State by 30): Wazzu had an American Idol competition for their third string QB. No, really.
Stanfurd 27 Arizona 24 (Arizona by 6): This is not a bad Arizona team, but their schedule thus far has been extremely week, including a loss to New Mexico. The Furd will present the toughest test thus far for the Wildcats. If they’re for real, they win this game. Preblem for them, they aren’t for real.
