After a week of pure madness, not just around the country, but in the Pac-12 as well, some teams in the conference look to rebound, but I don't expect the madness to slow down anytime soon. This week around the Pac-12, it is all conference games, with a couple games that could have major division title implications.
The biggest matchup is between Oregon and UCLA in the Rose Bowl. Both coming off losses, this is a major game for both teams to stay in the playoff conversation, as well as the Pac-12 championship race. I'm the only one picking UCLA, but I see Oregon's offensive line being a serious liability, and with Myles Jack and Eric Kendricks I think the Bruins will get to Marcus Marriota often. I also think USC will get Arizona, as does Alex. I believe Arizona has been dodging some bullets so far this season, and it's bound to catch up with them, and the talent of the Trojans is what can stop the Wildcats perfect season. Steven goes out and picks Washington to beat Cal, but I just don't see Washington having the firepower to keep up offensively with Cal. And the majority picks Stanford to beat WSU, I just think Stanford is too tough defensively for Washington State and will hold down the Cougars.
Here are our picks for this week:
|WSU @ Stanford||Oregon @ UCLA||Washington @ Cal||USC @ Arizona||Record|
It all kicks off tonight with WSU taking on Stanford in Palo Alto at the Farm, and it's now a race to see which two teams will meet at Levi's Stadium in the Pac-12 Championship Game.
