Block U Pac-12 Picks: Week Three

New, 9 comments

We pick all the Pac-12 games in week three!

Harry How

Week three is a tough one for Utes fans, because the Utes are in the middle of a bye week. Frankly, it is a bit of a snoozer week across the conference. There is the one conference matchup between ASU and Colorado in Boulder, which will likely end badly for the Buffs. After this week, most of the Pac-12 teams will be jumping into conference play for the remainder of the season.

Wyoming @ Oregon Illinois @ Washington Army @ Stanford UCLA @ Texas USC @ BC Portland St @ Washington St Arizona St @ Colorado Nevada @ Arizona Record
Shane Oregon Washington Stanford UCLA USC Washington St Arizona St Arizona 18-5
Steven Oregon Washington Stanford Texas USC Washington St Arizona St Arizona 18-5
Adia Oregon Washington Stanford UCLA USC Washington St Arizona St Arizona 18-5
Alex Oregon Washington Stanford UCLA USC Washington St Arizona St Arizona 19-4
Daniel Oregon Washington Stanford UCLA USC Washington St Arizona St Nevada 17-6

Our picks are basically the same across the board, especially in the cross conference match ups. Steven steps out with his pick of Texas over UCLA, which after watching Texas suspend most of their team and getting thrashed by a certain team from Provo, is quite the prediction. Daniel also picked against the Conference of Champions in a Mountain West vs. Pac-12 matchup, with Nevada over Arizona. I could see that if the game was in Reno, but with the game in Tucson I don't see that happening. If it were to happen, it would be a big disappointment for the conference. A game to keep an eye on this weekend is Portland St at Washington St. Portland St is traditionally a good FCS program, and the Cougars are really struggling. It will be interesting to see if they can pull out of their early season tailspin.
