New, 8 comments

We make our picks for week two of the college football season for all the Pac-12 teams.

Week two for teams in the Pac-12 is a big one. The big out of conference matchup between Michigan State and Oregon is one of the national headliners, with both teams in the top-10. A big in conference battle between USC and Stanford kicks off conference play. Also, can Wazzou bounce back against the Mountain West's Nevada? We make our picks for all the Pac-12 games below!

Fresno @ Utah Arizona @ UTSA Washington St @ Nevada Sac St @ Cal CU @ UMass E Wash @ Washington USC @ Stanford Michigan St @ Oregon Arizona St @ New Mexico Memphis @ UCLA Oregon State @ Hawaii
Shane Utah Arizona Washington St Cal CU Washington
Stanford Oregon ASU UCLA Oregon St
Steven Utah Arizona Nevada Cal UMass Washington
Stanford Oregon ASU UCLA Oregon St
Adia Utah Arizona Washington St Cal CU Washington
Stanford Michigan St ASU UCLA Oregon St
Alex Utah Arizona Washington St Cal CU Washington
Stanford Oregon ASU UCLA Hawaii
Daniel Utah Arizona Washington St Cal CU E Wash
Stanford Oregon ASU UCLA Oregon St

There are some upset picks this week! Alex picks Hawaii to beat Oregon State, and after the Beavers week one performance, that may be an accurate pick. Daniel goes out and picks Eastern Washington to beat Chris Peterson in his Husky Stadium debut, again, after UW's first week performance, that may not be a reach. And Adia goes black hat and picks the Big-10 team to go into Pac-12 territory and win, with MSU beating the Ducks in Eugene! With the way MSU plays, similar to Stanford, and Oregon's history against that style, that may be accurate... but I still see it being a Ducks win. And Steven has little faith in the bottom teams in our Pac-12 Power Poll, Wazzou and CU, and picks both to lose.

The interesting thing is that nobody picked USC to beat Stanford in Palo Alto. It will be fun to see if Stanford has reloaded on defense against USC's skill positions, and if Kevin Hogan can move the ball against the Trojan defense.

What are your picks for week two? Are any of our picks crazy?
