Cal at Oregon
Cal is a solid 3-1 on the season, but have not faced anyone as good as Oregon. Oregon is also 3-1, but their lone loss is to No. 1 LSU. Supposedly the Ducks are going with a “throwback” jersey, but with their 4,345,267,195 uniform combinations, it could be a throwback to the last quarter. The Swoosh have had some scares Thursday in October, but this wont be one.
Oregon 48, Cal 24
Arizona State at Utah
I really don’t believe ASU is that great and looked ordinary in a road loss to Illinois. Utah is never an easy place to play, but if Washington can win there, so can the Poseidons. Then again, can anyone trust Brock Osweiler on the road? I keep going back and forth on this one, and can make a good argument with both.
Arizona State 33, Utah 28
Colorado at Stanford
Colorado went to Ohio State and were thumped. Palo Alto is not as tough an environment as Columbus, but the Cardinal are much better than the Buckeyes.
Stanford 45, Colorado 10
Washington State at UCLA
Washington State has played well, but a lot of that is due to the schedule. The Cougs have only played one team with a winning record, and that team, San Diego State, beat them 42-24. They did just earn a really nice road win at a mediocre Colorado team and although UCLA is a little bit better, they aren’t that superior to the Buffs. UCLA has two wins, but those two teams are a combined 2-7.
WSU 27, UCLA 20
Arizona at Oregon State
Arizona has played awful against really good teams, while Oregon State has just played awful. Oregon State usually plays better in October, but will it be enough? I think the Cats get the win, but it will be ugly.
Arizona 41, Oregon State 34
