Pac-12 Predictions: Week 7

Overall: [33-15] Last week: [5-0]

I told you Cal was gonna win didn’t I? A win against the Cougars this week will give Cal a little momentum before the Big Game.

Arizona St. 42 Colorado 14: The way ASU has been playing, they should roll by Colorado.

Utah 28 – UCLA 31: UCLA will be hungry for a win after their upset loss against Cal.

Stanford 23 – Notre Dame 21: Huge OOC game for Stanford and the Pac-12. In my opinion, Notre Dame is overrated and the Stanford D will show up after giving up a ton against Arizona.

Oregon St 13 – BYU 7: This was a tough decision. With Mannion out, the Beavers will have to rely on there defense. Good thing that D is darn good.

USC 32 – Washington 27: Sark knows the Trojans in and out but Matt Barkley will show up for this matchup.

California 35 – Washington St. 10: It’s supposed to rain this Saturday over at Washington State. Look for Cal to run all over the opposing defense.

Jason A.W.’s Pac-12 Predictions: Week 6

Overall: [28-15] Last week: [2-3]
All conference games left except for a couple of games against Notre Dame and one more against BYU.

USC 31 – Utah 21: This was penciled in as the trap game in the game for the USC. If USC hadn’t lost I would be tempted to pick the upset, but I believe there’s more urgency for the Trojans now.

Arizona 17  – Stanford 23: Stanford bounces back against Arizona. Look for the running game to get back on track.

Washington St. 17 – Oregon St. 24: Oregon State is in the top 25 and will look to improve its ranking with a win against the Cougs.

UCLA 31 – California 35: UCLA hasn’t won in Berkeley since 1998 believe it or not. Outside of 2009, this has been a series dominated by the home team. Let’s hope it stays that way.

Washington 17  – Oregon 55: Oregon probably still holds grudges for Toshgate so expect to see the score run up a little.

Pac-12 Predictions: Week 6

Overall: [28-15] Last week: [3-2]

The Pac-12 looks really deep this year. Unfortunately, our Cal Bears are at the bottom of that pile.

USC 32 – Utah 24: Utah will start strong at home but the Trojans will be back in national championship form.

Arizona 13  – Stanford 33: After a very disappointing defeat against Washington, Stanford will be out for blood in front of their home crowd.

Washington St. 10 – Oregon St. 27: Oregon State is looking damn good while Washington State has a long way to go.

UCLA 21 – California 45: Tedford finally wakes up and uses Bigelow who blows up for 150 yards. #GoBears!

Washington 17  – Oregon 35: Will Tosh Lupoi bring over the fake injury strategy over to Washington?

Jason A.W.’s Pac-12 Predictions: Week 5

Wasn’t able to post picks last week since I was out of town. But I went 3-2. Didn’t see UCLA losing and Wazzou losing.


Overall: [26-12] Last week: [3-2]


Stanford 35 – Washington 28: Stanford is for real. It’s more than just Luck and Harbaugh as they will prove

Arizona State 14 – California 41: [D’Amato with the Game Winning FG! Tedford needs this win or his seat will be scorching] – My buddy Shawn is reliving 2009 when Cal squeezed out a 2 point victory on Halloween

UCLA 42 – Colorado 17: UCLA will win and bounce back.

Oregon State 17 – Arizona 38: Arizona is a lot more explosive than they showed on national TV in Eugene last week.

Oregon 42 – Washington State 24: Ugh, when will Oregon finally play a meaningful game.

Pac-12 Predictions: Week 5

Overall: [25-13] Last week: [2-3]

Seems like I couldn’t pick anything last week. Well, I blame that pirate Leach for that. This week starts early with a great matchup between Stanford and Washington. I want both to lost bought unfortunately that’s not how sports work.

Stanford 35 – Washington 21: I don’t see how Washington can win against a tough and aggressive team like Stanford, much like how they got whooped over at LSU.

Arizona State 28 – California 31: D’Amato with the Game Winning FG! Tedford needs this win or his seat will be scorching.

UCLA 42 – Colorado 17: Sure the Buffs showed some heart against Washington State, but it was Washington State. They’ll have no luck against a Bruins team out for blood.

Oregon State 24 – Arizona 21: That Oregon State D looks damn good and Arizona QB Matt Scott is banged up after their loss to Oregon.

Oregon 52 – Washington State 7: Everyone knew that Oregon has an amazing offense, but now their D is unstoppable. Cougars have no chance against the Ducks.

Pac-12 Predictions: Week 3

Overall: [23-10] Last week: [8-2]

Here comes the Pac-12 season! USC-Stanford officially started the league games last week with a bang. Let’s hope for more fireworks this weekend.

Oregon St. 14 – UCLA 38: I was tempted to pick Oregon State because they had a week of rest and Oregon State beat Wisconsin (though they don’t look that great this season), but UCLA just looks too good.

Colorado 17 – Washington St. 42: Colorado could quite possibly go 0-12 this season.

California 35 – USC 32: The Trojans will be hungry for this win and they match up very well against the Bears, but I never bet against my own team.

Utah 27 – Arizona St. 30: This is a really tough one, but I’m going to have to go with the Sun Devils over a Utes team with a banged up John White and no Jordan Wynn.

Arizona 27 – Oregon 52: You may not know this but Oregon actually has a very solid defense, and also they are pretty much unbeatable at home.

Jason A.W.’s Pac-12 Predictions: Week 3

Overall: [16-7] Last week: [8-4]

Washington St. 51 – UNLV 30: Wazzu will win again this year.
California 22 – Ohio St 34: I don’t think Cal wins, but I believe we hang close and cover the 16.5 point spread.
Tennessee Tech 13 – Oregon 52: Nobody will notice their defense is missing a few key guys.
Portland St. 19 – Washington 52: Might be the Dawg’s only win for a while given their upcoming schedule.
Arizona St 42 – Missouri 40: ASU won last year and it would be nice to get on the scoreboard against the SEC
USC 32 – Stanford 15: Stanford has won 4 out of the last 5 but I believe USC has too much talent this year.
Colorado 29 – Fresno St 27: Buffaloes got to win some time.
BYU 21 – Utah 38: Utes very tough to beat at Rice Eccles.
S. Carolina St. 16 – Arizona 54: Rich Rod flexes his muscle again.
Houston 37 – UCLA 42: Bruins have split the 2 for 1 series with the Cougars, but should be able to pull out a victory here.

Pac-12 Predictions: Week 3

Overall: [15-8] Last week: [7-5]

How about them upsets last week?! Most of the Pac-12 looked pretty good expect Utah, Colorado, and our beloved Cal Bears. This week Stanford and USC kickoff the Pac-12 Conference games.

Washington St. 31 – UNLV 10: Tuel is out for WSU but Halliday is just as capable. Also, UNLV plain sucks so the Cougars should be able to roll by them.
California 27 – Ohio St 23: Why not? THE BEAR WILL NEVER QUIT! THE BEAR WILL NEVER DIE!
Tennessee Tech 17 – Oregon 72: Cover your eyes! This is going to be a massacre.
Portland St. 14 – Washington 42: After the Huskies get a huge beat down by LSU, they get a nice cupcake get before facing Pac-12 foes.
Arizona St 32 – Missouri 30: Yup, that’s right. I’m calling the upset in SEC territory.
USC 28 – Stanford 35: David Shaw always leaves his best trick in the bag for the Trojans.
Colorado 21 – Fresno St 27: I don’t believe in the Buffs anymore. They are currently shaming the Pac-12.
BYU 21 – Utah 38: The Utes may not have Wynn anymore and John White is questionable, but they are a tough team at home, nonetheless.
S. Carolina St. 16 – Arizona 34: Arizona is looking really really good right now and that offense with Matt Scott under shotgun looks quite efficient.
Houston 17 – UCLA 42: Without Case Keenum, Houston has no chance against the Bruins. RB Franklin of UCLA may again have a 200+ yard performance.

Pac-12 Predictions: Week 2

Overall: [8-3]

What a horrible week last week. Cal, Washington State, and Colorado just sucked out there. Stanford barely won their game and it seems like USC and Oregon are set to go to the Pac-12 championship game.

Utah 32 – Utah State 17: Utah might come out slow because it’s not a home game but John White should be able to run all over them most of the game.
Sacramento State 23 – Colorado 27: After last week’s horrible showing, Colorado will have a tough time against Sac State, but they should have enough talent to come out with a victory.
Southern Utah 10 – California 52: Let’s put Nevada in the past and beat the crap out of this FCS team. If Cal loses I’m just going to cry in a corner.
Eastern Washington 20 – Washington State 27 : Eastern Washington isn’t that bad of a FCS team but Jeff Tuel may have a better feel for his offense in his second week of commanding the Mike Leach offense.
USC 45 – Syracuse 10: It’s an away game for the Trojans but they have way too much talent to lose this one.
Wisconsin 30 – Oregon State 17: Unfortunately, this will be the Beaver’s first game because of Hurricane Isaac. Wisconsin should be able to run all over Oregon State but the Beavers have been known to pull off big upsets at home.
Fresno State 10 – Oregon 62: Oregon is just too good for the Bulldogs. DeAnthony Thomas will be showing off his Heisman pose all day.
Washington 14 – LSU 42: Having a tiger at practice doesn’t help you play defense, unless that tiger is mauling your opponent.
Nebraska 35 – UCLA 32: I really want to pick an upset here but I just don’t see how UCLA can defend against Nebraska.
Oklahoma State 45 – Arizona 28: Oklahoma State’s offense looked unstoppable last week even though it was against a lowly FCS team.
Illinois 21 – Arizona State 35: This will be a tough game for both teams but the Sun Devils will grind this one out for the victory.
Duke 17 – Stanford 28: The Cardinals will get a together this time and will likely have a solid showing.

Jason A.W.’s Pac-12 Predictions: Week 1

Hmmm not a  lot of exciting games I’d say 11-1 is an absolute must. But I’ll copy Shawn and go 12-0!

  • Northern Colorado 6 – Utah 28: Jordan Wynn should have an easy comeback debut
  • UCLA 28 – Rice 12: Let the Brett Hundley and Jim Mora Jr. era begin!
  • Washington State 43 – BYU 32: I hope Wazzu can stop someone on defense. BYU has 3 Pac-12 games this year. This is probably the biggest statement game for the conference this week.
  • Northern Arizona 12 – Arizona State 41: Arizona mandates ASU and Arizona swap playing Northern Arizona every year.
  • San Jose State 10 – Stanford 38: The post Andrew Luck era begins with an easy win against probably the worst team in FBS play.
  • Nevada 17 – California 31: Remember Reno 2010!
  • Nicholls State 24 – Oregon State 27: Hopefully Oregon State isn’t looking ahead to Wisconsin again this year.
  • Colorado State 20 – Colorado 24: Neutral site game, I’m glad this rivalry still holds.
  • Hawaii 3 – USC 42: Does it seem as if USC plays Hawaii almost every freaking year?
  • Toledo 21 – Arizona 41: The rubber match of a 3 game series which Arizona has won twice including most recently at Toledo two years ago.
  • San Diego State 21 – Washington 35: SDSU probably went below the radar before last season’s thrilling bowl game, but Washington probably has too much offense.
  • Arkansas State 10 – Oregon 70: Too bad Oregon wasn’t playing Arkansas and Tennessee instead of Arkansas State and Tennessee Tech. Everybody loses. Keep in mind Georgia backed out of a home-home series against the Ducks.
