Jason A.W.’s Pac-12 Predictions: Week 10

[Overall predictions]: 48-11 [The Week Before]: 6-0

USC 38 – Colorado 17: Carson Palmer’s Heisman campaign began here in 2002.

Stanford 48 – Oregon State 20: Trap game? Probably not.

Washington State 24 – California 32: Seems as if WSU and ASU are the only schools Cal has been able to beat consistently beat lately.

Utah 28 – Arizona 37: Utah and Colorado’s debut in the Pac-12 has been rather ugly.

Arizona State 38 – UCLA 27: Sparky seems to be the Pac-12 South representative at this point. A victory here all but seals the deal.

Oregon 52 – Washington 31: Probably the most highly contested “secondary” rivalry game outside of the Red River in the West Coast.

Jason A.W.’s Pac-12 Predictions: Week 8

Didn’t do as well as I hoped last week because of a couple of homer picks.

[Overall predictions]: 42-11 [Last Week]: 4-2

UCLA 24 at ARIZONA 34 (Thursday): This is probably the hardest pick for the week I think the Zona Zoo pulls this one out.

WASHINGTON 26 at STANFORD 45: Stanford has the 119th ranked schedule in the country thanks to a soft non-conference schedule and not having to play USC, Oregon, or ASU yet in conference play. This should provide a stiffer test for the men in red, but I think they still win comfortably.

UTAH 27 at CAL 30: Both teams are 0-3 in conference play and desperately need this win to boost their bowl chances in this rematch of the 2009 Poinsettia Bowl which the Utes won 37-27 which marked the was the game after the 42-10 Washington disaster which begun the Bear’s losing funk.

USC 27 at NOTRE DAME 24: I would totally bet the spread in Vegas if I get the chance. Beeno Cooke said on his radio show last year’s win (against Mitch Mustain might I add) was the sign of the beginning of the tide in this series which while recently has been dominated by the Men of Troy, still favors the Golden Domers by 10. I believe USC still has too much NFL talent and I would appreciate a win to end all this Notre Dame to BCS bowl talk which was surfaced again.

OREGON STATE 28 at WASHINGTON STATE 27 (in Seattle): I’ve picked the Beavers 4 times to win this year when they’ve lost and one of the times I didn’t pick them, they won. I’ll stubbornly pick them again because of 1) Mike Riley’s late season track record. 2) Revenge for Wazzou spoiling their bowl chances last year. 3) Game taking place at an almost neutral site. 4) Beavers now have stability at quarterback with Sean Mannion

OREGON 56 at COLORADO 21:  Likely no LMJ, but no matter. The Ducks will keep at least one of the Pac-12 newcomers winless in conference play so far.

Jason A.W.’s Pac-12 Predictions: Week 7

[Overall predictions]: 38-9 [Last Week]: 4-1

USC 31 – California 34: Score look familiar Cal fans?

Utah 20 – Pittsburgh 18: Utah won last year in OT in Salt Lake City. I have confidence in Utah stealing one across country.

Colorado 24 – Washington 48: Washington’s Keith Price has been very impressive in terms of passing this year.

BYU 25 – Oregon State 27: Oregon State avenges an embarrassing 2009 Las Vegas Bowl performance.

Stanford 38 – Washington State 20: I expect Wazzou to be more competitive than people expect.

Arizona State 28 – Oregon 44: ASU’s trouble in spotlight games continue. The North has proven to be far superior.
