Pac-12 Predictions Week 11

National Championship implications tonight between Oregon and Stanfurd. Can Oregon keep up the monster season they are having?

Last week: 2-1. Overall: 49-9

Oregon @ Stanfurd: This is a tough one because of Stanfurd’s ability to stop the run. However, I think Oregon is going to come out on top with a strong DEFENSIVE performance. Oregon 35 – Stanfurd 21

Arizona State @ Utah: I still have no idea how Utah beat Stanfurd. ASU will be challenged from the get-go but should be able to come out with the win. Arizona State 42 – Utah 24

Colorado @ Washington: The Huskies are very strong at home and this should not be any different against the Buffs. Colorado 17 – Washington 49

UCLA @ Arizona:  Arizona has yet to lose at home but they haven’t exactly faced any formidable opponents there either. I see the Bruins winning this high scoring game. UCLA 48 – Arizona 35

Went 4-0 last week with my predictions! This week we get an early start on the Pac-12 action with ASU-WSU on Thursday and USC-OSU on Friday.

Last week: 4-0. Overall: 47-8

Arizona State @ Washington State: Even though this is an away game on a Thusrday night, ASU should be able to take care of business. Arizona State 34 – Washington State 14

USC @ Oregon State: OSU may have lost last week against Furd but they are still strong at home and should defeat a much weaker Trojan team. USC 17 – Oregon State 35

Colorado @ UCLA: As long as Hundley doesn’t turn over the ball, the Bruins should not have too much trouble with the Buffs. Colorado 10 – UCLA 42

Pac-12 Predictions Week 9

Couple of huge Pac-12 matchups this week with UCLA @ Oregon and Stanfurd @ Oregon State. This should be a fun Saturday to watch in the Pac.

Last week: 5-1. Overall: 43-8

Utah @ USC: USC will bounce back at home and win a tough one at home. Utah 17 – USC 21

UCLA @ Oregon: I just don’t see Oregon losing any momentum especially at home. UCLA 21 – Oregon 48

Arizona @ Colorado: Arizona should get this win but the mile high conditions may make it a bit difficult. Arizona 45 – Colorado 17

Stanfurd @ Oregon State: This is a tough one. Oregon State at home going in with all the momentum but they have to face a tough Stanfurd team. If Stanfurd wants to be good this year this have to beat a good team on the road, and I think it happens here. Stanfurd 34 –  Oregon State 17

Utah @ Arizona: I see Utah carrying their momentum from their huge win against Stanfurd and winning a close one at Arizona. Utah 28 – Arizona 24

Pac-12 Predictions Week 7

I was a bit busy this week so I didn’t have time to put in my USC-Arizona prediction. Sorry about that, but here is what I think will happen in the other games.

Last week: 3-1. Overall: 35-6

Oregon @ Washington: The way Oregon is playing, I don’t think Washington has a chance even though it’s in Seattle. Oregon 45 – Washington 17

Stanfurd @ Utah: Stanfurd just looks too good over a decent but not great Utah team. Stanfurd 48 – Utah 17

Colorado @ Arizona State: Even with a loss against Notre Dame, ASU still looks to be a major Pac-12 South contender and should be able to blow by Colorado. Arizona State 49 – Colorado 10

Oregon State @ Washington State: I wonder how Wazzu will play against a healthy secondary. Sigh. Oregon State 35 – Washington State 28


Pac-12 Predictions Week 6

It should be a fun game tonight in Utah and one with huge implications between Washington and Stanfurd this Saturday.

Last week: 3-1. Overall: 32-5

UCLA @ Utah: Bruins should be able to win this game with solid defense. UCLA 38 – Utah 14

Oregon @ Colorado: Oregon is looking too good. I don’t even think the thin air in Boulder will stop them. Oregon 52 – Colorado 20

Arizona State vs Notre Dame: This would be a huge win for Arizona State, especially after that big win against USC. This game might not be determined until the very end. Arizona State 38 – Notre Dame 35

Washington @ Stanfurd: I hate to keep picking our rivals, but that team is very solid right now. Washington 27 – Stanfurd 35


Pac-12 Predictions Week 5

Lots of exciting games this weekend in the Pac-12. Can the rising Cougars pull the upset of the year against Stanfurd?

Last week: 6-1. Overall: 29-4

Colorado @ Oregon State: Huge game for the Buffs and with the way the Beavers defense has been playing. I think the Buffs can pull it off. Colorado 35 – Oregon State 32

Arizona @ Washington: Washington looks really good right now and I expect their defense will be just as strong against Arizona. Arizona 14 – Washington 38

Stanfurd @ Washington State: I would be shocked if the Cougars win this one, but you never know with the Pac-12. Stanfurd 42 – Washington State 21

USC @ Arizona State: After a toss loss to Stanfurd, I think Arizona State can come back and get the win in front of their home crowd. USC 20 – Arizona State 24
