The Stanford Cardinal and Oregon State Beavers are both solid underdogs to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the BYU Cougars. USC is a double digit favorite over Washington, UCLA has a slight edge on Utah, Arizona State is big favorites over Colorado.
Arizona State favored by 22 to 23 points over Colorado: The Sun Devils try to keep their march to a Pac-12 South crown going as they head to Boulder to take on the hapless Buffs on Thursday night.
UCLA favored by 6.5 points over Utah: The Bruins did not have a good weekend in Berkeley, but they get a good chance to turn things around at home against the Utes.
BYU favored by 2.5 points over Oregon State: The Cougars defense will probably provide one of the stiffest tests on the year for a suddenly stuttering Beaver offense in Provo, and they pummeled a Washington State team that gave Oregon State all sorts of problems at home.
Notre Dame favored by 9.5 points over Stanford: The Fighting Irish defense has been dominant so far this season, and you have to figure the Cardinal offense will be seriously tested to score points through the air.
USC favored by 13 to 13.5 points over Washington: The Trojans seemed to regain their form last week in Salt Lake City, and now they head to Seattle to try and grab a second straight victory over Steve Sarkisian.
Cal favored by 7 points over Washington State: The Golden Bears are coming off a statement win that might have salvaged their season. Will that game travel on the road to the Palouse?
