College Football Picks: USC Over ASU The Lock Of The Week

Robert Laberge

The biggest Pac-12 lock of the week? Picking the USC Trojans to beat the Arizona State Sun Devils this Saturday.

If you had a Pac-12 pick of the week, which team and which line would you take and why? See lines here.

Avinash Kunnath, Pacific Takes & California Golden Blogs: USC -10. Last time Trojans lost three in a row, people thought Pete Carroll didn't have what it takes. Sun Devils got through the soft part of their schedule, but they're starting to get battered by all the good ones, and they've probably peaked in the first year of the Todd Graham era. Should be a comfortable win to set up a big game against UCLA.

Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: USC -10. Despite losing two in a row, the Trojans are still a good team and desperately need to not just beat someone, but beat them convincingly and a reeling Arizona State team is the perfect team for that. The Sun Devils will have absolutely no answer for Marqise Lee and Robert Woods.

Michael Preston, CougCenter: UCLA -14. You guys saw what UCLA did to Arizona right? And then you also saw what Utah did to Washington State? Woof. It doesn't matter if it's the first game at home in a month and Dad's Weekend in Pullman, UCLA should win this by more than two touchdowns.

Jon Woods, Ralphie Report: USC -10. Even coming off of losses to Oregon and Arizona, the Trojan offense has shown to be nearly unstoppable over the last few games and will be dying to get back in the win column. Arizona State has hit another mid-season swoon and won't be able to keep this one close enough in LA.
