Pac-12 Football Schedule: Stanford Vs. Oregon State The Game To Watch

Craig Mitchelldyer

The most important college football schedule features the Stanford Cardinal taking on the Oregon State Beavers in a Pac-12 North clash, with USC vs. Arizona State also definitely being worth your time.

What is the Pac-12 game to watch this week and why?

Avinash Kunnath, Pacific Takes & California Golden Blogs: Oregon State vs. Stanford. If Oregon wins out, the second best Pac-12 team will probably end up at Pasadena, meaning the loser of this game is probably out of the picture. Also, both of these teams have to play Oregon later on and are the biggest challenges left to the Ducks. Can the Beavers overwhelm the strong Cardinal defense, and what can Kevin Hogan do in his first real start?

Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: Oregon State at Stanford. Two teams that still control their destiny in the North, play similar styles, are neck and neck in the polls and are both playing well right now... yes please.

Michael Preston, CougCenter: Arizona State at USC. Arizona State and USC have combined to lose their last five straight. So why is this interesting? An Arizona State win vaults them ahead of USC in the South division and I'm always a fan of some quality USC schadenfraude.

Andy Wooldridge, Building The Dam: Oregon St. at Stanford. Its the only game matching 2 ranked opponents, and there's a good chance it could decide which team goes to the Rose Bowl, whether the winner beats Oregon or loses to them.

Jon Woods, Ralphie Report: Definitely Oregon State at Stanford. Hogan vs. Vaz. Lot at stake.
