Pac-12 football picks: UCLA or Washington? Stanford or USC?

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

What are your picks for each Pac-12 game this week and why?

Chris Landon, UW Dawg Pound: Wash@UCLA: UW - the Huskies have put up >590 yards in five games this year, they are really clicking right now

WSU@Zona: Zona - If this were in Pullman, I might pick the upset, but Arizona looks pretty solid despite the loss to UCLA last week

Utah@Oregon: Oregon - no commentary necessary

Cal@Colorado: Colorado - The Buffs are in a better mentality right now and should win in this intriguing match-up

OSU@ASU: ASU - The Beavs can't stop ASU's offense and will lose their third straight

Stan@USC: Stan - The Cardinal have a lot of seniors and they are know what is at stake ... no chance that they don't rise up to the occasion.

Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: USC over Stanford - Going upset, the Trojans have the defense to make a low-scoring game and Marqise Lee and Nelson Agholar to hit a couple home runs and win a game which they are long overdue to win against the Cardinal.

UCLA over Washington - The Bruins have the kind of front seven and running quarterback that destroy the Huskies who are generally putrid on the road.

Arizona State over Oregon State - The Sun Devils will be able to run the ball on the Beavers and get after Sean Mannion with their pass-rushers.

Arizona over Washington State - The Wildcats are really improving in Pac-12 play and the Cougars really seem to not be. Though I think the Cougars will make this one an interesting one, the Wildcats will have just enough offense to pull it out.

Cal over Colorado - Someone has to win this one I guess and I think the Bears just have a few more weapons than Colorado, especially if Paul Richardson isn't healthy.

Oregon over Utah - The Ducks' pain from losing Stanford should be taken out on the Utes in Autzen."

Jason Bartel, Arizona Desert Swarm: CU over Cal because it's in Boulder

Oregon over Utah because Oregon

ASU over OSU. I think the Sun Devils will just be too much to handle for the Beavs. In Tempe certainly helps.

Stanford over USC. It'll probably be closer than it should be, but I think the Cardinal don't drop the ball after last week's huge win.

UCLA over UW. Super close game, probably comes down to the last possession, but I think the Bruins come out on top. Maybe more Myles Jack carries?

UA over WSU. Arizona will need to get some pressure from their defensive front, but the Wildcats are healthier in the secondary this week at the perfect time against this offense."
