Beavers or Huskies? Utes or Cougars? Trojans or Buffs? Cardinal or Bears?

Scott Olmos-US PRESSWIRE

Outside of ASU-UCLA, what are your picks for each Pac-12 game this week and why?

Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: Oregon State over Washington - The Huskies are still bad on the road and their lack of pass rush will allow a big comeback game for Sean Mannion and Brandin Cooks.

Washington State over Utah - The Cougars know how much is at stake here and the Utes will struggle with their injury issues at quarterback.

Oregon over Arizona - The Ducks will dominate the Wildcats up front on both sides and give Mariota plenty of time to beat the Wildcats down field.

USC over Colorado - The Trojans defense will control the limited Buffs offense.

Stanford over Cal- Stanford will have the ball all day and be pounding it, which the Bears might actually like because I'm sure they want this season to just be over."

Chris Landon, UW Dawg Pound: Oregon over Arizona: if there were going to be another Oregon upset, this might be the one .. but I don't see it.

WSU over Utah: the emotion of losing Travis Wilson could go either way, but I'm betting on the home team here. WSU should be plenty motivated given their shot at bowl eligibility.

Stanford over Cal: this one is too obvious.

USC over Colorado: see Stanford over Cal.

UW over WSU: I think the Huskies outplayed UCLA but for the early turnovers and the phantom call that erased a UW 2nd quarter TD. They are the more desperate team.

ASU over UCLA: ASU has the more efficient offense and a pass rush that matches up extremely well against the young UCLA O-Line. I see the Devils running away with this by the third quarter."
