Pac-12 Picks, Week 10: Oregon's army of creepy mannequins

Why is there a game at 10:00 AM? Why is there a game at 8:00 PM?

Game Picks

Season: 34-24-2
Home team in CAPS.

Saturday, November 1st, 10:00 AM PDT
COLORADO (+4) over Washington

  • Earlier this week, USA Today's Fan Index ranked Ralphie's Run as the third best team entrance in college football (ASU and their Tillman Tunnel was ranked seventh). To me, this makes no sense because Clemson's and Virginia Tech's entrances, the teams ahead of CU, have no threat of a 1,300 pound animal trampling someone to death.
  • Last Saturday, I attended the ASU-UW game in Seattle. Cool stadium, but their team entrance was pretty lame. The Huskies just run out of their tunnel without any hype or build-up. Also, it'd be great if they invested in better weather.

WASHINGTON STATE (+9.5) over Southern California

  • A bold strategy if Leach decides to go this route with recruiting:

  • ESPN's "The Eliminator" "eliminated" USC from playoff contention with their loss to Utah, the 7th Pac-12 team to get the ax. But what if USC wins out and every other team in the country loses 3 games?
