#13 ARIZONA STATE (-16) over Washington State
- Since ASU's football team sent me into a spiral of depression this week, here's some non-gridiron news: the Sun Devil hockey team will become an NCAA Division I member! ASU will be the southernmost and westernmost Division I program in the continental U.S. So for any high school hockey stars out there thinking about Harvard, start thinking about the Harvard of the Southwest.
Uhh, it's not that hot in Tempe this time of year:
#15 Arizona (+4.5) over #17 UTAH
- Since we're being deprived of a snow bowl this Sunday, with the NFL moving the Jets-Bills game to Detroit, hopefully it snows in Salt Lake City today.
CALIFORNIA (+5.5) over Stanford
Thirty-two years ago yesterday, this happened:
For the third year in a row, Stanford coach David Shaw did not attend the annual Big Game Luncheon, a fundraiser that supports at-risk Bay Area youth. Perfect time for an ISIS joke by the emcee, right?
#2 OREGON (-32.5) over Colorado
Marcus Mariota was given a speeding ticket this week, but jeez, he isn't that bad of a person:
Right, so definitely take the Ducks if you're in Vegas:

#19 Southern California (+4) over #9 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES
As an ASU fan, I will never root for USC as hard as I will tonight, so FIGHT ON! CONQUEST! GEORGE LUCAS! And whatever other things USC people cheer. Also, here's a throwback to the greatest a capella fight rap of all time:
After UCLA cancelled its annual bonfire (because of students protesting tuition increases), coach Jim Mora addressed the crowd. Why does he even use the word "freaking"?
WASHINGTON (-6.5) over Oregon State
- The Huskies clock in at #9 in USA Today's Misery Index. They should have probably taken a knee(s) last Saturday.
- I wish Oregon State nothing but the worst from now until eternity (or more likely, until they play Arizona next year).
