Pac-12 football picks: Stanford or Oregon State? Oregon or UCLA?

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

USC over Utah - The Trojans are playing better under Ed Orgeron and the Utes could be a different team without Travis Wilson.

Oregon over UCLA - The Bruins don't have the defense to stop Oregon nor the offensive firepower to win a shootout.

Arizona over Colorado - The Wildcats look to be getting better and Ka'Deem Carey should run all over the Buffs again.

Stanford over Oregon State - The Cardinal looked like they woke up on defense last week and should be able to pressure Sean Mannion into some mistakes.

Washington over Cal - The Huskies looked horrific last week but the Bears are terrible, it's in Seattle and there should be a lot of emotion for the Huskies.

UW over Cal. Huskies bounce back against probably the worst team in the conference.

Oregon over UCLA. The Ducks are at home, and UCLA comes off a bruising battle against Stanford.

OSU over Stanford. This is when the Beavers declare themselves as UO's biggest contenders for the North title.

Arizona over Colorado. Ka'Deem Carey went for 366 against the Buffs last year. Should be interesting what happens this time around now that Denker has proven himself two weeks in a row.

USC over Utah. This might be the closest game of the weekend. Depends on how healthy Travis Wilson is I suppose.

-Utah should bounce back from their loss at Arizona and beat USC.

-Arizona will take care of business against Colorado

-Stanford will put the choke-hold on Oregon State and grind out another win

-Washington will redeem itself and win against Cal

-UCLA will play better against Oregon and will keep up on the scoreboard, but Oregon will separate late and get the needed win over a quality opponent.
