Started off pretty well last week with a 9-1 record, but Jake Locker let me down as the Huskies were held scoreless in the second half against BYU. Lots of good games this week and one conference game with Stanford traveling to UCLA.
Colorado at Cal: The newest member of the Pac-12 should receive some rookie hazing as Cal looks to impose its offensive firepower at the skill positions. Look for Shane Vareen to run in the 150 yard range and the Kevin Riley to Keenan Allen connection to continue. Our special guest from The Office, Dwight Schrute, picked the score this week. Bears 34 - Buffs 23
Stanford at UCLA: The new UCLA pistol offense looked like a SuperSoaker last week and Stanford has a QB with a cannon for an arm. Andrew Luck will be facing the top secondary in the conference, but his offensive line should give him plenty of time against a young Bruin front seven. Stanford 31 - UCLA 23Virginia at USC:
Virginia at USC: Lane Kiffin has seen better tackling in Pee Wee football and he sent a message to his players this week. Look for them to come out more aggressive and wrapping up when they tackle. The NASPAQ report shows that the USC defense hit the market bottom this week and many of our analysts see it as a bull market moving forward. USC 45 - Virginia 14
North Arizona at Arizona State: The Sun Devils are on the cupcake diet and facing their second FCS team this season. Steven Threet benefited from a lot of explosive plays out of Cameron Marshall against Portland State. Look for them to have some longer drives this week. Sun Devils 34 - Lumberjacks 10
Oregon at Tennessee: Darron Thomas' first road game with 105,000 orange clad cousins cheering against him will be a lot easier with the James and Barner in the backfield. Justin Wilcox out-schemed Chip Kelly last year when he was Boise State's Defensive Coordinator, but the young Tennessee defense won't have the same discipline of the Broncos. Ducks 34 - Vols 20
The Citadel at Arizona: The Citadel forced four interceptions last week against a team I've never heard of (Chowan), but they didn't have to face Nick Foles. Arizona will be looking to fine tune their offense before Iowa visits next week, Foles throws for 300 yards and Criner gets another TD. The Arizona University 55 - The Citadel 7
Syracuse at Washington: Nobody needs a strong performance this week more than Jake Locker. The Huskies played much better at home last year and expect that trend to continue. Chris Polk should eclipse the 100 yard mark for the first time this season as the Huskies cruise. Dawgs 31 - Orange 20
UNLV at Utah: I loved watching this Utah team knock off Pitt last week in overtime and without tooting my horn too much, my prediction was spot on. The NASPAQ shows that Jordan Wynn stock is growing strong. Utes 41 - UNLV 17
Montana State at Washington State: The Cougars are about to get their first win of the season as Jeff Tuel throws for 300 yards in this game. Cougars 34 - Bobcats 20
2010 Prediction record 9-1
