UCLA at #7Texas 12:30PM: UCLA had a gutsy win last week against #23 Houston and the Bruin secondary is designed to slow down a spread offense like Texas', but look for Mack Brown to take advantage of his size up front by relying on the ground game. Longhorns 34 - Bruins 17
#20 USC at Washington State 12:00PM: Lane Kiffin is addicted to two point conversions, the Trojans haven't played a complete game, and they have dropped in the rankings after all three of their victories. This should be the game where they put it all together and finally cover the spread for the first time this season. Trojans 42 - Cougars 20
#16 Stanford at Notre Dame 12:30PM: As we know from The Big Lebowski "Nobody F#cks with The Jesus!" Except maybe Jim Harbaugh and Andrew Luck of Stanford. Notre Dame's defense will need extra prayer this week if they plan on slowing down the Cardinal offense. Trees 27 - Catholic Kids 23
#5 Oregon at Arizona State 7:30PM: ASU looked good against the big slow white guys from Wisconsin, but the Ducks have as much speed as any team in the country. The main advantage for Oregon is that they get to train with this guy. The side story for this game is the amazing talent at cheerleader that should be on display. Ducks 41 - Sun Devils 17
San Jose State at #13 Utah 7:30PM: The Utes haven't missed a beat with the reemergence of Terrance Cain at quarterback. San Jose State doesn't have the athletes to contain DeVonte Christopher and Jereme Brooks. A win here will bring them closer to the top ten. Utes 44 - Spartans 13
#24 Oregon State at #3 Boise State 5:00PM: This looked like a marquee game before the season started, but don't expect it to be a close one. The Beavers might have a chance if Stephen Paea can disrupt Kellen Moore, but they haven't been able to get to the quarterback much this year. Boise is balanced offensively and Chris Peterson should exploit the inexperience at linebacker by utilizing the tight end more. Broncos 38 - Beavers 21
Cal at #14 Arizona 7:00PM: The Bears are coming off a disappointing loss and the Wildcats just knocked off a top ten team last week. If Juron Criner doesn't play look for Arizona to use a shorter passing game. If Cal plays to their potential and Arizona has an emotional letdown, this could be an upset. The Zona Zoo is wild at night and the Bears have struggled in Tuscon. Wildcats 31 - Bears 27 Here's a great preview of Bears vs Housecats
