If you're in the Bay Area this weekend, you can get your ultimate fix of Pac-12 football by taking in the UCLA vs Cal game at 12:30, then head south to Palo Alto and watch the USC vs Stanford game at 5 PM.

UCLA at Cal 12:30 PM: Is Cal going to let the baby Bears feed off of the momentum they've gained the past three weeks? With Kevin Prince missing a couple days of practice combined with the Bears having already played Nevada's pistol offense earlier in the year, I'm giving them the major edge. UCLA hasn't won in Berkeley since the 90's. Papa Bear 31 - Baby Bear 23

#3 Oregon at Washington State 2:00 PM: The forecast predicts Oregon Reign starting at 2:03 PM on Saturday. The Ducks could probably hang a hundred on the Cougars if they wanted to, but expect the 2nd and 3rd strings to play about half of the game. Mighty Ducks 65 - Pussy Cats 10

Oregon State at Arizona 3:00PM: The Beavers are tough to get a read on with their inconsistent offense. Will they have the road Ryan Katz, who's inaccurate, or the home Ryan Katz, who delivers? With two weeks to prepare for this game, Mike Stoops should have his boys ready to play. Wildcats 34 - Wood Choppers 27

USC at #18 Stanford 5:00PM: Stanford went from contender to pretender in the second half of the Oregon game, but USC is in an even worse situation with poor coaching and inconsistent play from quarterback Matt Barkley. Jim Harbaugh loved nothing more than knocking the smugness off of Pete Carroll's face, but he might have some pity for Lane Kiffin.

I like the Trojans for the upset, because I still don't like Stanford's running game to control the clock like they did last year. Stanford also has one of the worst home field advantages in the conference and I'm expecting Trojan fans to outnumber the Cardinal. Condoms 30 - Bonzais 27  

Arizona State at Washington 7:00 PM: We haven't had the Vontaze Bufict over/under on the number of unnecessary penalties he'll commit in the game since Week 1, but in case you missed his head butt of Ryan Katz last week we're bringing it back for week 6 and it's set at 1.5. Arizona State's defense is fast, but we like Jake Locker to build on the momentum of last week's game. Puppies 27 - Sun Angels 21

Colorado at Missouri 4:00 PM: The Buffs are coming off a big win, but Missouri is jealous that they're coming over to the Pac-12, and they're going to try to spoil the party for them. The Tigers will spread out the Buffaloes and I don't anticipate them getting much pressure on Blaine Gabbort. Tigers 31 - Buffs 20 

#10 Utah at Iowa State 4:00 PM: Jordan Wynn is rested after the bye week and looking to get in sync with his wide receivers. Iowa State is 84th in total defense this season, so the Utes shouldn't have trouble moving the ball. Utah 33 - Cyclones 24

2010 Prediction Record 37-7
