Matt Barkley and the Torjans should be a lock against Boulder.
Andrew Luck, Matt Barkley and LaMichael James are all going to be in action for their respective Pac-12 teams this coming weekend.
The latest BCS rankings were unveiled on Sunday. Stanford (4), Oregon (8) and Arizona State (19) are all representing the conference.
It's fair to say that USC would join those three if it was BCS eligible.
This slideshow is going to delve into every Pac-12 matchup and predict the winner.
Without further ado, let's move on to the six Pac-12 games of the weekend.
Matt Barkley and the Trojans are coming off a disappointing loss against Stanford.
USC gave Stanford a run for its money last week at the Coliseum. In the end, the Trojans were on the wrong end of a 56-48 triple-overtime loss.
USC was the first team all year that has come within 26 points of Stanford. After eight weeks of football, that is saying something.
Colorado has had a season to forget. The Buffaloes are a dismal 1-8, with their only win coming against Colorado State.
The Buffaloes are now on a six-game losing streak, the longest such streak in the Pac-12. They are also the only team who has yet to win a conference game.
Colorado looks to be the team that everyone can rely on for a victory.
And, I don't see USC having any trouble with this one.
Predicted Winner: USC Trojans
Andrew Luck is a Heisman Trophy favorite.
If it was last year, I would make this a possible upset.
Unfortunately for Beaver fans, Oregon State has not been able to pull off the same type of high profile upsets typical of last year.
Oregon State is 2-6 for the first time since 2004. In recent seasons, the Beavers have been an exciting, above-average Pac-12 team.
Despite its poor overall play, Mike Riley's team still ranks above California and Washington State in its conference. The Beavers are fourth in the Pac-12 North, with a conference record of 2-3.
Stanford has been outstanding this year.
Andrew Luck has led the Cardinal to an 8-0 start, and Stanford is the highest ranked Pac-12 team in the BCS at fourth.
The terrific balance of Stanford's team makes it one of the more dangerous teams in the country.
While it's true that Oregon State is not going to roll over, Stanford has too much talent for the Beavers to win this one.
Predicted Winner: Stanford Cardinal
Marshall Lobesstael has been great for the Cougars this year.
Washington State will be traveling to Berkeley for a bottom-of-the-division clash against the Golden Bears of California.
The Cougars are tied with Cal for last place in the Pac-12 North. Both schools have a 1-4 conference record.
Washington State is coming into this game looking to end a four-game losing streak. The Golden Bears are also in poor form, having picked up just one win from their last five games.
Both teams have good passing games and below average running games. Cal is a more balanced team, allowing its opponents an average of just 26.4 points per game, while the Cougars give up 32.
This game may well turn into a passing contest with the school that performs the best in the air coming out on top.
Cal really needs to win this game, mainly because of its remaining fixtures. The Golden Bears close the season against Stanford in Palo Alto and then against Arizona State in Tempe.
This, along with their home-field advantage, should be enough to push the Golden Bears to a victory.
Predicted Winner: California Golden Bears
Nick Foles and the Wildcats are having a down year.
The Arizona Wildcats have had a dismal start to the season. They're 2-6 for the first time since 2007, and their only saving grace has been Colorado's horrible form this season.
Utah has not impressed in its first season as a member of the Pac-12. The Utes are off to a 4-4 start, but they have managed just one win in their five conference games.
Utah's offense has been among the worst in the nation. It ranks 88th in the nation for both rushing yards and points scored.
The Utah passing game is even worse.
The Utes average 179.5 yards in the air, which puts them at 100th in the FBS.
Utah's only hope is its defense. The Ute defense allows just 20.6 points per game.
And, I'll just throw this out there: Utah has failed to win any game in which its opponent has scored more than 14 points.
Arizona has failed to register more than 14 points just twice in its eight games this season.
The Wildcats' home crowd, coupled with their explosive offense, should lead them to a victory over this Pac-12 South rival.
Predicted Winner: Arizona Wildcats
Rick Neuheisel is feeling the pressure.
UCLA finally got back to its winning ways last week with a 31-14 win over California. The Bruins improved their home record to 3-1, and they looked convincing for the first time in weeks.
Arizona State has been one of the surprise teams of the season.
The Sun Devils have gotten off to a 6-2 start and are first in the Pac-12 South with a 4-1 conference record.
The Sun Devils will come into the game as favorites, but it is important to note that they have been poor on the road, winning just one of three games.
The Bruins will be playing host to the Sun Devils, which may be to ASU's detriment. UCLA has won three of its four home games this season.
It seems foolish to pick UCLA to win this game, but that's exactly what I'm going to do.
This is a typical game that the Bruins win to give their fans hope. But not to fear, UCLA fans, the Bruins will go on to lose to Utah, USC and possibly Colorado.
Predicted Winner: UCLA Bruins
LaMichael James will be hoping to get a start this weekend.
LaMichael James was having a fantastic season up until his injury. Luckily for Oregon fans, it looks like the star running back will return to the starting lineup this weekend.
The Washington Huskies will be playing host to the Oregon Ducks on Sunday. UW has had a great season so far, starting at 6-2. Its conference record of 4-1 puts Washington at third in the Pac-12 North.
Washington's strong point this year has been its offense. The Huskies boast an above average and balanced offense.
Their defense has been a completely different story. UW gives up an average of 33.4 points per game, ranking 103rd in the FBS.
Oregon has not looked like the same team as last year's BCS finalist.
However, to their credit, the Ducks have recovered from their opening night loss to LSU.
This has all the makings of a classic Pac-10 shootout. An explosive Oregon offense and a horrible UW defense should lead to a high-scoring affair.
While UW will give them a go, the Oregon Ducks are too talented for this Husky team.
Predicted Winner: Oregon Ducks
