Picks come early this week, thanks to a Thursday night Oregon State/Stanford matchup that I'm sure you're totally amped about.
Oregon State (-3) at Stanford (Thurs.)
Gotta like the Beavs in this one: OSU 31, Stanford 20
Michigan State at California (-5)
I predict a comeback season for the Golden Bears, and this will only be the beginning: Cal 35, MSU 28
Idaho at Arizona (-27)
Let's go Vandals! Arizona 37, Idaho 14
Washington at Oregon (-13.5)
The Tyrone Willingham farewell tour makes its first stop at Autzen. Oregon 35, Washington 21
USC (-19.5) at Virginia
You have to respect USC for having the guts to play BCS-conference teams on the road early. USC 33, Virginia 10
Tennessee (-7.5) at UCLA
All kidding aside, Rick Neuheisal does win ball games. Just not this one. Tennessee 27, UCLA 14
Northern Arizona at Arizona State
This one's not really fair. ASU 48, NAU 11
Missing a prediction? Yep, but right now you'll have to wait just a bit longer for my Cougs/Cowboys estimate. Right now OK State is a seven point favorite.
