Lets take a look at the Pac-10 games going on today.

Washington

vs.

#20 Arizona

10:30 a.m. :: FSN

Big game for the Wildcats. They haven't been up to par lately, dropping 5 of their last 6 to Oregon, USC, UCLA, North Carolina, and Washington State. Washington looks to add their name to the list today; they've won their last three games. Arizona's big men better come ready to play. The Huskies will push you around in the middle, as the Ducks and Beavers alike found out last week. Arizona needs this win to get back on the right track, and Washington needs the win to climb back to where they think they should belong in the Pac-10 standings. I'm taking Washington in this one, 74-67.

#9 Oregon

vs.

 USC

12:30 a.m. :: KRCW (3)

The Ducks obviously need this win to get back on the winning track after losing to UCLA on Thursday. USC will be no easy win, as they've won 6 of their last 8, against good teams no less. They've only falen to UCLA and Stanford in those 8 games, and beaten teams like Cal, Arizona, and even delt the Ducks their first loss. USC has been tough this year at the Galen Center, and no doubt about it, it will be rockin' today. I'm taking the Ducks, 80-73.

Oregon State

vs.

#5 UCLA

2:30 p.m. :: FSN NW

We've talked about this game already, but this is definitely a mismatch on paper. Oregon State can only hope to keep it close against a UCLA team that's only lost two games this season, against Oregon and Stanford. No predictions for this one, I don't want to jinx anything....

#18 Washington State

vs.

Arizona State

4:30 p.m. :: FSN

Another mismatch. Washington State should roll in this one, as they've been hot lately. Washington State, 85-72.

Stanford

vs.

Cal

6:30 p.m. :: FSN

Always a interesting rivalry, and this is a great match up. Both Stanford and Cal have won their share of big games, and both are capable of winning this game. Stanford is going to have the height advantage by a long shot. I'm taking Stanford, 69-68.
