Friday, September 29th (7:30 PM PT, ESPN)
WASHINGTON STATE [4-0] v. USC [4-0]
A Friday night showdown in Pullman, WA. Sounds like a perfect recipe for an upset. USC is slightly favored, but the majority of BTD believes in the Cougars.
Brian J. Moore: Washington State
Joe Londergan: Washington State
Leo Castaneda: Washington State
Marcus Russell: USC
Robert Ingle: USC
Travis Johannes: Washington State
Saturday, September 30th (1:00 PM PT, PAC-12 Network)
STANFORD [2-2] v. ARIZONA STATE [2-2]
Arizona State struggled early in the season, but pulled off the upset against Oregon. Can they pull off another one? Maybe, but Stanford is favored by 17.
Brian J. Moore: Stanford
Joe Londergan: Stanford
Leo Castaneda: Stanford
Marcus Russell: Stanford
Robert Ingle: Stanford
Travis Johannes: Stanford
Saturday, September 30th (5:00 PM PT, Pac-12 Network)
OREGON STATE [1-3] v. WASHINGTON [4-0]
The Beavers are back on the field! They host the Huskies and it might get ugly. But with an extra week to prepare and Garretson game ready I think we see a more competitive Oregon State team.
Brian J. Moore: Washington
Joe Londergan: Washington
Leo Castaneda: Washington
Marcus Russell: Washington
Robert Ingle: Washington
Travis Johannes: Washington
Saturday, September 30th (7:30 PM PT, ESPN2)
UCLA [2-2] v. COLORADO [3-1]
UCLA is favored by just over a touchdown and host the Buffs. This game feels like it’s headed to overtime for some reason.
Brian J. Moore: UCLA
Joe Londergan: UCLA
Leo Castaneda: Colorado
Marcus Russell: UCLA
Robert Ingle: UCLA
Travis Johannes: Colorado
Saturday, September 30th (7:30 PM PT, FS1)
OREGON [3-1] v. CAL [3-1]
The Ducks return to Autzen stadium after losing to the Sun Devils in Tempe. Can Cal hand them their second straight loss? Let’s hope so...
