Sorry Pac-10?

Wow, couldn’t have been more wrong about Oregon State. The Beavers looked dreadful in their loss to Boise State last night, which suddenly makes you wonder about the Pac-10 as a whole. UW was sluggish last week, WSU got blown out at Auburn, Cal was pathetic at Tennessee and ASU mediocre against Northern Arizona.
That makes Saturday a big day for the conference to show its mettle against out-of-conference competition, led by the Huskies playing at Oklahoma.
Let’s look at each game real quick followed by our pick:
Idaho at WSU — The Cougars are losing guys the way Paris Hilton attracts publicity, and the Vandals are re-energized under Dennis Erickson. We’ll pick the upset — Idaho 31, WSU 27.
Rice at UCLA– The Bruins were the one Pac-10 team (other than USC) that really looked good last week, pounding Utah. This should be no different. UCLA 41, Rice 17
Stanford at San Jose State –Dick Tomey says the Cardinal is better than the Huskies. I think they may be about even. Stanford 38, SJS 28.
Minnesota at Cal — Bears will bounce back, though you wonder if all the offensive changes they’ve made are going to pan out. Cal 30, Minnesota 20.
Oregon at Fresno State — Very intriguing game for UW fans with both teams on the schedule. If Stewart’s healthy, Ducks should prevail. Oregon 35, FSU 30.
Arizona at LSU — Wildcats didn’t look all that better against BYU last week. LSU 31, Arizona 13.
Nevada at Arizona State — Pressure could really build on Koetter with a loss here. ASU 40, Nevada 31.
As always, we’ll breakdown the UW game a little later.
By the way — just landed in Oklahoma. Weather seems pretty mild. A little humid, but much cooler than I guess it was a week or so ago, so maybe the Huskies have caught a little break there.
