Friday’s picks

As always, I’ll give you my picks for the rest of the Pac-10 games here, followed by a breakdown of the Huskies game a little later.
I was 6-2 last week, making me 12-4 for the season, though whiffing badly on that Idaho upset of WSU (drank too much of that Dennis Erickson Kool-Aid, I guess).
Now for this week:
Oregon 31, Oklahoma 27 — I think the Sooners look a little on the average side and will get exposed in Autzen.
WSU 35, Baylor 24 — This could be tougher than it sounds for the Cougars as Baylor is suddenly throwing it all over the place, one area where WSU is vulnerable. But “home field” should help the Cougs prevail.
Cal 51, Portland State 17 — Bears got back on track last week.
Arizona State 38, Colorado 21 — They can’t blame Neuheisel anymore in Boulder. Intriguing matchup of coaching buddies Dirk Koetter and Dan Hawkins, who were together at Boise State for a while.
USC 41, Nebraska 21 — Trojans really look like the class of the Pac right now as long as the Reggie Bush aftermath doesn’t bring them down.
Arizona 38, Stephen F. Austin 10 — Not only is SFA a I-AA team but it is also 0-2 after losing to Delta State last week.
Navy 31, Stanford 28 — Could be a sorry debut for Stanford’s new stadium. Navy is 2-0 and will try to run like crazy against a Cardinal defense that is last in the Pac-10 against the run, allowing 320 yards per game.
Also, here’s the best story from out of the area today that has anything to do with Husky football. John Canzano’s column in today’s Oregonian is really about Oregon football boosters. But in the process of making some points about them, Canzano references how some high-falutin UW boosters called “the circle” get together every Monday to talk about the general state of affairs. It’s interesting reading.
