Friday’s picks

I’m coming off a so-so 2-2 week (making me 38-11 for the season) that included being wrong about the Husky game.
But oh how close I was to being right. I picked UW to win 23-20, which was the score until Arizona State scored that TD on their first possession in overtime.
Off we go with this week’s picks:
Oregon State 31, Arizona State 27 — A great matchup of two teams that have revived their seasons in the last couple weeks, each keyed by beating UW in Seattle. OSU seems tailormade for a letdown after the big win over USC. But something makes me think a Beaver team I thought would be pretty good this year has finally found itself and will put out the win.
Washington State 24, Arizona 6 — Cougars could also be due for a letdown after two big wins. But I’m also becoming a believer in how good the Cougars really are. Their defense is the most opportunistic in the conference and Alex Brink is playing a lot better than he was a month ago. Hard to see how Arizona scores much.
USC 48, Stanford 7 — Trojans will be ready to whip up on someone after what happened in Corvallis and Stanford is simply awful.
Cal 41, UCLA 10 — Bears had a week off to get healthy after the tough win over the Huskies while the Bruins appear to be falling apart.
Also, hope you saw Bud Withers’ column in our paper today. He does a good job of breaking down the factors complicating Washington’s fading bowl hopes.
