Pac-10 picks

Now 30-7 for the season and heading into a week when three of the four games have pretty large point spreads — meaning upsets galore, probably, given the nature of college football.
But here goes anyway:
ARIZONA STATE AT WASHINGTON STATE: It could start getting ugly for the Cougars and coach Bill Doba, who is starting to feel some serious heat on the Palouse (something they’d rather have in the dorms this time of year than in the coach’s office). Hard to see it cooling here with ASU’s passing attack going against a WSU defense that can’t stop anybody. Only hope for Cougs is that the WSU offense plays flawlessly. ASU’s defense has been a real surprise so far, but this game will show how much of that has been merely a function of the schedule. Guess here is ASU’s pretty much for real and will make Dennis Erickson’s homecoming (though isn’t that kind of a redudant phrase?) a happy one. ARIZONA STATE 38, WSU 24.
ARIZONA AT OREGON STATE: OSU’s reeling and Arizona’s surging — which probably means a big win for the Beavers considering how these two teams usually react in such situations. Arizona has never handled success well under Mike Stoops, and this could be a big game for the future of the coach to show he’s really turning things around. That offense certainly looks much improved. Anyone who watched it knows OSU could have easily beaten UCLA last week despite that 40-14 score, but it may be hard for the Beavers to get over the way that one got away. We’ll jump back on the Arizona bandwagon for a week. ARIZONA 27, OSU 17.
STANFORD AT USC: The Trojans are mad after last week’s performance against UW, Pete Carroll’s apparently still a little steamed at all the stuff Jim Harbaugh has said, and the Cardinal has to start Tavita Pritchard at quarterback. That 40-and-a-half point spread may not be enough. USC 51, Stanford 3.
NOTRE DAME AT UCLA: The Bruins have recovered from the Utah debacle to win two in a row, but still seem to look a little shaky, especially on offense. And if UCLA becomes the first team this year to lose to Notre Dame, those guys at DumpDorrell.com will be back in full force. UCLA’s defense, however, should be stout enough to overcome what offensive problems the Bruins have, and UCLA usually gets up for the big ones. UCLA 31, Notre Dame 13.
