Irish open as 13.5-point favorites

The Huskies will be back in a familiar role as pretty heavy underdogs as they head to Notre Dame Saturday with the host Irish installed as a 13.5-point favorite in the opening line today.
The Huskies are 2-2 straight-up and 2-2 against the spread this year, covering against Idaho and USC.
In other Pac-10 lines, Oregon is a 28-point favorite over visiting WSU, USC is a 4-point favorite at Cal, Stanford 6.5 over visiting UCLA and Arizona State 6 over visiting Oregon State.
And just in case you needed confirmation, the Huskies did not receive any votes in either poll this week.
Three Pac-10 teams are ranked in each poll. In the AP, USC is 7, Oregon 16 and Cal 25. In the coaches poll it’s USC 7, Cal 19 and Oregon 25, the coaches apparently having missed the score of yesterday’s Cal-Oregon game since there’s no reasonable way you rate the Bears ahead of the Ducks after yesterday.
Stanford got two votes in the AP poll and 20 in the coaches (and we know at least one of those is from Jim Harbaugh). I’ll post my top 25 a little later.
