Pac-12 bowl pick No. 3: Hawaii

Tuesday

Oregon State (minus 3) vs. Boise State in Honolulu — I won’t get into a whole lot of analysis on whose offense might succeed against whose defense. This one looks to me like Exhibit A for why one team might be ready for a big effort and why one team won’t. The Beavers have struggled through a five-game losing streak that put a kibosh on a 6-1 start. So they ought to be focused and ready. Meanwhile, Boise State has lost its head coach and then seen a backup quarterback sent home for allegedly urinating off a hotel balcony (which he’s contesting). I think the Beavers come up big. Oregon State 37, Boise State 24.
