PAC 12 Football week 8 Preview and Predictions

A weekly look at Pac 12 games and some predictions to go with them

Stephen Dunn

Hey everyone. Man its been a crazy week, but i feels like it should be crazy after all the upsets this last weekend. Since this is a bit late I will jump straight into this weeks games.


CSU vs Colorado 2:00PM ET Kick off. Colorado is currently 0-3 in Pac 12 play, but I expect them to keep their perfect non league record. CSU 10 Colorado 24

UCLA (9th) vs Stanford (13th) 3:30PM ET Kick off GAME OF THE WEEK. This is a statement game for both these programs. UCLA needs to show up and beat an elite team to put themselves in the national picture. Stanford needs to come back and prove at home that last week was a fluke. I think UCLA comes in and beats stanford at home. UCLA 31 Stanford 27

Washington (20th) vs ASU 6:00PM ET Kick off. Washington did their best last week to stay close to the ducks, but at home they couldn't. On the road I haven't been nearly as impressed with them, and as much as I hate to pick ASU I have to at home. Washington 20 ASU 24

USC vs Notre Dame 7:30PM ET Kick off. USC is one of the hardest teams to predict right now. With Kiffin gone we just aren't sure how they will respond the rest of the year. I still think Notre Dame were a bit over rated to start the year. I am going with Pac 12 Pride. USC 27 Notre Dame 24

Utah vs Arizona 10:00PM ET Kick off. Arizona is still 0-2 in league play. The desert should be rocking this weekend and they will get their first win against a  Utah team that doesn't play nearly the same on the road as they do at home. Utah 17 Arizona 35

WSU vs Oregon (2nd) 10:00PM ET Kick off. WSU is much better this year than they were last year. However, they are going into one of the most difficult stadiums in the country. Oregon will put this game away early. WSU 17 Oregon 52

OSU vs Cal 10:30PM ET Kick off. OSU offense has been very impressive this year. They are a surprising 5-0 after their embarrassing week 1 loss. Cal has just  been horrible for the Pac 12 this year. OSU 42 Cal 17

Good luck to everyone.
