Cal at Colorado

Betting Line: Cal -15


Colorado has lost every game this season by 23 points or more. The betting line here feels way too low. Expect Cal to win by 25+ as Colorado continues their path to an 0-12 season.


Prediction: Cal 44 vs Colorado 17

Arkansas at BYU

Betting Line: BYU -1


Arkansas is off to a disappointing start to the season after three straight losses. BYU has has been equally disappointing after losses to Oregon and Notre Dame and their Baylor win losing its luster after the Bears fell to a struggling West Virginia program this past Thursday. Arkansas' star quarterback K.J. Jefferson is slated to return against the Cougars, meaning this will be a high profile QB battle between potential first rounders. Whichever QB plays better in this contest will get the win.


Prediction: Arkansas 31 vs BYU 27


Arizona at Washington

Betting Line: Washington -14.5


The storyline here is Jayden de Laura's return to Seattle after planting a flag at midfield after the Cougs beat Washington in the Apple Cup last Fall. The Huskies will be motivated to shut down de Laura but the prediction here is star quarterback instead torches the Huskies once again.


Prediction: Arizona 41 vs Washington 38


Stanford at Notre Dame

Betting Line: ND -16.5


David Shaw's seat is finally getting hot after a 4th quarter melt down cost them the game against the Beavers who were led by a backup quarterback. Stanford has now lost 11 straight games to FBS opponents and now must take on a resurgent Notre Dame squad.


Prediction: Notre Dame 40 vs Stanford 23

#7 USC at #20 Utah

Betting Line: Utah -3.5


Going undefeated in the Pac-12 is extremely difficult and playing in Salt Lake City is a likely place to have a slip up. The Utes need to save their season with a win here after a disappointing loss to the Bruins and they find a way to get it done with their ground game.


Prediction: Utah 31 vs USC 30



WSU at Oregon State

Betting Line: OSU -3


The Cougs have sneakily been one of the best teams in the country. Had they pulled out the victory against Oregon, WSU would likely be a Top 15 team right now. As it stands, the Cougs are unranked and underdogs heading to Corvallis. Expect the WSU defense to force turnovers and Cam Ward to work his magic as WSU wins to improve to 5-2 before their contest against Utah on October 27th.


Prediction: WSU 34 vs Oregon State 24
