Arizona will face Colorado for a chance to go bowling this year, and though it could potentially be interesting without Matt Scott, chances are it won’t be. With the game starting so early, there is some opportunity to catch some other Pac-12 games tomorrow afternoon.

Worth Your While:

#11 Oregon State (7-1, 5-1) v. #14 Stanford (7-2, 5-1)
Time: 1:00PM
Television: Fox
Lines: Stanford -4

This will be one of the best match-ups of the Pac-12 season. Two very good defenses that both run similar pro style offenses, this should be a low scoring, smash mouth, I-bet-my-guy-can-hit-harder-than-your-guy-type of game. The line is on Stanford, but our bet will go to the Beavers for the win.

ASU (5-4, 3-3) v. #19 USC (6-3, 4-3)
Time: 1:00PM
Television: Pac-12 Network
Lines: USC -9

ASU has gone on a three game skid and USC has unexpectedly lost two games in a row. Another loss for the Trojans increases UCLA’s chances of taking the Pac-12 South, while a loss for the Devils brings them–after going 5-1 to start the season–to a disappointing .500 record. Our guess: USC rebounds with a dominating victory over ASU.

Utah (4-5, 2-4) v. Washington (5-4, 3-3)
Time: 8:30PM
Television: Pac-12 Network
Lines: Washington -2

Utah and Washington could be the most unpredictable teams in the Pac-12. Utah’s offense scored only seven points against ASU and Oregon State, but 49 against Washington State and Cal. Utah is on the rise with a two game winning streak. Meanwhile, Washington has upset both Stanford and Oregon State–both teams that beat Arizona–but got destroyed by Arizona 52-17. Washington is also on the rise with a two game winning streak. Both teams increase their chances to go bowling with a win, but we give this one to Washington, whose only loss at home came to USC. Utah, meanwhile, has yet to win a game on the road.

Don’t Waste Your Time

#3 Oregon (9-0, 6-0) v. Cal (3-7, 2-5): This game should only be watched if you enjoy the football equivalent to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
#18 UCLA (7-2,4-2) v. Washington State (2-7, 0-6): The only chance the Cougars have is if the Bruins are still extremely hungover from their dominating victory over Arizona last week.
