Big Ten · ACC · Pac-12
It was an interesting opening week in the Pac-12 last weekend. The big shocker came in Corvallis, as Oregon State was stunned by FCS opponent Eastern Washington in a shootout. It might have also been a mild surprise when Washington easily dispatched then-Top 20 opponent Boise State by a 38-6 score. The Huskies can savor that victory for at least one more week, as they and UCLA are two Pac-12 teams with a bye already.

We'll get our first looks of the season at Arizona State and Stanford. Neither figure to lose their games straight-up, but it might be a stretch to cover big numbers at home given that their opponents each already have one game under their belts.

Last weekend, the league went 7-3 straight up and 6-4 ATS. The home teams were 5-2 straight up and ATS, while road teams were 2-1 straight up and ATS. The 'over' went 6-4 in Week 1, with the 'over' going 5-2 for the home teams.

Oregon at Virginia (ABC/ESPN2, 3:30 p.m. ET)
Oregon has few problems last week in their tune-up against an overmatched FCS opponent from Nicholls State. The Ducks will travel cross-country to Charlottesville, getting a little bit more of a test. Virginia knocked off Brigham Young by a 19-16 score, covering at home for the first time in nine games (1-7-1 ATS) at Scott Stadium. Oregon is 6-0 ATS in their past six road games against a team with a winning home record, and 8-0 ATS in their past eight games on grass. The Ducks are also 8-1 ATS in their past nine games overall. The total trends are rather contrasted, as the 'over' is 5-2 in Oregon's past seven road games, but the 'under' is 11-3 in UVA's past 14 home contests.

Hawaii at Oregon State (Pac-12 Network, 8:00 p.m. ET)

The Warriors hit the mainland for a battle between two teams looking for their first wins of the season. Hawaii kept it surprisingly close in a 30-13 home setback against Southern California. Meanwhile, Oregon State was shocked by FCS opponent Eastern Washington in a 49-46 setback. The Beavers showed off an impressive offense, led by QB Sean Mannion and WR Brandin Cooks, but their defense couldn't stop anyone. The Beavers are a nearly four-touchdown favorite, so the Warriors are likely to be a popular pick. Hawaii is 5-1 ATS in their past six games against Pac-12 opponents, including Week 1. They're also 8-3 ATS i ntheir past 11 road games against a team with a losing home record. The Beavers are 22-10-1 ATS in their past 33 games against a team with a losing record, but just 8-18-1 ATS in their past 27 games in the month of September.

Washington State at Southern California (FOX Sports 1, 10:30 p.m. ET)
The Cougars hit the road for a second straight week. Last week, they had a cross-country trek to Auburn, falling 31-24, but covering in an entertaining game. USC is back on the mainland after sleepwalking through a 30-13 win at Hawaii in the opener. The offense struggled at times, and WR Marqise Lee seemed to have trouble concentrating at times. USC is a little more than a two-touchdown favorite in this one, looking to snap a four-game ATS losing streak. USC is 2-5 ATS in their past seven conference games. Washington State is 5-0 ATS in their past five games against teams with a winning record, but just 1-3-1 ATS in their past five games in September.

San Jose State at Stanford (Pac-12 Network, 11:00 p.m.)
San Jose State opened their season with a 24-0 win against Sacramento State, but now they'll get a true measuring stick game against a Top 5 opponent. The one thing the Spartans have as an advantage over the Cardinal is having one game in tow. Stanford will be playing their first game of the season, so it might take them a little while to get their sea legs, while the Spartans have already worked together for 60 minutes in game conditions. San Jose State might be a popular selection considering they are 13-3 ATS in their past 16 road games, and 22-6 ATS in their past 28 games overall. They're also 19-7 ATS in their past 26 non-conference battles. However, Stanford is 8-2 ATS in the past 10 meetings in this series, and San Jose State has covered just once in the past eight trips to Palo Alto. The favorite is 8-2 ATS in the past 10 meetings in this series, with the home team covering eight of the past nine. That bodes well for Stanford, even as a near four-touchdown favorite.
