Big Ten · ACC · Pac-12
There have been a few constants for bettors in the Pac-12. It's no surprise that Oregon has been cleaning up, going 3-0 SU and ATS, and the 'over' has cashed in all three of their games to this point, too. However, how many people saw Washington State emerging as a cover king? They have covered the spread in each of their first three contests. Bettors have also enjoyed success bettings overs in California and Utah games, as the total has gone over in each of their first three games.

The conference schedule won't get revved up full-time until next weekend, but this week the only league game features two Top 25 teams squaring off. Arizona State sure looked for real slaying Wisconsin in Tempe last week, now they hit the road trying to drop the Stanford Cardinal in Palo Alto. The league's marquee member, Oregon, is on a bye this weekend.

Last weekend, the league went 9-2 straight up and 5-6 ATS. The home teams were 5-2 straight up and 3-4 ATS, while road teams were 4-0 straight up and 2-2 ATS. The 'over' went 7-4 last week, with the 'over' going 5-2 for the home teams.

Utah State at Southern California (ABC, 3:30 p.m. ET)
Utah State might not have the pedigree that USC football has, but they are a damn fine squad. The Aggies will definitely not be a pushover, as QB Chuckie Keeton has completed 78.1 percent of his passes to date, throwing for 923 yards with 12 touchdowns and just one interception. He is a dual-threat QB, too, as he can be dangerous with his feet when given the opportunity. He has thrown for five scores in each of the past two games, so USC would be wise not to overlook USU. The Aggies are 13-2-1 ATS in their past 16 games overall, 6-1-1 ATS in their past eight road contests, 11-2 ATS in their past 13 non-conference tilts, and 19-7-1 ATS in their past 27 against teams with a losing record. The light might have finally went off for the Trojans last week, as they humped up on visiting Boston College after a shocking home loss to Washington State the week prior. Still, USC is just 1-5 ATS in their past six games overall, and 2-6 ATS in their past eight against a team with a winning record. Keep an eye on the total in this one, too. The under is 12-4 in Utah State's past 16 on grass, and the under is 3-0 for USC this season, and 5-0 in their past five overall.

Arizona State at Stanford (FOX, 7:00 p.m. ET)
There is no rest for AZ State after their solid 32-30 win against Wisconsin last week. They're right back at it against another tough opponent, this time on the road, in Palo Alto. The Sun Devils have had a tough time covering lately, going 2-5 ATS in their past seven against a team with a winning record. They're also 16-33-3 ATS in their past 52 road games against a team with a winning home record. Lastly, they have followed up an ATS loss with another loss in seven of their past nine. For Stanford, they traversed the country and took care of business at Michie Stadium in West Point, but looked a little sluggish in doing so. Still, cut them a little slack since they were dealing with a three-hour time change, essentialy playing when they'd normally be finishing up breakfast at home. The Cardinal are 5-2 ATS in their past seven against a team with a winning record, and 4-1 ATS in their past five Pac-12 tilts. In this series, the favorite is 4-0-1 ATS in the past five matchups, and the Sun Devils are a paltry 1-5 ATS in their past six trips to Palo Alto.

Oregon State at San Diego State (CBSSN, 7:30 p.m. ET)
Oregon State might have been involved in one of the most exciting games in all of college football last week, edging Utah 51-48 in overtime in Salt Lake City. The win didn't come without a huge price tag, however, as the team lost starting RB Storm Woods (concussion) to a head injury. Woods was actually taken off on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance on the field. However, it turned out to be 'just' a concussion, which is great news, as it could have been much worse. Anyway, RB Terron Ward is expected to start in Woods' stead, and that major piece of the offense being on the sidelines makes Oregon State a less than attractive play, although high-flying QB Sean Mannion and WR Brandin Cooks are still healthy. The Aztecs are 0-5 ATS in their past five non-conference games, and they're 3-10 ATS in their past 13 against Pac-12 teams. Each of these teams lost to an FCS team in their openers, with Oregon State slipping up against Eastern Washington and San Diego State getting crushed at home by Eastern Illinois.

Utah at Brigham Young (ESPN2, 10:15 p.m. ET)
As usual, Lavell Edwards Stadium in Provo will be rocking when in-state rival Utah pays a visit. The Utes are going to be angry, too, after dropping a heartbreaker at home to Oregon State 51-48 in overtime. BYU will be looking for a little revenge, too, after dropping a 24-21 decision to Utah last season in Salt Lake City. The Utes are 1-5 ATS in their past six road games, while BYU is 10-3 ATS in their past 13 games against a team with a winning record. The total might be the play in this one, as the 'over' has cashed in four straight for Utah, and is 4-1 in their past five against non-conference teams. The over is 4-1 in BYU's past five against Pac-12 teams. The Utes have covered four of the past five meetings, and they're 7-2 ATS in their past nine trips to Provo. The underdog is also 13-3 ATS in the past 16 meetings in this series, which takes a two-year break after Saturday's game.
