Big Ten · ACC · Pac-12
The Pac-12 has a few teams with some really ugly records against the spread. California has yet to cover in three tries, while Oregon State and USC are just 1-3 ATS. On the flip side, Oregon, UCLA and Washington State are perfect against the number, and have made bettors quite the profit thus far.

This weekend marks a full slate of conference games, with 10 of the league's 12 teams hitting the gridiron. The aforementioned UCLA Bruins, who are a perfect 3-0 SU and ATS, will have off this weekend before heading for Salt Lake City to face Utah Thursday, Oct. 3.

Last weekend, the league went 7-1 straight up and 5-3 ATS. The home teams were 5-0 straight up and 4-1 ATS, while road teams were 2-1 straight up and 1-2 ATS. The 'over' went 5-3 last week, with the 'over' going 3-2 for the home teams.

Colorado at Oregon State (Pac-12 Network, 3:00 p.m. ET)
The Buffaloes have been quite the surprise this season, with QB Connor Wood and WR Paul Richardson combining to form quite the dynamic duo. It's a far cry from what we have seen from CU the past two years, when the cupboard has been mostly bare. It remains to be seen whether or not the Buffs have any rust, however, as they haven't taken the field since Sept. 7 due to a cancelled game Sept. 14 due to the Colorado floods, and a bye the following week. In fact, Oregon State has played twice as many games as Colorado, and they're battle tested on the road, and at home. Colorado has covered each of its two games this season, while it has been a slow-go for the Beavers. They're just 1-3 against the number. The 'over' has been the play in Beav games this season, with QB Sean Mannion and RB Brandin Cooks making for quite a tandem. RB Storm Woods (concussion) returned to practice this week, but is sidelined again, meaning RB Terron Ward would draw his second straight start.

Arizona at Washington (FOX, 7:00 p.m. ET)
It's a battle of 3-0 teams in Seattle when the Wildcats and Huskies do battle. If Arizona is to have success, they'll need RB Ka'Deem Carey to do exactly what he did last season in the meeting with U-Dub. Carey rolled for 172 rushing yards on 29 attempts. A stout running game would help to take the pressure off QB B.J. Denker. The offense starts and stops with RB Bishop Sankey for Washington. He has been a machine this season, rolling up 148.7 yards per game on the ground, which is second in the nation. QB Keith Price is no slouch either, tossing for seven scores through the first three games. Arizona is just 2-5 ATS in their past seven games against a team with a winning record, while Washington is 13-3 ATS in their past 16 home games, and 4-1 ATS in their past five outings against teams with a winning mark.

Stanford at Washington State (ESPN, 10:00 p.m. ET)
Stanford meets up with surprising WaZu in Seattle, and it is a really tricky spot. However, if you can get the Cardinal in single digits, you might be doing yourself a huge favor. The Cardinal are 7-1 ATS in their past eight meetings as a road team against the Cougars, with the favorite going 5-2 ATS in the past seven meetings, and the road team cashing in each of the past four. Keep an eye on the total in this one. The under is 5-2 in Stanford's past seven road games, while the under has gone 1-3 in Washington State's four games this season. The under is 5-0-1 in the past six meetings at Washington State, and 8-2-1 in the past 11 meetings in this series overall.

California at Oregon (Pac-12 Network, 10:30 p.m. ET)
The scoreboard operator at Autzen Stadium has had plenty of practice keeping pace with Oregon's fast-paced attack, and he/she will be working hard early and often this week. The Ducks have scored in less than two minutes in 23 of their past 28 scoring possessions this season, and they have outscored their opponents 184-27 through three games. Freshman QB Jared Goff was unable to engineer an upset of Ohio State in their last game two weeks ago, but he looked good in throwing for 371 yards and three scores. He will need to outproduce Oregon QB Marcus Mariota if the Bears are to pull off the monumental upset. Cal is 0-5 ATS in the past five Pac-12 games, 4-11 ATS in their past 15 road contests, and 3-13 ATS in the past 16 games overall. Meanwhile, Oregon has covered 10 of its past 11. The total is set at 84 points, but be careful with that. The 'under' has cashed in six straight meetings in Eugene, and five of the past six overall.

Southern California at Arizona State (ESPN2, 10:30 p.m. ET)
USC looks to level its conference record at 1-1, and, more importantly, a victory would go a long way in restroring credibility for the Trojans. They're just not viewed as a power following a 10-7 setback to Washington State earlier in the season. AZ State was dropped down a peg last week in Palo Alto, proving they're not quite ready for prime time in a 42-28 loss. They made a valiant comeback after trailing 39-7 in that game. If the Sun Devils are to get untracked, RB Marion Grice would need to post triple-digit yards. This will be interesting as far as the total is concerned. The 'under' has cashed in all four of USC's games, while the 'over' has connected in each of AZ State's three tilts. The Trojans are 2-5 ATS in their past seven trips to Tempe, and 1-4 ATS in the past five meetings overall. The 'over' has come through in five of the past seven meetings in Tempe.
