Big Ten · ACC · Pac-12
The Pac-12 has a couple of national spotlight games this weekend, including Washington-Stanford. That will be an exciting matchup, as we see how good the Huskies really are. Arizona State heads to Dallas to mix it up with Notre Dame, too, although that game has lost a little of its luster with recent losses by both teams. Still, it could be a very entertaining affair in Jerry World.

It is disappointing to see Oregon State off this weekend for a bye. They have been a bettor's friend lately, at least when it comes to the 'over', going over the total in four of their five games with QB Sean Mannion and that high powered offense. It will also be interesting to see if Cal can finally cover a spread. They're a slight dog at home to Washington State, who has covered four of its five games this season.

UCLA kicked off this week's schedule with a 34-27 win at Utah, with the total coming just 'under' 62 1/2. Four Pac-12 teams remain unbeaten, and one will fall by the wayside in Palo Alto in a battle of unbeatens.

Washington State at California (FOX Sports 1, 4:00 p.m. ET)
Things haven't turned around completely under Mike Leach on the Palouse, as evidenced by last weekend's drumming at the hands of visiting Stanford (in Seattle). However, the Cougars have at least been respectable in games against non-ranked opponents. Washington State is 5-1 ATS in the past six games, with that lone non-cover coming against Stanford. They are 4-1-1 ATS in the past six road games against a team with a losing home record. Washington State can go a long way toward respectability, and a potential bowl berth, with a win in Berkeley. It has been a disaster in Cal lately. They have failed to cover in the past six home games, they're 0-6 ATS in their past six conference tilts, and they're a dismal 3-14 ATS in the past 17 outings. However, freshman QB Jared Goff looks pretty impressive, and they can score points. The 'over' is 3-1 in Cal's four games this season, and Goff will be a huge factor if they win or lose this game. Lastly, Washington State is 5-1 ATS in the past six trips to Cal, and the road team has covered seven of the past nine meetings in this series.

Oregon at Colorado (Pac-12 Network, 6:00 p.m. ET)
Like Clemson in the ACC, the first thing to look for in upcoming Oregon games is the total. This weekend it is set around 69. Some shops you might be able to get it at 68. Oregon has just been an absolute machine, with the 'over' coming through in 25 of the past 35 Pac-12 battles, and 35 of their past 52 games overall. The 'over' is also 4-1 in their past five road outings. Oregon has killed it against the number, too, going 4-0 ATS in their past four games against teams with a winning record, 10-1 ATS in their past 11 road games, and 7-1 ATS inside the conference. They've covered 11 of their past 12 games overall. The Buffs, on the other hand, have covered just three of the past 12 home games, and seven of their past 25. Colorado is showing some signs of life after a miserable season last year, but despite the heroics of WR Paul Richardson, Colorado isn't quite ready for prime time just yet.

Arizona State at Notre Dame - in Dallas, TX (NBC, 7:30 p.m. ET)
AZ State enters this game as a six-point favorite, and that might raise a few eyebrows east of the Mississippi. However, the Sun Devils are good, and they can score early and often. Just ask Wisconsin. Arizona State has covered five of their past seven games, and the 'over' is a perfect 4-0 in their past four neutral-site games. The 'over' is also 23-8 in their past 31 games, and 16-5 in their past 21 games against an opponent with a winning record. For Notre Dame, they have failed miserably in bigger games. They're 0-3-1 ATS in their past four against teams with a winning mark, 0-5-1 ATS in their past six overall, and 0-5 ATS in their past five on fieldturf. Of course, AZ State is 0-4-1 ATS in their past five on fieldturf, so that's a wash. This one is offense vs. defense, and it will be interesting to see who can come out victorious.

Washington at Stanford (ESPN, 10:30 p.m. ET)
Is Washington all the way back to relevance on the national stage, or just a little bit of the way back? We'll know more after this weekend's trip to Palo Alto. The Cardinal, a seven-point favorite, look for revenge after being stopped 17-13 in Seattle last season in a Thursday game. If Stanford wants to avoid losing two in a row in this series, they'll need to find a way to put the clamps on RB Bishop Sankey, who has galloped for 151.8 yards per game on the ground, tops in the nation. Stanford is looking for its 13th straight win since that aforementioned setback to UW, and they have scored at least 34 points in each of their first four games this season. This one has the potential to be thrilling from an offensive perspective. Washington is just 1-7 ATS in their past eight road games against a team with a winning home mark, but they are 8-2 ATS in their past 10 games overall. Stanford is 19-6-1 ATS in their past 26 conference games, and 7-2 ATS in their past nine against teams with a winning record.
