Pac-12 Report - Week 9
Editor's Note: Joe Williams has hit 61% of his college football selections through eight weeks. Don't miss out on Week 9 Winners!

Big Ten · ACC · Pac-12
The Pac-12 had a marquee games of its own last week, and unlikely Florida State-Clemson in the ACC, the UCLA-Stanford game was a pretty decent contest. In the end, the Cardinal bumped the Bruins from the ranks of the unbeaten, leaving only Oregon as the west coast team with serious national championship aspirations.

It will be an interesting week in the Pac-12. Bettors have been pounding Arizona State overs this season, but they are on a bye. And Washington State has been surprising effective against the spread, covering six of their eight contests. But they, too, are off this weekend. However, there is still plenty of money to be made within the Pac-12.

Utah at Southern California (Pac-12 Network, 4:00 p.m. ET)
The Utes hit the road to meet the Trojans in a battle of 4-3 teams. Utah upended Stanford at Rice-Eccles two weeks ago, but then lost straight-up and ATS on the road in Tucson last weekend. They are now just 1-4 ATS in their past five road contests, and 1-6 ATS in their past seven Pac-12 games overall. Plus, Utah is 2-5 ATS in their past seven against a team with a winning record. USC is also 2-5 ATS in their past seven conference tilts, and just 3-9 ATS in their past 12 against a team with a winning record. If you're to pay attention to this game, it might be because of the total. The total is set at 54, and the trends all seem to indicate the under. The under is 4-0 in Utah's past four outings, and 6-2 in their past eight road games. The under is 7-2 in USC's past nine games, and 34-16-1 in their past 51 home games.

UCLA at Oregon (ESPN, 7:00 p.m. ET)
The difficult schedule continues for UCLA. The Bruins were dumped 24-10 in Palo Alto, and now they need to contend with the high-octane Ducks. This game could be fun, and hopefully the scoreboard operator at Autzen Stadium has limbered up his/her fingers. UCLA is 5-1 ATS in their past six games, and 4-1 ATS in their past five road games against a team with a winning home mark. Meanwhile, Oregon is 14-3 ATS in their past 17, 9-2 ATS in their past 11 conference battles, and 6-1 ATS in their past seven against a team with a winning record. The only real negative trend is Oregon is 1-5 ATS in the past six home games against a team with a winning road record, and they failed to cover last weekend at home against Washington State. Does that mean a 23-point line against QB Brett Hundley and the Bruins is a little too much? We'll soon see.

Arizona at Colorado (Pac-12 Network, 8:00 p.m. ET)
Colorado opened the season 2-0 SU and ATS, and things looked to be turning around after a dismal season last year. Then, the floods came in the state of Colorado, their home game against Fresno State was cancelled, and after a three-week break, the Buffs looked like their former selves. Colorado was waxed at Oregon State. They were waxed at home against Oregon. And they were waxed at Arizona State. They did step out of conference to pound Charleston Southern last weekend, but back inside the Pac-12, they could very well be waxed again this weekend. The Wildcats are looking pretty sharp, beating a solid Utah team last week. RB Ka'Deem Carey is piecing together another strong season, averaging six yards per tote. Arizona routed Colorado 56-31 Nov. 10, 2012, and it wouldn't be shocking to see a similar result here. While Arizona is 2-5 ATS in the past seven Pac-12 games, Colorado is just 7-21 ATS in their past 28 conference tilts. Plus, Colorado is just 4-10 ATS in their past 14 at home.

Stanford at Oregon State (ESPN, 10:30 p.m. ET)
I've actually watched each of the past six Oregon State games, and they are a fun team to watch. QB Sean Mannion is one of the best, and perhaps most underrated, quarterbacks in the nation, and WR Brandin Cooks is equally efficient and extraordinary. And with RB Storm Woods back from concussion, this offense is hitting on all cylinders again. They'll be put to the test against a solid Stanford defense, which limited UCLA to just 10 points last week. The Cardinal are 17-8 ATS in their past 25 games against a team with a winning record, and 35-17-1 ATS in the past 53 games overall. Plus, they're 19-7-1 ATS in the past 27 road games, and 20-8-1 ATS in their past 29 Pac-12 tilts. Oregon State is 4-0 ATS in the past four conference battles, and 9-3-1 ATS in their past 13 games against a team with a winning record. Head-to-head, the home team is 5-1 ATS in the past six meetings. However, the favorite is 5-2 ATS in the past seven, and the Cardinal are 4-1 ATS in their past five meetings with the Beavers. However, Stanford has covered just two of their past eight trips to Corvallis.

California at Washington (FOX Sports 1, 11:00 p.m. ET)
The Cal Bears have been horrendous, and last weekend they were crushed at home by Oregon State. Washington has dropped three straight at Stanford, home against Oregon and at Arizona State. The Huskies are going to be awfully ornery, and they could take their frustrations out on the conference's punching bag. Cal has failed to cover in each of its seven games. while Washington is 3-1 ATS at home this season. Washington is also 13-3 ATS in their past 16 home games, and 9-2 ATS in their past 11 against teams with a losing record. In this series, the underdog is 5-2 ATS in the past seven meetings, but Cal is 0-4 ATS in their past four meetings with U-Dub.

Byes
Arizona State, Washington State
