Big Ten · ACC · Pac-12

The Pac-12 kicked off the schedule with a tussle between UCLA and Washington Friday night. That is the undercard for the main event which is Stanford-Southern California in the Los Angeles Coliseum in prime time. While USC might not be ranked in the AP Top 25, they have been playing better than anyone in the country lately, and this should be a knock-down, drag-out fight.

Another game of interest is the late-night game between Oregon State and Arizona State. This should be a high-scoring affair with plenty of aerials. Both QB Sean Mannion of the Beavers and QB Taylor Kelly of the Sun Devils can sling it with the best of them, and that could very well be a game with numbers resembling a video game when the dust clears Saturday night. Enjoy!

Washington State at Arizona (Pac-12 Network, 2:00 p.m. ET)
The Cougs roll into Tucson looking to keep their slim postseason aspirations alive. While the wins might not be piling up in the standings, there have been plenty of covers for bettors when it comes to WaZu. The Cougs are 4-0 ATS in the past four road games, and 8-3 ATS in their past 11 games against a team with a winning record. They're also 7-3 ATS in their past 10 games overall, and 12-3-1 ATS in their past 16 games following an ATS loss. On the flip side, Arizona has failed to cover in five of its past seven conference tilts, and they're just 2-6 ATS in the past eight home games against a team with a losing road record. Still, it's awfully hard to trust Washington State, as they aren't the best at stopping the run, allowing a whopping 7.9 yards per carry. That has Arizona RB Ka'Deem Carey, one of the best in the nation, licking his chops.

Utah at Oregon (FOX Sports 1, 4:00 p.m. ET)
The Utes head to Eugene looking to slay Goliath, but that's a pretty tall order. Utah has been night and day as a team at home as compared to on the road. The Utes are just 1-5 ATS in the past six road games, and 2-7 ATS in their past nine conference tilts. Oregon is still smarting from a spanking at the hands of Stanford last time out, and it could be ugly for the Utes as the Ducks take out their aggression. Oregon is still 14-3 ATS in their past 17 games overall, and 10-3 ATS in their past 13 conference battles. They're also 33-16-2 ATS in the past 51 games against a team with a losing record.

Stanford at Southern California (ABC, 8:00 p.m. ET)
Stanford heads to the Coliseum for one of the most anticipated games in all of college football this weekend. Lately, Stanford has had its way with USC, especially as far as the books are concerned. Stanford is 4-0 ATS in their past four trips to Los Angeles, and 5-1 ATS in the past six meetings overall. In addition, the road team is 6-2 ATS in the past eight battles in this series, while the underdog is 5-1 ATS in the past six meetings overall. All trends appear to point to Stanford, except for the latter. In addition, the Trojans are 0-5 ATS in their past five home games against a team with a winning road record.

Oregon State at Arizona State (Pac-12 Network, 9:30 p.m. ET)
This game has the potential to be a shootout, with plenty of offensive stars dotting the rosters of the two sides. QB Sean Mannion and WR Brandin Cooks have been a dynamic duo, and TE Connor Hamlett is a weapon, as are RBs Storm Woods and Terron Ward. The Sun Devils have one of the best, and most underrated quarterbacks in Taylor Kelly. In fact, the AZ State passing offense is racking up 490.4 yards per game through the air. Oregon State is 21-9-1 ATS in their past 31 road games, and 15-6-1 ATS in their past 22 road outings against a team with a winning home record. For AZ State, they're 6-1 ATS in their past seven home games, and 5-2-1 ATS in their past eight home games against a team with a winning road record. In this series, the Beavers are 3-0-1 ATS in their past four meetings, but 2-5-1 ATS in their past eight meetings in Tempe.
