Pac-12 Report - Week 14

Editor's Note: Joe Williams has hit 57% of his college football selections through 13 weeks. Don't miss out on Week 14 Winners!

Big Ten · ACC · Pac-12
The Pac-12 Conference wraps up the regular season, and there are a ton of great rivalry games on the docket.

The Apple Cup kicks off the weekend in Seattle, as two bowl eligible teams from the Evergreen State renew their heated rivalry. For the first time in a while, both teams are already bowl eligible, but looking for a win to improve their bowl game, and subsequent haul in terms of money. After the Apple Cup goes final, we get the latest installment of the Civil War from Eugene. Oregon State has struggled mightily over the past month, and their once-potent offense has quieted down significantly. And Oregon is licking their wounds after a stunning beatdown from Arizona last week in the desert. They'll be an angry bunch of Ducks, looking to take out their aggressions on their rivals.

That's just the undercard, though. On Saturday, we get a pair of battles featuring Top 25 teams, and the Grand Canyon State rivalry, featuring Arizona and Arizona State. It will be a great weekend of football watching out west.

Washington State at Washington - FRIDAY - (FOX, 3:30 p.m. ET)
The Cougs get no respect from Vegas, entering their rivalry game as a two-touchdown underdog. Take notice that WaZu is 8-3 ATS so far this season. Washington State is bowl eligible for the first time since 2006, but they're looking for a signature win, and to guarantee a spot. While nine teams are bowl eligible, only seven are assured spots in the postseason due to tie-ins. QB Connor Halliday looks to stay hot after going for nearly 500 passing yards last weekend with four TD tosses against Utah. For Washington, their big gun is RB Bishop Sankey, who is looking to bump former Huskies RB Corey Dillon from the perch. Dillon once rolled for 1,695 rushing yards in a single season, and Sankey is 121 yards away from eclipsing that mark. Look for Washington State to see a steady diet of No. 25. The home team is 4-1 ATS in the past five meetings, while the Cougs are 4-9 ATS in the past 13 meetings.

Oregon State at Oregon - FRIDAY - (FOX Sports 1, 7:00 p.m. ET)
If you're looking to make a play in this game Friday, the over might be your best bet. The over is 10-3 in Oregon State's past 13 games against a team with a winning record, and 5-2 in their past seven road games against a team with a winning home mark. The over is 29-10-1 in Oregon's past 40 home games, and 4-1 in their past five home games against a team with a winning road record. In this series, the over is 5-0 in the past five meetings in Eugene, and 10-1 in the past 11 meetings overall. As far as the number, Oregon State is 4-1 ATS in their past five road games, and 18-7-1 ATS in their past 26 road games against a team with a winning home record. Oregon is struggling against the spread lately, going 1-4 ATS in their past five games overall, and 2-5 ATS in their past seven home contests against a team with a winning road record. Oregon enters as a 22-point favorite, and Oregon State certainly has the guns to cover if they can re-discover their offense and stop turning it over.

Colorado at Utah (Pac-12 Network, 2:00 p.m. ET)
In the 'Who Cares Bowl', Colorado and Utah look to end on a positive note. It's hard to believe that Utah's only conference win in eight tries came against Stanford. What happened there? The Buffaloes enter 9-21 ATS in their past 30 conference tilts, and 2-7 ATS in their past nine road games against a team with a losing home record. Utah is 12-4 ATS in their past 16 against a team with a losing record, and 8-3 ATS in their past 11 home games. They're also 5-2 ATS in their past seven home games against a team with a losing road record.

Notre Dame at Stanford (FOX, 7:00 p.m. ET)
The Irish head to Palo Alto as a two-touchdown dog. Notre Dame is just 2-2 on the road so far this season, while Stanford is 6-0 at home. It will be interesting to see if Stanford can continue their covering ways. They are 4-1 ATS in their past five home games, and 11-3 ATS in their past 14 non-conference tilts. The Cardinal are 35-16-1 ATS in their past 52 games, and 19-9 ATS in their past 28 games against a team with a winning record. However, as far as the recent head-to-head trends are concerned, the road team is 5-2 ATS in the past seven meetings, and Notre Dame has covered five of the past seven. If you could get the Irish at 14 1/2 points, that might be a big difference.

UCLA at Southern California (ABC, 8:00 p.m. ET)
The battle of Los Angeles is certainly a game worth watching. That didn't look like it would be the case earlier this season, but the stock of the Bruins is down a little in recent weeks, while the stock of the Trojans is soaring. In fact, who could have predicted that USC would enter this game with a better overall win-loss record than UCLA about eight weeks ago? The Trojans rested WR Marqise Lee (shin) last weekend in Colorado, but his absence didn't slow down the train. They spanked Colorado 47-29, now set their sights on their rivals from Westwood. It's also Senior Day at SC, and they look to keep up their momentum. UCLA has not won at USC since the 1997 season when QB Cade McNown was under center. UCLA is 1-4 ATS in their past five following a straight-up loss, while USC is 1-5 ATS in their past six home games against a team with a winning road record. USC is 5-1 ATS in their past six conference tilts, and 7-1 ATS in their past eight home games against the Bruins. The home team is 8-2 ATS in the past 10 meetings. You might be compelled to play the under in this one, too. The under is 5-0 in UCLA's past five road games, and 6-2 in their past eight against a team with a winning record. USC is 4-0 in their past four agaisnt a team with a winning record, and 10-4 in their past 14 games. The under is 5-2 in the past seven meetings at the L.A. Coliseum, and 6-1 in the past seven meetings.

Arizona at Arizona State (Pac-12 Network, 9:30 p.m. ET)
All eyes will be on the Wildcats, as college football fans and bettors see what they can do for an encore. Arizona destroyed Oregon last weekend, and head into their rivalry game with a little wind in their sails. Arizona is just 2-6 ATS in their past eight against a team with a winning record, but that didn't matter last weekend. The road team has cashed in six of the past eight meetings in this series, and the dog has cashed in 13 of the past 16 meetings overall. The total trends are all over the board, although the under looks to be the play. The under is 4-0 in Arizona's past four games, and 4-1 in their past five against a team with a winning record. The over is 5-2 in their past seven home games, and 27-11 in their past 38 games overall. The over is also 19-7 in AZ State's past 26 against a team with a winning record. In this series, though, the under is 5-0 in the past five meetings in Tempe/Glendale, and 9-3 in the past 12 meetings overall.
