Stanford at UCLA (Pac-12 Network, 3:00 p.m.)

Colorado at California (Pac-12 Network, 7:00 p.m.)
The Buffaloes hit the road looking to snap an ugly six-game losing skid. It's hard to believe Colorado opened 5-0 SU and are now in danger of missing a bowl game, but it's true. Cal was off last week due to poor air quality with the destructive California wildfires. They're well rested, and Vegas feels good about their chances as they're 12 1/2-point favorites as of Wednesday morning.

Notre Dame at Southern California (ABC, 8:00 p.m.)
