Empire Picks- Week 7


This week features another Thursday night game for the Pac 12, as well as a collision between north and south favorites. Arizona gets a much needed week off to regroup after the firing of Mike Stoops, and Colorado will make another attempt to end its misery on the road.

Pac 12

USC @ Cal
Line: USC -3
Prediction: USC suffered its only loss this season on the road, and will wear those travel whites for a second time on Thursday night. Full Preview HERE.
USC 38, Cal 31

Colorado @ Washington
Line: Washington -15.5
Prediction: Washington is flying under the radar and quietly getting it done. The Huskies are 4-1 and undefeated in conference, suffering their only loss in Nebraska. Colorado has only managed to beat in-state rival Colorado State and is staring down the barrel at a 6th loss on Saturday.
Washington 35, Colorado 13

BYU @ Oregon State
Line: BYU -3
Prediction: The Beavers finally moved into the win column last week and is still looking to salvage the season. The Cougars have won their last four games versus Pac opponents.
BYU 24, OSU 21

#7 Stanford @ Washington State
Line: Stanford -21
Prediction: Washington State’s start has been surprising, but it has yet to face a ranked opponent until now.
Stanford 45, WSU 20

Utah @ Pitt
Line: Pitt -6.5
Prediction: For the Utes, Pitt is a breath of fresh air, allowing a break from a Pac 12 schedule that has them still winless in conference.
Utah 24, Pitt 23

#18 Arizona State @ #9 Oregon
Line: Oregon -14
Prediction: The greatest Duck has a bad wing, leaving the team to perform without him. The table is set for the Sun Devils to make a statement in what may be a preview of the conference championship game.
Oregon 41, ASU 35

Bye: Arizona, UCLA

Landscape

#11 Michigan @ #21 Michigan State
Line: Michigan State -2.5
Prediction: I’m still not sure what the Spartans have done to earn their ranking, but it should be stripped come Sunday.
Michigan 34, MSU 28

Ohio State @ #16 Illinois
Line: Illinois -3
Prediction: The Buckeyes may be struggling, but expect a positive response after last week’s meltdown against Nebraska.
OSU 27, Illinois 24

Upset Alert

#20 Baylor @ #21 Texas A&M
Line: A&M -9.5
Prediction: The Aggies are 0-2 versus ranked opponents this season, and here comes Robert Griffin—-the third.
Baylor 42, aTm 36

Last Week: 5-3

Season Scoreboard

Pac 12: 33-8
