We've finally hit the meaty portion of the Pac-12 schedule, as conference games begin in earnest today. There are four conference games slated, while Colorado heads east to play the cheatin' Buckeyes of Ohio State.
We'll make predictions on all the games that feature South division teams, as the fight for the South crown begins now.
Like I said, Colorado begins our discussion. A win in Columbus against tOSU would be an extremely big deal for the Buffs, who have played well despite a 1-2 record this year. Colorado has four non-con games this season, allowed by the NCAA because they played a road game in Hawaii this year. I predict a miracle win for Colorado. Buffs bite back, 27-19.
UCLA rolls up to Oregon State to face the ironically toothless Beavers. Neither team has a quarterback, so this should be an interesting experiment. UCLA manages to win, 24-20.
The Arizona St. Sun Devils have a big reception planned for the hated USC Trojans. Tempe will be a-rockin' tonight as the Devils wear all-maroon uniforms. Matt Barkley thinks Vontaze Burfict is a dirty player, ensuring that Barkley gets dirty on the ground tonight. Sun Devils show up, unlike last weekend. ASU wins, 34-31.
Finally, Arizona hosts Oregon in a battle of haves against have-nots. The Ducks might get a tough battle this evening, but you have to think they will overcome Nick Foles and the Wildcats. Darron Thomas is just... unstoppable (unless you're an SEC team). Oregon takes care of business, 38-17.
