Ducks should cruise past Huskies

This week’s picks are as follows:

OREGON over WASHINGTON … the high-flying Ducks have beaten the Huskies so many times in a row that it’s hardly a rivalry anymore. Then again, Washington looked ready for prime time last weekend against Stanford and will be loaded for bear Saturday in the fancy new Husky Stadium. Unfortunately, they’re playing Ducks, not Bears.

STANFORD over UTAH … the Cardinal showed all sorts of vulnerability on defense in squeaking past Washington and could be in trouble in front of one of the most rabid crowds in the Pac-12.

OREGON STATE over WASHINGTON STATE … believe it or not, the winner of this one will be just one step from bowl eligibility. Another sure sign The End is near.

ARIZONA STATE over COLORADO … the Sun Devils still think they can win the Pac-12 title. Fat chance.

MICHIGAN over PENN STATE … after getting whipped by lowly Indiana, the Nittany Lions are beginning to feel the effects of all those sanctions the NCAA levied.

BOISE STATE over UTAH STATE … the Broncos are not up to their usual standards, but still have enough to stop an Aggie team devastated by the loss of its talented quarterback.

OKLAHOMA over TEXAS … there was a time when this was the most anticipated game in college football.

BAYLOR over KANSAS STATE … the Bears are breaking scoreboards all over the country.

UPSET OF THE WEEK: Aggies over Montana … this would be an upset of historic proportions, but with two straight strong defensive performances, the Aggies are beginning to think they’re invincible. In the Big Sky Conference, the path to the title almost always goes through Missoula. Take the Ags by 3 and bring your Rosaries. (Upset record: 2-4).

ROUT OF THE WEEK: UCLA over Cal … the good news is the Bears’ freshman quarterback is setting all kinds of passing records. The bad news is the Bears’ defense couldn’t stop a Pop Warner team. Then again, Cal can at least say they played in the Rose Bowl this year, given that Pasadena is where the Bruins play all their home games. (Upset record: 6-0).

DON’T BET ON IT, BUT: Georgia over Missouri … watch out for the Tigers. (Don’t bet record: 5-1).

FIVE EASY PICKS: This week’s guaranteed winners are Alabama (over Kentucky), Auburn (over Western Carolina), Northern Illinois (over Akron), TCU (over Kansas) and North Dakota State (over Missouri State). (FEP record: 30-0).

OTHER GAMES: Clemson over Boston College, Cincinnati over Temple, Michigan State over Indiana, Virginia Tech over Pittsburgh, Buffalo over Western Michigan, Tulsa over UTEP, Marshall over Florida Atlantic, Texas Tech over Iowa State, Ohio U. over Central Michigan, Army over Eastern Michigan, Troy over Georgia State, Texas A&M over Mississippi, Ball State over Kent State, Mississippi State over Bowling Green, Nebraska over Purdue, LSU over Florida, Wisconsin over Northwestern, East Carolina over Tulane, South Carolina over Arkansas, Wyoming over New Mexico, and Arkansas State over Idaho.

Last week: 32-5, season: 230-37, percentage: .861.
