This week’s picks are as follows:

STANFORD over OREGON STATE … the Cardinal has way too much defense for a talented Beaver offense that knows how to move the ball only through the air. Sean Mannion is one of the best pure quarterbacks in the country, but Stanford’s front line won’t give him time to throw.

OREGON over UCLA … the Bruins learned what the upper levels of the Pac-12 are like when they were smacked by Stanford last week. The Ducks are another level above that and will not lose a game this year.

OHIO STATE over PENN STATE … yep, the Buckeyes may very well complete their second straight 12-0 season and fail to make the big dance. That’s just how crazy this BCS system is. Can you say “dysfunctional”?

NOTRE DAME over AIR FORCE … men playing with Falcons.

ARIZONA over COLORADO … rumor has it the Buffs have petitioned for membership in the Big Sky Conference, but were rejected as too weak.

MISSOURI over SOUTH CAROLINA … so much for the Tigers not being able to compete in the SEC.

UPSET OF THE WEEK: Boise State over BYU … these are not your daddy’s Broncos, but they are steadily improving and ready for the stretch run. (Upset record: 2-6).

ROUT OF THE WEEK: Washington over Cal … two teams headed in the same direction: down. The Huskies hit a rough stretch in their schedule after winning their first four, but hope to rebound with a rout of the Bad News Bears. (Rout record: 8-0).

DON’T BET ON IT, BUT: USC over Utah … the Trojans switched coaches in mid-stream, but the lackluster results continue. When Chip Kelly realizes pro football isn’t his cup of tea, maybe he’ll take the USC job. (Don’t bet record: 5-3).

FIVE EASY PICKS: The pickings narrow each and every week of the season, but this week’s sure-fire winners are LSU (over Furman), Mississippi (over Idaho), Baylor (over Kansas), Florida State (over North Carolina State) and Alabama (over Tennessee). (FEP record: 40-0).

MONTANA STATE over AGGIES … the steadily improving Aggies face yet another Big Sky giant, this time in beautiful, bountiful Bozeman. A true litmus test of Aggie progress. Take the Bobcats by 10.

OTHER GAMES: Miami (Fla.) over Wake Forest, Oklahoma State over Iowa State, Louisville over South Florida, Central Florida over Connecticut, Nebraska over Minnesota, Rutgers over Houston, Ball State over Akron, Iowa over Northwestern, Texas A&M over Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech over Virginia, Ohio U. over Miami (Ohio), Clemson over Maryland, Oklahoma over Texas Tech, Virginia Tech over Duke, Northern Illinois over Eastern Michigan, Michigan State over Illinois, Buffalo over Kent State, Kansas State over West Virginia, Auburn over Florida Atlantic, Texas over TCU, Fresno State over San Diego State, San Jose State over Wyoming, and Nevada over Nevada-Las Vegas.

Last week: 29-11, season: 289-55, percentage: .840.
