This week’s picks are as follows:

STANFORD over UCLA … the Mighty Cardinal does not lose two games in a row. After getting smacked by Utah, there will be no national championship banner in Palo Alto, but a Pac-12 title is still possible if Oregon drops football.

OREGON STATE over CAL … fans aren’t exactly buzzing about this one in Berkeley. One online site is offering decent tickets to the game at a non-scalper-like price of $2. Seriously.

WASHINGTON over ARIZONA STATE … the Huskies put their best effort on display last week at home against Oregon and were still found lacking by three touchdowns. But Washington and Arizona State can dream of the Rose Bowl when Oregon gets invited to the national championship game.

FLORIDA STATE over CLEMSON … the best game on TV Saturday.

LSU over OLE MISS … don’t count out the Bayou Bengals just yet.

UPSET OF THE WEEK: USC over Notre Dame … this used to be for the national championship. Now it’s just the Also-Ran Bowl. In a battle of weak offenses against strong defenses, the first team to score wins. (Upset record: 2-5).

ROUT(E) OF THE WEEK: Interstate 5 to Eugene, where Oregon will fold, spindle and mutilate the hapless Cougs of Washington State. When one conference team is favored by 40 points over another conference team, you know that parity no longer exists. Wazzu saw its chances for a bowl bid fly out the Martin Stadium exits in last week’s collapse against Oregon State. (Rout record: 7-0).

DON’T BET ON IT, BUT: Utah over Arizona … the Utes are beginning to think they’re unbeatable after last week’s shocker over Stanford. (Don’t bet record: 5-2).

FIVE EASY PICKS: Easy picks get harder to come by this time of year, but sure to pass the test this week are Alabama (over Arkansas), Oklahoma (over Kansas), Fresno State (over UNLV), Baylor (over Iowa State) and Montana State (over Weber State). (FEP record: 35-0).

AGGIES over NORTHERN COLORADO … the Ags found out in a hurry last week against Montana that they’re not in the top tier of the Big Sky Conference. However, they’re also not in the bottom tier, occupied by the likes of Idaho State, Weber State and the woeful Bears that inhabit Greeley. If Northern Colorado had an intrasquad game, both sides would lose. Take the Ags by 21.

OTHER GAMES: Cincinnati over Connecticut, Louisville over Central Florida, South Carolina over Tennessee, Georgia over Vanderbilt, Texas Tech over West Virginia, Oklahoma State over TCU, Northwestern over Minnesota, Michigan State over Purdue, East Carolina over Southern Mississippi, Florida over Missouri, Ohio U. over Eastern Michigan, Ball State over Western Michigan, Northern Illinois over Central Michigan, Ohio State over Iowa, Texas A&M over Auburn, Michigan over Indiana, BYU over Houston, Buffalo over Massachusetts, LSU over Mississippi, Pittsburgh over Old Dominion, Texas State over Georgia State, Wisconsin over Illinois, Rice over New Mexico State, North Dakota State over Southern Illinois, Eastern Washington over Southern Utah, and Boise State over Nevada.

Last week: 30-7, season: 260-44, percentage: .855.
