Stanford will have a Bear of a time

\n

This week\’s picks are as follows:

\n

CAL over STANFORD … in a season of crazy bounces and hard-luck injuries, the Bears win the one game that matters most to Old Blues. Stanford does have Luck on its side, but the Cardinal will need more than that to down the inspired Golden Bears.

\n

USC over OREGON STATE … the Trojans will not be in a bowl game for the first time in forever, but they\’ll do their level best to deny the suddenly struggling Beavers a bowl bid as well.

\n

BOISE STATE over FRESNO STATE … this used to be for all the WAC marbles. Now it\’s just

\n

another Bronco rout. But, with four unbeatens vying for two spots in the BCS championship game, it appears as if Boise will be the odd man out once again.

\n

NEVADA over NEW MEXICO STATE … the Wolfpack, which used to battle the Aggies in the old Far Western Conference, are now a national power at the highest level.

\n

NOTRE DAME over ARMY … believe it or not, the Irish may yet “earn” a bowl bid in an otherwise

\n

disappointing season for first-year head coach Brian Kelly.

\n

PENN STATE over INDIANA … after surrendering 83 points to Wisconsin last week, the Hoosiers are simply ready to surrender.

\n

UPSET OF THE WEEK: Michigan over Wisconsin … when the Wolverines play in the Big House, anything\’s possible. (Upset record: 1-10).

\n

ROUT OF THE WEEK: Tennessee over Vanderbilt … men playing with Commodores. (Rout record: 10-1).

\n

DON\’T BET ON IT, BUT: Utah over San Diego State … the Utes\’ once-promising season has crashed and burned. (Don\’t bet record: 7-4).

\n

FIVE EASY PICKS: This week\’s sure-to-deliver winners are Boise State (over Fresno State), Nevada (over New Mexico State), Brigham Young (over New Mexico), South Carolina (over Troy) and Texas Tech (over Weber State). (FEP record: 55-0).

\n

AGGIES over SACRAMENTO STATE … another winning season for UC Davis after beating the Hornets in a battle-to-the-death cage fight that both teams want desperately to win. Take the Ags by 4.

\n

OTHER GAMES: Oklahoma State over Kansas, Michigan State over Purdue, Florida over Appalachian State, Clemson over Wake Forest, Tulsa over UTEP, LSU over Mississippi, Ohio State over Iowa, Virginia Tech over Miami (Fla.), Northwestern over Illinois, Texas over Florida Atlantic, Navy over Arkansas State, Missouri over Iowa State, Arkansas over Mississippi State, Nebraska over Texas A&M, Oklahoma over Baylor, Florida State over Maryland, Brigham Young over New Mexico, and Hawaii over San Jose State.

\n

Last week: 21-9, season: 348-81, percentage: .811.
