Stanford should watch out for USC

This weekÕs picks are as follows:

CAL over UCLA … the Bruins found themselves two weeks ago at Texas. The Bears are still looking.

ARIZONA over OREGON STATE … the Wildcats will be thinking Rose Bowl until someone proves otherwise.

NOTRE DAME over PITTSBURGH … if the Irish are to go bowling, they canÕt stumble in winnable games.

ALABAMA over SOUTH CAROLINA … itÕs hard to repeat as national champion in college football, but the Tide just might pull it off against a monster schedule.

WASHINGTON over ARIZONA STATE … the Huskies are a long, long way from their glory days, but they are gradually working their way back. The hard luck Sun Devils will figure out a way to lose yet again.

MICHIGAN over MICHIGAN STATE … quick, whenÕs the last time Michigan started 5-0 and wasnÕt ranked in the Top 10? This is a good, not great, Wolverine team, which will win just enough to save Rich RodÕs job.

MIAMI (FLA.) over FLORIDA STATE … remember when this was the biggest game in the country?

BRIGHAM YOUNG over SAN DIEGO STATE … the worst BYU team in recent history finally puts it all

together.

UPSET OF THE WEEK: USC over Stanford … no, this is not a misprint. The Cardinal is the clear favorite in this one despite having run flat out of Luck last weekend in Eugene. The winner of this one gets back into the Pac-10 race. The loser may have trouble recovering. (Upset record: 1-4).

ROUT OF THE WEEK: West Virginia over UNLV … mountain men playing with boys. (Rout record: 5-0).

DONÕT BET ON IT, BUT: Penn State over Illinois … Joe PaÕs team has completely forgotten that you need to score points to win football games. (DonÕt bet record: 4-1).

FIVE EASY PICKS: You can collect for sure on Oregon (over Washington State), TCU (over Wyoming), Ohio State (over Indiana), Boise State (over Toledo) and Nevada (over San Jose State). (FEP record: 25-0).

AGGIES over SOUTH DAKOTA … in every season comes a Òturning pointÓ game that can send a team soaring upward or spiraling downward. That game came last week for UC Davis in a dramatic, come-from-behind win over San Jose State. Make no mistake, this is a very good South Dakota team. But the Aggies are just a little bit better. Take the Ags by 1.

OTHER GAMES: Oklahoma State over Louisiana-Lafayette, Wisconsin over Minnesota, South Florida over Syracuse, North Carolina State over Boston College, Virginia Tech over Central Michigan, Air Force over Colorado State, Louisville over Memphis, Arkansas over Texas A&M, Utah over Iowa State, Missouri over Colorado, Vanderbilt over Eastern Michigan, Cincinnati over Miami (Ohio), Auburn over Kentucky, Florida over LSU, Northwestern over Purdue, Southern Mississippi over East Carolina, Mississippi State over Houston, SMU over Tulsa, UTEP over Rice, and Fresno State over Hawaii.

Last week: 28-5, season: 200-22, percentage: .901.
