Now that Baylor and Stanford have put in their respective bids for national title consideration, this week’s picks are as follows:

USC over CAL … would love to see the Bears finally put an entire game together, but the steadily improving Trojans aren’t about to let that happen.

ALABAMA over LSU … as the nation’s handful of unbeaten teams try to score style points by running up big numbers, the Tide sits comfortably at No. 1, unthreatened and unchallenged. It will remain so for yet another week.

UCLA over ARIZONA … two teams trying to prove they belong in the Pac-12’s upper tier.

ARIZONA STATE over UTAH … if they could start the season over in their current form, the Sun Devils might just be unbeaten. This team is loaded.

EASTERN WASHINGTON over MONTANA STATE … a battle for all the marbles in the Big Sky Conference. Vernon Adams rules the day.

FRESNO STATE over WYOMING … the Bulldogs continue to struggle, but they continue to win. If they can survive Laramie in November, they can survive anything.

WISCONSIN over BYU … one of the weekend’s more intriguing matchups.

UPSET OF THE WEEK: Vanderbilt over Florida … did anyone say the Gators are struggling? (Upset record: 3-7).

ROUT OF THE WEEK: Washington over Colorado … the Buffs are creating new ways to lose, week after week after week. (Rout record: 10-0).

DON’T BET ON IT, BUT: Notre Dame over Pittsburgh … the Irish had to struggle to overcome a so-so Navy team last week. They could be in deep trouble at Pitt. (Don’t bet record: 7-3).

FIVE EASY PICKS: There are no easy picks in November, but this week’s guaranteed winners are Georgia (over Appalachian State), Florida State (over Wake Forest), Oklahoma State (over Kansas), Boston College (over New Mexico State) and Missouri (over Kentucky). (FEP record: 50-0).

AGGIES over BYE … a much-needed week off as our local heroes gear up for the stretch run. Take the Ags by 7.

OTHER GAMES: Louisville over Connecticut, Auburn over Tennessee, TCU over Iowa State, Penn State over Minnesota, Marshall over UAB, Cincinnati over SMU, Iowa over Purdue, Mississippi over Arkansas, North Carolina over Virginia, Texas A&M over Mississippi State, North Texas over UTEP, East Carolina over Tulsa, Middle Tennessee over Florida International, Fordham over Bucknell, North Dakota State over Illinois State, Eastern Illinois over Murray State, Sam Houston State over Nicholls State,, Memphis over Tennessee-Martin, Miami (Fla.) over Virginia Tech, Texas over West Virginia, Louisiana Tech over Southern Mississippi, San Jose State over San Diego State, and Utah State over UNLV.

Last week: 34-3, season: 355-64, percentage: .847.
