COLORADO @ WASHINGTON

TIME/CHANNEL: 12:30 PM FOX

RECORDS: No. 15 Washington (5-2, 3-1) - Colorado (5-1, 2-1)

LAST WEEK: Both of these teams are coming off crucial losses and are looking to rebound. Colorado went from undefeated to unimpressive in their 31-20 loss to USC. Also, their star player Laviska Shenault Jr. is questionable for this Saturday. And we all know how Washington’s last game went. A loss in Seattle would most likely eliminate either team from the PAC-12 championship game. Is Washington still licking their wounds from Oregon’s glorious victory? Can Colorado defeat the Huskies for the first time since 1996?

(Editor’s pick: Washington 34 - Colorado 10)

CALIFORNIA @ OREGON STATE

TIME/CHANNEL: 1 PM PAC-12 NETWORK

RECORDS: California (3-3, 0-3) - Oregon State (1-5, 0-3)

LAST WEEK: Vegas must really hate the Beavers. The Golden Bears have the unfortunate honor of giving UCLA their first win of the season. After starting the season with three straight wins, California is now riding a three-game losing streak. Meanwhile, Oregon State has established an offense, now it’s time to focus on the other two phases of the game. Can the Golden Bears win their first conference game of the season? Can the Beavers double last season’s win total?

OREGON @ WASHINGTON STATE

NCAA Football: Washington State at Oregon Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

TIME/CHANNEL: 4:30 PM FOX

RECORDS: No. 12 Oregon (5-1, 2-1) - No. 25 Washington State (5-1, 2-1)

LAST WEEK: Much of the storyline surrounding this game is the potential of a trap game for Oregon; they’re coming off an incredibly emotional win and are being called the front runner for the conference. But in reality, Washington State has quietly put together one of their best teams in the Leach era, and GameDay will bring a Hellish atmosphere to Pullman. Do the Cougs have what it takes to succeed in the national spotlight? Can the Ducks survive a drunker than normal Martin Stadium?

USC @ UTAH

NCAA Football: Utah at Southern California Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

TIME/CHANNEL: 5 PM PAC-12 NETWORK

RECORDS: USC (4-2, 3-1) - Utah (4-2, 2-2)

LAST WEEK: The Trojans have slain the mighty Buffaloes, setting up a potential conference championship run, but the Utah Utes are surging at the perfect time. All Utah needed was some offensive efficiency, and Tyler Huntley has found his stride both in the air and on the ground. USC, on the other had, has looked unorganized and undisciplined even in their wins. Will Utah finally win the PAC-12 South? Or will USC once again fall ass-backwards into a conference championship game?

ARIZONA @ UCLA

NCAA Football: UCLA at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

TIME/CHANNEL: 7:30 PM ESPN 2

RECORDS: UCLA (1-5, 1-2) - Arizona (3-4, 2-2)

LAST WEEK: The Bruins won a game! Not only that, but their new rushing attack lead by Joshua Kelley leads one to believe that it’ll happen again! Meanwhile, the Wildcats are coming off a brutal 42-10 loss to the Utes, and even their recent win against Cal looked like a loss in many ways. Khalil Tate was sidelined for the large majority of the game last week, does this give the Bruins the edge they need? Is Chip Kelly ready to make a historic comeback march to 6-0 after starting 0-6?
