Time to find out if ATQ is mostly wrong or mostly right!

Make your prediction for who will win this week’s PAC-12 contest and who will cover. At the end of the year we’ll tally the total and find out if we know what the Hell we’re talking about.

Last week the ATQ hivemind just barely missed going .500, hitting on 48 percent of our pick ems and 49 percent against the spread. Not bad... not good, but also not bad. DO BETTER!

As for this week’s RESIDENT GENIUS AWARD, the winner is:

riley111

Ducks 52 Buffs 10

Oregon finally plays like a playoff contender in the first half. 35-3 at the half.

Brown goes 14-18 250 2 TD’s and a stupid Int. We finally get to see Thompson in the second half and he gets ATQ’s panties wet.

Recruits go home happy and everyone gets laid.

Happy enough story?

UTAH @ STANFORD

TIME/CHANNEL: Friday, 7:30 PM, FS1

SEASON RECORD: UU (5-3, 4-1) / STAN (3-5, 2-4)

HISTORICAL RECORD: Though these two have a history that goes back to 1902 they have only played each other nine times. The Utes have won five of those, meaning Stanford can tie the series with a win tonight.

MM’s MUSINGS: Is there any life left in the Cardinal, or was their dying wish to ruin Oregon’s season with an embarrassing loss on the Farm? Utah looks much better than they did in Week 1, and are likely the PAC-12 South Champs without a complete meltdown, yet they still look vulnerable against physical teams. Can quarterback Tanner McKee force a win for Stanford, or will the Utes roll towards a huge matchup with the Ducks?

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: OCT 06 Cal at Arizona Photo by Jacob Snow/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

CALIFORNIA @ ARIZONA

TIME/CHANNEL: Saturday, 12:00 PM, PAC-12 NETWORK

SEASON RECORD: CAL (3-5, 2-3) / UA (0-8, 0-5)

HISTORICAL RECORD: Arizona currently holds an 18-14-2 record over Cal, and have won their previous five matchups against the Golden Bears.

MM’s MUSINGS: It’s been reported that the Golden Bears will be down multiple players due to COVID-19 protocol, which could result in the Wildcats winning their first game since 2019.

OREGON STATE @ COLORADO

TIME/CHANNEL: Saturday, 4:00 PM, PAC-12 NETWORK

SEASON RECORD: OSU (5-3, 3-2) / CU (2-6, 1-4)

HISTORICAL RECORD: These two first met on the gridiron in 1932 in Portland, Oregon. Since then, the Beavs are 6-5 against the Buffs, who can tie up the series with a win at home this Saturday.

MM’s MUSINGS: The Beavers are hoping to go to a bowl game for the first time in the Jonathan Smith Era and since 2013 when they beat Hawaii. The Buffs will need to put together four consecutive wins to make a bowl game this season, and that seems unlikely with one of the worst offenses in college football. Can the Beavs overcome the altitude?

No. 4 OREGON @ wASHINGTON

TIME/CHANNEL: Saturday, 4:30 PM, ABC

SEASON RECORD: UO (7-1, 4-1) / Uw (4-4, 3-2)

HISTORICAL RECORD: The Ducks began this hate-filled rivalry with a 43-to-0 win in 1900 in Eugene, Oregon. The Ducks have beaten the huskies 47 times in football and have fought to five ties, while washington has cheated their way to 60 victories over the Ducks.

MM’s MUSINGS: This would be one of the most embarrassing losses in the history of Oregon football, so for the love of Mariota, PLEASE BEAT THE HUSKIES THIS SATURDAY!

USC @ ARIZONA STATE

TIME/CHANNEL: Saturday, 7:30 PM, ESPN

SEASON RECORD: USC (4-4, 3-3) / ASU (5-3, 3-2)

HISTORICAL RECORD: The Trojans hold the 23-13 lead over the Sun Devils.

MM’s MUSINGS: Can a mistake-prone ASU squad fall ass-backwards into another win? Does USC even care anymore? I certainly don’t know, but I do know I have nothing else better to do on a Saturday night than watch this game.
