It’s the final couple weeks in the College Football season, and the tension is high in the Pac-12 conference. The Washington Huskies lead the charge with just a lone loss, while Oregon is the only team remaining with just a single loss. A ton on the line the last couple weeks of Pac-12 Football. Let’s take a look at the big games from the conference.
Arizona Wildcats -10.5 at Colorado Buffaloes
The Arizona Wildcats are on the the biggest surprise Arizona sports teams this year. They have 6 wins, and have a couple more chances for more wins. The Wildcats are doing so with great ball control and fantastic defense. They get the Buffaloes, who have not won a game since the first Saturday in October. Things went south for Colorado in Pac-12 play, with the Sun Devils as their lone win this season. Arizona seems to be in control right now, and this is a great opportunity to stay in the mix with two losses in league play. The Wildcats win this one by two touchdowns over the Buffaloes.
Utah Utes +9.5 at Washington Huskies
A great defensive team against an elite offensive team. The Huskies are in the middle of a brutal stretch of games, but Coach DeBoer’s team seems equipped to handle it. Michael Penix Jr is right on the line for the lead in the Heisman candidate. A big game against a defense like Utah would certainly help his cause. Utah is coming off a really impressive win, and going on the road here would be quite a win for Coach Whittingham and his squad. If the Huskies want to stay in the discussion for the College Football Playoff, this is a game they have to win at home. The Huskies win, but Utah makes them sweat, and covers the +9.5.
Washington State Cougars +1 at California Bears!
Two teams with some struggles as of late. The Cougars started the season with four straight wins, and have now lost five in a row. Washington State will look to get back on track at the Bears, who have dropped four straight games. California overall, will need to run the table to become bowl eligible. This could be a pretty ugly game, but will be competitive. Look for the Bears to get back on track at home here. The Cougars’ sloppiness has caught up to them, and it’s hard to get back on track. Take California at home
Stanford Cardinals +21 at Oregon State Beavers
The Beavers do not want to look ahead, but they have Washington and Oregon to finish the season. This is a game they need to get right, get healthy and get ready for their final two games. Oregon State is 7-2 on the season, while Stanford is 3-6. It’s been an up and down season for the Cardinals this season, but coming off a thrilling 10-7 win at Washington State has them coming in with some momentum. Look for Stanford to keep this game within striking distance, but the Beavers win. Take Stanford and the points.
Arizona State Sun Devils +17 at UCLA Bruins
The Sun Devils won a game, and then lost all their momentum with a 52 point blowout loss at Utah. Now, they go to UCLA, who is also coming off a loss. The Bruins go through stages where they struggle to score. That needs to be fixed against an Arizona State team that will be pesky if you let them stick around. Last week looked like the end of caring for the Sun Devils. Take UCLA to win this game by three scores at home.
USC Trojans +15 at Oregon Ducks
All Ducks, all the time. Oregon has one goal, and that is to get in the Pac-12 title game and get some revenge on the Washington Huskies. If Oregon can do that, they have a chance at the College Football playoff. USC looks like a train wreck right now. Is Caleb Williams even wanting to be at this game? Oregon wins, and Oregon wins big. Take the Ducks.
There is a look at the Pac-12 games for Week 11 of the College Football season. Good luck if you are betting the games, and enjoy the action. Hopefully we get some great action on the field and some interesting results!
