It’s the final week of the regular season in College Football. The Pac-12 is wrapping up a sensational season on the gridiron with a five pack of conference games. The USC Trojans are off, and the Stanford Cardinals take on Notre Dame in non conference action. Here are the five games for Week 13:
Oregon State Beavers +13.5 at Oregon Ducks; 62.5
A pair of Top 20 teams getting together. Oregon needs the win to assure their spot in the Pac-12 title against Washington. That would be an opportunity for Dan Lanning’s Ducks to get revenge for their lone loss of the season. The Beavers are not going to go down easy in Eugene. In fact, a season ago, the Beavers topped the Ducks. Do not be surprised if this comes down to a final possession late in the game. This is a Friday game, so it should get good viewership for Black Friday. Taking the OVER and betting the Beavers is the move here. Look for a 38-35 type game for the Ducks.
Colorado Buffaloes +22 at Utah Utes; 52.5
Coach Prime and the Buffaloes are not going to be bowling this season. While the season has been an improvement, it’s also been a bit of a disappointment. Colorado will look to finish strong as they take on the Utes here. Utah is really good on the defensive side, and have shown ups and downs with their offensive play. Look for a fun game here between these two teams, with, when push comes to shove, the Buffaloes covering. Give Coach Prime more praise, he has his guys ready to go even in their final game here. Take the Colorado Buffaloes to keep this game within three touchdowns on Saturday.
Arizona Wildcats -10.5 at Arizona State Sun Devils; 50.5
The big rivalry here in the state of Arizona. The Wildcats have been red hot. In fact, Arizona still has an outside chance of getting to the Pac-12 title game with a win. The WIldcats are coming off a blowout win at home over Utah, which was their fifth straight. But, if one team is going to stand in their path, it will be their rivals from Arizona State. Nothing else to play for, outside of pride and a chance at a rivalry win here. The Sun Devils are looking to bounce back from their blowout loss at home to Oregon. Look for a low scoring, competitive game, but in the end, the Wildcats win this one by two touchdowns. Take Arizona on the road. 28-14 Wildcats over Sun Devils.
Washington State Cougars +16.5 at Washington Huskies; 68.5
Much like Oregon / Oregon State, and Arizona / Arizona State – we get Washington State and Washington. There is a ton on the line for the Cougars. They must win this game to become bowl eligible. The Cougars also have a chance to spoil the party of their state rivals. Michael Penix Jr and his Huskies need this one, and a Pac-12 title game win to have a chance at the College Football Playoff. Any loss, and they are seemingly going to be eliminated from that. Look for the Huskies to be ready and prepared to compete hard. Washington State does not have enough to play a full game with the Huskies. Washington wins by 3+ touchdowns and finishes the regular season a perfect 12-0.
California Golden Bears +9.5 at UCLA Bruins; 52.5
It’s the Golden Bears and the Bruins. California needs a win here to become bowl eligible. The Bruins struggled for a good portion of the second half of the season, but the 38-20 win over USC was refreshing for them. Look for the Bruins to come into this game pretty flat, as their big win is over, and now the season is about to be complete. The California Golden Bears get the job done and not only cover in this game, but pull a big moneyline upset. Take the Bears on the road!
