WASHINGTON STATE at OREGON
This just in: Product endorsement deal between WSU Football and Old Spice Red Zone deodorant now officially "on hold."
The best thing about the new Oregon Le Rooms de Locker: You can smoke pot in ‘em and—thanks to a state-of-the-art ventilation system—the odor and smoke—poof!—vanishes. Sure would've saved Herman the Ho a ton of legal grief.
ARIZONA STATE at OREGON STATE
Just one month ago, it was thought by many that this game would decide the Pac-10 championship. But not all is lost, my dam-building and pitchfork-wielding friends: Winner of this one is in the Las Vegas Bowl driver's seat! Boo-yah! PICK: SUN DEVILS
SOUTHERN CAL at CALIFORNIA
Late night Strawberry Canyon summer camp conversation between Papa Bear Tedford and Bollerwannabe QB Aaron Rodgers: "Coach Jeff, some of the other players have been razzing me, saying only little kids believe in bowl games .Mom says they're just giving me the business... bowl games are for real…aren't they, Coach Jeff?" "They are if you believe, Aaron, they are if you believe."
Four UscED Trojans were recently hospitalized with staph infections. Health officials praised Sewer Cal for acting quickly by sanitizing the locker room and promoting good hygiene among the Toejam players. "I told them peeing in the shower would one day come back to haunt us," an unidentified USC player said. PICK: TROJANS
STANFORD at WASHINGTON
Did I not, just last week, warn Lil' Buddy Teevens the danger of replacing senior QB Cool Hand Lewis with just-out-of-diapers Trent "Rugrat" Edwards? Twenty-five (25!?!) yards passing by your starting QB against BYU?!? Heed the Seer, Buddy. Heed the Seer.
Okay, I'll say it if no one else will: I miss the hell out of Rick Neuheisal. Laugh if you will but I feel like a ton of casinos just got lifted off me. PICK: HUSKIES
SAN DIEGO STATE at UCLA
I'll admit it: I'm hooked on ESPN's The Playmakers. Sure, it's loaded with bad acting, drug use, and unrealistic gridiron scenes, but those are all the same things I find endearing about UCLA football. PICK: BRUINS
TCU at ARIZONA
One of our cats, Trudi, disappeared a few weeks ago (Shhh, my daughter doesn't know yet). Yes, I know that has nothing to do with Wildcat football but you can only kick a corpse so long before it stops being funny. PICK: Horned Frogs
LAST WEEK: 5-4
