OREGON at UTAH
How bad was it for Duck quarterbacks last weekend against the Cougs? So bad that by the fourth quarter every time they went back to pass WSU defenders signaled for a fair catch.
SOUTHERN CAL at ARIZONA STATE
Good news for Sun Devil Sports Information Department: No longer in press releases do they need to refer to QB Andrew Walter with that cumbersome "Heisman Trophy hopeful" tag,
Did you catch Pete "Sugarless" Carroll's kiss of death quote regarding the status of U$C QB Matt Leinart: "He gives us the best chance to win right now." Might as well just hand him the clipboard after that little confidence booster.
OREGON STATE at CALIFORNIA
Former ESPN commentator Big Fat Idiot says Golden Bear running back Adimchinobe Echemandu , after rushing for 147 yards, was given too much credit for Cal upset of Toejams last weekend, citing the liberal media's desire to see a player with an "obviously non-white name" succeed.
It's been well documented that QB Derwreck Anderson is like a Beavo in headlights when playing outside the comforts of home (13 picks in last 3 road games; 38 per cent away game completion rate). It's so bad, in fact that OSU away games are now referred to as "skid road" games.
PICK: GOLDEN BEARS
WASHINGTON at UCLA
The late great writer, George Plimpton, once lost 32 yards on a single series as QB of the Detroit Lions. The Bruins could sure use a guy like him behind center.
Dog fans will be relieved to learn that although many car windows were broken during the recent UW riot, Zach "Cruise" Tuiososopo has an airtight alibi.
ARIZONA at WASHINGTON STATE
The Cougars not only took the Ducks' fans out of the game early, they walked them to their cars and checked their oil.
So, Arizona president Pete Likens states in no uncertain terms that fallen saint Mike Price is NOT a candidate for the Wild Night, er-Wildcat, head-coaching job. Damn it, Mike, I warned you not to use Robert Witt as a reference.
LAST WEEK: 4-2
