    October 21, 2015

    Pac-12 football picks and spreads for Week 8 of the 2015 college football season. This week’s slate includes five games, highlighted by a battle in Los Angeles between the undefeated Utah Utes and reeling USC Trojans. The season has been a disaster so far for USC, with ugly losses and the dismissal of coach Steve Sarkisian. Will the Utes get another big win on their way to a possible College Football Playoff spot, or can the Trojans right the ship a bit and play up to their potential? Scroll down for this week’s Pac-12 picks.


    UCLA vs. California


    Date
    : Thursday, October 22

    Kickoff
    : 9:00 p.m. ET

    Venue
    : Rose Bowl

    The Bruins are not the team everyone thought they would be coming into the season, while the Bears have been one of the nation’s nice surprises. UCLA’s defense has allowed an average of 43 points the last three games, and will face a Cal offense led by QB Jared Goff. The Bruins still have the talent, though, and will pick up a big win at home behind a beautiful game by QB Josh Rosen.


    Pick: UCLA


    Spread: UCLA -3.5

    Washington State vs. Arizona


    Date
    : Saturday, October 24

    Kickoff
    : 4:00 p.m. ET

    Venue
    : Arizona Stadium

    A matchup of explosive offenses that have found their rhythm takes place in Tucson as the Cougars meet the Wildcats. Wazzu QB Luke Falk has thrown 11 touchdown passes in the last two games, and the Wildcats are averaging 41 points per game over the last two games. It’ll be a barn burner, with Arizona scoring last for the win.


    Pick: Arizona


    Spread: Arizona -7

    USC vs. Utah


    Date: Saturday, October 24

    Kickoff
    : 7:300 p.m. ET

    Venue
    : Los Angeles Memorial Stadium

    If everything has been going right so far this season for Utah, the exact opposite can be said for USC. However the Trojans still have more speed and talent than the Utes, and have an advantage behind center with QB Cody Kessler. All of that still won’t be enough, though. Utah continues to roll with a close victory. 


    Pick: Utah


    Spread: USC -3

    Colorado vs. Oregon State


    Date
    : Saturday, October 24

    Kickoff
    : 10:30 p.m. ET

    Venue
    : Reser Stadium

    Nothing has been going right for Oregon State so far, with the offense, defense and special teams all struggling. Enter a Colorado team that has been just as bad. This one has desperation written all over it. The Beavers defense will be the difference.


    Pick: Oregon State


    Spread: Oregon State -2.5

    Stanford vs. Washington


    Date
    : Saturday, October 24

    Kickoff
    : 10:30 p.m. ET

    Venue
    : Stanford Stadium

    Since its opening season loss at Northwestern, the Stanford offense has been flying high, averaging 45 points per game during a five-game winning streak. The Huskies defense is stout, giving up only 17 points per game, but it won’t be stout enough against the Cardinal attack. Stanford wins easily and further impresses the nation. 


    Pick: Stanford


    Spread: No line
