    Pick: Utah 37, Arizona 27
    Line: Utah -6, o/u: 63

    In for an injured Anu Solomon, who left the game after taking a shot to the helmet, Jerrard Randall completed just one pass to his own team, and he made it count with a 25-yard scoring throw to Nate Phillips in the second overtime for a seven point lead. Utah couldn’t answer with the offense missing on a fourth down throw. Utah overcame a 20-10 deficit with two Travis Wilson touchdown passes including a 59-yard play to Harrison Handley, but Arizona came back with Solomon running for a six-yard score to tie it up with just over four minutes to play – neither team did anything until overtime. The two teams traded field goals in the first overtime, and it took just the one play for Arizona to all but knock out the Pac-12’s College Football Playoff hopes in the second overtime. The two teams combined for 18 penalties.

Stanford got back in it on a three-yard Greg Taboada touchdown catch to pull within five, but Oregon came up with a 31-yard Aidan Schneider field goal with just over five minutes to play for an eight-point lead. Stanford stalled, but got one more shot with Kevin Hogan finding Taboada for a four-yard touchdown pass with ten seconds to play.
