PAC-12 PICK'EM for Saturday, 11/19/2011

Is it me or is time just whizzing by lately? Another week, another round of picks, another undefeated champion (me).  Going into turkey week, I'm predicting a couple of upsets. USC has a daunting opponent in the Oregon Ducks, but I think there's going to be a surprising outcome for non-Trojans. I also think OSU at Corvallis will get a burst of fight again. Anyway, here are my picks:

USC over Oregon
UCLA over Colorado

Oregon State over Washington

Utah over Washington State

Stanford over Cal

ASU over Arizona

Please let me know your predictions in the Comments section.

Good luck to all and remember, Fight On!

PAC-12 PICK'EM for Saturday, 11/12/11

Picks for this week:

Arizona over Colorado (let's face it, whatever the outcome, it will be utterly demoralizing for one of these teams with disappointing seasons)

USC over Washington (Kiffin and Sarkisian used to coach side by side at SC, so winning this match-up must be sweeter than most for these guys)

OSU over Cal (Cal just won big last week, but has been inconsistent...and OSU has a winning streak against Cal)

Utah over UCLA (UCLA has done really well lately, tied for first in the South division, but because they are also an inconsistent team and have a tendency to sometimes shoot themselves in the foot against weaker opponents for some reason, I think the Utes will win)

Stanford over Oregon (I think this is Stanford's year, not Oregon's, plus it's at Stanford, hopefully it will be a good game though)

ASU over WSU (I think the Sun Devils will win and wind up tied with SC for first in South division, but since they beat SC, they will win the division overall, Stanford will win the North, and then take the whole PAC-12 championship. You heard it here first, folks...okay, maybe not)

My risk-taking picks last week caused me to stumble...but not fall, as the reigning champ. I know, I know, it takes two to Tango, and more than one person to compete...theoretically. But, honestly, I'm enjoying myself, so why complain, right? If any of you brave football fans out there care to make this really interesting, please post your predictions for today's games in the Comments section which I've actually blocked to insure I win (joking, but seriously thinking about if anyone challenges my reign as champ).

Good luck to all, and remember to Fight On!

PAC-12 PICK'EM for 11/5/2011

Fellow football lovers! Time to pick (actually, running late since Stanford v OSU game is in progress). But not to worry, since it won't affect my reign as champion, of that I'm pretty sure. Given my secure tenure as champ, I've decided to take more risks this week. Okay, now for picks:

OSU over Stanford (The score is currently Stanford 14, OSU 7. OSU looks perky, and their home games have a lot of energy from their fervent fans. I'd love to see Stanford go down, after the close game with SC. So I'm going out on a limb and predicting an upset here).

Arizona over Utah (I just think the wildcats will do it again at home, like their last home game)

Oregon over  Washington (Washington's a great team, it's at Seattle, but Oregon's on a mission, and possibly involved in a conspiracy theory with OSU to have an Oregon team win the PAC-12 championship [see above]).

UCLA over ASU (Like I've said in other posts, UCLA can pull out surprises, especially Prince, so let's see if they can do two in a row).

Cal over Washington (Cal needs a win)

If you want to post your predictions, have at it in the Comments section.
Good Luck! And Fight On!

Whoops! Where is the time going (it's November, holiday season, the clock ticks in doubletime). Will add Saturday's games soon.

But no surprise, I pick USC over Colorado.

Later. Fight On!
