1-2 last week. 21-14 this year.
#13 Stanford 24 @ #2 Oregon 37
The way Oregon is playing this year, I don't see anyone outside of the SEC being able to beat them. The offense is outstanding as always and Stanford doesn't have the offense to keep up.
#18 USC 34 @ #17 UCLA 37
At this point, I have really lost faith in the Trojans after picking them to win the championship at the start of the season. I think this will be a high scorer and UCLA will use the home field advantage to get back to the Pac 12 title game.
#23 Texas Tech 24 @ #24 Oklahoma State 34
Texas Tech has not played well the last few weeks and I think that will continue with a loss in Stillwater.
Upset: With many top 10 teams playing a week one slate this week, finding an upset is difficult. Utah State 42 @ #20 Louisiana Tech 41. The Aggies are coming off a bye and Louisiana Tech couldn't stop Texas State last week.
Purdue 31 @ Illinois 20
Purdue, besides the 3 fumbles, played well at Iowa City last week and right now I would only pick Illinois over Colorado in terms of big conference teams. If Nord is unable to call plays for Purdue the offense should play well, just like last week, but if Nord coaches this could become a loss.
