Prehm's Pac-12 Picks: Week 11

Last week I had another stellar run going 6-0, I know I know you really want to hear me brag. This week should be a doozy for the Pac-12 with a couple important games on a national level.

Josh Huff and the Oregon Ducks look to win their 10th game for the 4th straight season.

Oregon State and Stanford duke it out for the right to play Oregon for the right to rep the Pac-12 North. Arizona State is trying to get back into the Pac-12 South discussion while USC is hoping to stay alive. UCLA will try to win in a snowy Pullman, WA against a Washington State team that's wounded.

This season I'm up to 52-18 on the year. On to the picks....

Saturday's Games

Colorado at Arizona

Colorado is just looking to get out of this season alive and Arizona is hoping they can once again get back into the Pac-12 South division race. Colorado will battle for maybe a quarter before giving up a ton of yards.

Ka'Deem Carey will go wild against a terrible Colorado defense and pick up 200 yards of offense and three touchdowns.

Arizona 38 Colorado 10

No. 12 Oregon State at No. 15 Stanford

This is the game of the week for the Pac-12 and maybe a top-5 game in the country. Oregon State is looking to get a huge victory to launch them back into the Top-10 and back into the discussion for a BCS at-large pick. Stanford is looking to do the same. Can Oregon State run on Stanford? Can Stanford pass on Oregon State?

I think the #BeaverJuice will be served Saturday night on the farm and we get treated with an entertaining game that goes back and forth in the second half before Cody Vaz wins it for OSU.

OSU 38 Stanford 34

Arizona State at No. 22 USC

USC is reeling right now and looking to get back into the winning side of the box score. A third straight loss might be the final nail in the coffin for Monte Kiffin, if it hasn't be hammered already. Lane Kiffin is hoping that he can right the ship and get back into the Pac-12 South race and salvage a terrible year. ASU is wanting to show the nation they are a legit program that can beat a better team instead of eating up on the bad ones.

Marqise Lee is too much for an ASU defense that will struggle to stay in front of him. Lee goes big and USC rolls.

USC 42 ASU 28

No. 19 UCLA at Washington State

The UCLA Bruins are in a terrific spot right now going into their final push for a Pac-12 Championship game. Rest up against Washington State before facing USC and Stanford. Washington State is a train wreck and just waiting for the season to be over.

UCLA rolls and Johnathan Franklin has a huge game on the ground as the weather limits the passing game.


Utah at Washington

Washington is hoping to get bowl eligible with a sixth win coming against Utah. Utah is also fighting for a bowl but needs two more wins and having Colorado left on the schedule is a positive sign. I think this game is ugly and and back and forth early but eventually Washington pulls away.

Keith Price finally has a big game throwing the ball.

Washington 27 Utah 20

No. 2 Oregon at Cal

Cal is hit hard this season with injuries. Oregon is starting to get hit hard with injuries. Cal's offense is terrible. Oregon's offense is unstoppable. This game gets ugly early and the only question going in will be if Kenjon Barner gets enough carries to stay in the race of the Heisman.

Kenjon Barner goes off early in the first half to be rested in the second half. De'Anthony Thomas also scores a touchdown and the Ducks pour it on big.

Oregon 57 Cal 13
