How 'bout Washington State?

Fabulous Orac.

And I agree - UW/Oregon is the hottest rivalry on the west coast.

Don't ask me why, but I pick the Huskies to win this one.

Very well-written blog Orac.
Or, to put the compound modifier after the noun, your blog is very [i]well written[/i].

Haha.
My point is that I'm a stickler for proper grammar (my own, not other people's) and after reading your post I realized it was grammatically near perfect.
After rereading it I counted only 1 missing comma!

Some of these games ended not long after you posted this.
How on earth did you manage such a comprehensive evaluation of all these games in such a short period of time without any dumb grammar mistakes?

Lmao!
Good stuff.

Looks like I needn't watch the Maaco Bowl tomorrow - because, apparently, nobody's playing in it!

I think 7-3 SDSU is a little underrated.
They lost at 8-2 Missouri by 3, at BYU by 3, and at TCU by 5.
That's pretty impressive, even more so for a Mountain West Team.

Can Utah possibly have 3 'dud' games in a row??

Hopefully they'll put up a fight. Whoever wins, it should be a good game.

Neb at TAMU should be fun. A&M is much improved under Tannehill and RB Cyrus Gray has stepped it up as well. Gray now has 4 consecutive 100 yd games.

Nebraska has got to be pulling their hair out now - looking back to that TX loss. If not for that 1 game they'd be in the thick of NC race. As it stands now, their best bet may be playing an unranked Big East team in the Fiesta. So we'll see how they handle the pressure.

A few weeks ago I would have picked Nebraska easily. Now I'm not so sure. The oddsmakers may agree - they have Neb by 3.

Agree that LSU vs Ole Miss should be very interesting. Ole Miss has a lot to play for and LSU may not be taking this game completely seriously. Plus it's a 2:30 pm kick-off. So Tiger fans will not be as.... [i]toasty[/i] as usual - most will likely still be hung over!
(At LSU, Miles is something like 30-2 in home [i]night[/i] games, and 6-5 in home [i]day[/i] games - and would be 5-6 if Tennessee could count!)
Last week Miles started buttering the voters up (in the event of an Auburn loss, I'm assuming) by saying that the top SEC team should automatically be in the title game. I guess he figured it worked in 2007, so why not try it again. Of course they have to beat Ole Miss 1st.

The line on this is LSU by 16, but I think it will be closer than that.

Will def be watching the Huskies vs the Bruins tonight. And I too give UW a good chance of winning at home. I believe UW will lose at Cal next week however, and finish 5-7 on the year... If UCLA can pull this 1 out they greatly improve their bowl chances with a winnable game at ASU next Fri.

Stanford at Cal should be 1 of the top games this wkend. Stanford is arguably the best 1 loss team, and Cal is #10 in total defense (301 yds/gm) is arguably a top 10 team [i]at home[/i]. This 1 should go down to the wire with Luck being the difference maker... Should be interesting to see if any Cal linemen suddenly develop 'cramps' and fall to the ground after looking over to the sideline!... I think Cal finishes 6-6 and gets a bowl.

OSU has had USC's # as of late. But this is a different coach and as you said, USC's offense is looking like the USC offenses of old (averaging 35 pts/gm and have scored 31 or more in all 3 of their losses). And Kiffin is starting to prove himself as a quality coach... Should be USC fairly easily at Reser Stadium. ... Unfortunately for the Beavs, I think they finish 4-8 (and after such a promising first 5 games) ... Just imagine if they had scheduled 2 cupcakes instead of TCU and Boise - they'd be bowling.

Great work OM.
Well written!

Good call on the Stanford/ASU game OM.

You called it by 4, and they won by 4!
Posted Friday November 12, 2010, About: Pac-10 and the Next Best 3, Week 11
Great Blog OM.
And your welcome!

I agree with pretty much all your picks.
However, I think that if Stanford plays like they have been the last 2 weeks they will beat ASU fairly easily.

And I agree that USC/Arizona will probably be 1 of the best games this weekend.
