Upset special! Two underdogs prevailed in the conference’s 5 games this week, and two others displayed better-than-expected performances. Arizona looks more vulnerable than ever, Oregon State is getting back on track, and Oregon beat Washington State by fewer points than the margin by which the Ducks took down Stanford. That was… surprising. Cal also looks to be heading back in the right direction, although UCLA remains a wildly inconsistent squad.

Here are your PAC-10 scores, complete with our predictions from both earlier in the week and the preseason. Our record, as noted below, is based upon picks we made in the weeks before the respective games, and not upon our preseason predictions.

Winner Loser Prediction Preseason Prediction
Stanford 37 USC 35 Stanford, 52-34 Stanford
Oregon State 29 Arizona 27 Arizona Oregon State
Arizona State 24 Washington 14 Arizona State Arizona State
California 35 UCLA 7 California California
Oregon 43 Washington State 23 Oregon Oregon
Our Record This Week: 4-1

Our Record This Season: 33-10 (.767)
