Ohio State (+2-1/2) over Penn State Penn State doesn’t impress me as a top-5 team, and the return to health of Beanie Wells and the amazing, week-by-week development of Terrelle Pryor since playing USC has made Ohio State once again an elite team, with a lot to prove and a massive job to jump back into the BCS jumble. OSU will win this one.
|UCLA (+17) over California Cal is coming off a loss to Arizona and now appears to have a full-blown quarterback controversy. This is a talented team, but until Tedford installs Kevin Riley as the QB, they will underachieve. UCLA’s noticeable improvement has been sporadic, with one step back for every two steps forward, compounded now by several injuries on defense, especially to the D-line. Still, UCLA should keep the game close, and cover.
Arizona (+16) over USC Another game that seems like it could be close, though the brain surgeons have a knack for running away with these games. Nevertheless, this looks to me like it could be another Oregon State-type game, close to the end, with either team having a shot. Take the points. Also remember that Arizona, tied for the Pac-10 lead, is still the only conference member never to play in the Rose Bowl game, and if they are to have a chance to change that, this is the game they need.
