    Hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving …

    Last week: 2-4
    Season: 38-34-3
    Five-star special: 7-5

    All picks against the spread.
    Lines taken from vegasinsider.com

    WASHINGTON STATE (plus-6) at WASHINGTON (Friday): Luke Falk’s status makes the situation murkier than it would otherwise be. (And the Apple Cup is usually somewhat murky.) I like the desperate team at home with a healthy quarterback. Pick: Washington.

    OREGON STATE (plus-30) at OREGON (Friday): What about the second half? Pick: Oregon.


    NOTRE DAME (plus-3.5) at STANFORD: (Note: The Irish opened as a 2-pt favorite; due to the huge swing, I’ll use the updated line.) Had presumed for weeks that this would be a toss up but am no longer convinced. Feels like the injury-ravaged Irish are finally wearing down. Home team by 7-10-13 points. Pick: Stanford.

    ARIZONA STATE (plus-3) at CAL: View depends on whether you think ASU is an upper-echelon team (i.e., the teams Cal cannot beat). I don’t. Bears win in Goff’s final home game, which could also be Sonny Dykes’ final home game. Pick: Cal.

    UCLA (plus-3.5) at USC: Bruins beat the team that Jim Mora has figured out (3-0 vs. Trojans) to earn a date with the team Jim Mora hasn’t figured out (0-5 vs. Stanford). Pick: UCLA.

    COLORADO (plus-15.5) at UTAH: Not sure the betting public has caught up to the Utes, or should I say: Caught down to the Utes, who are 1-4 against the spread since their midseason peak. Pick: Colorado.

    Straight-up winners: Washington, Cal, Stanford, UCLA, Oregon and Utah.

    Five-star special: Oregon. The line has climbed to 35. Not nearly enough. This could be a Civil War all-timer.
