    Went 59-21 last year. Neh.

    But I'm going to put on my thinking cap this year.

    Thursday

    Utah 40, Montana State 13: Utes want to take control quickly, let the backups see some action, then focus on the visit to USC on Sept. 10.

    Arizona State 44, UC Davis 10: The Sun Devils want to take control quickly, let the backups see some action, then focus on the visit from Missouri on Sept. 9.

    Saturday

    LSU 24, Oregon 21: Sure, the Tigers took the prize for off-field distractions, losing QB Jordan Jefferson to suspension. But here's the problem: LSU not only eclipses Auburn's front-seven from 2010, it's exponentially better in the secondary, so Ducks QB Darron Thomas won't pass for 363 yards when the running game gets stumped.

    USC 38, Minnesota 17: Guess here is Trojans QB Matt Barkley gets off to a good start and the Trojans defense looks much improved.

    UCLA 30, Houston 24: No idea how the two quarterbacks are going to work for the Bruins, but they should have enough to win against a tough Houston team.

    Oregon State 30, Sacramento State 17: Beavers are banged up*but still*likely will try to play vanilla schemes,*which means this one might be more competitive than Beavers fans would like.

    Stanford 48, San Jose State 13: Andrew Luck will put up good numbers, and David Shaw will get off to a good start as the Cardinal coach.

    Washington State 45, Idaho State 20: The Cougs will be 1-0 for the first time since 2005.

    California 28, Fresno State 24: QB Zach Maynard will be solid in his Cal debut and the defense will keep the Bulldogs in check.

    Washington 38, Eastern Washington 21: A winning debut for new Huskies QB Keith Price, but Eagles, the top-ranked FCS team,*are no easy out.

    Arizona 45, Northern Arizona 20: The Wildcats and QB Nick Foles put up big passing numbers, then rest in the fourth quarter and focus on their visit to Oklahoma State on Sept. 8.

    Colorado 38, Hawaii 35: The Buffaloes end an 18-game road losing streak and the Jon Embree Era starts with a solid victory.

    The UCLA-Houston matchup may be the best game on the schedule this week in the 3:30 EDT timeslot.

    Ted Miller should have included TV schedules, or at least repped the games on ESPN.
