    Biggest chances at losses, USC and Washington. Cal could be in trouble too.

    Cal, WSU, and Washington lose, the rest of the P12 teams win.

    That Washington/Boise game will be fun to watch. We could learn a lot about both teams in that one. I'll be watching.

    Northwestern should beat Cal. No expert on what they lost, but the general consensus out there seems to be they're going to pretty good again. This is a team that went 10-3 last year and finished 16th in the country.

    Utah State and Utah is going to be a close one. Don't be shocked if the Utes lose.

    NW returns the majority of it's primary contributors. The same cannot be said of Cal. New Qb, new Rb, very few returning OL starts, young D-line, inexperienced secondary. This game could get ugly.

    I believe Northwestern is a 6 point favorite.

    Utah State
    USC (Hawaii is TERRIBLE)
    Arizona
    Oregon (this game should be over with halfway through the first quarter)
    Oregon State (closer game than one might think, though)
    Auburn
    UCLA
    Boise
    Northwestern easily
    CU

    That is the downside of teams bailing out of contracts although I hate games like this. I love opening day, but going into a game and expecting to win by 100 is a ****ty way to start the season.

    Thursday

    Utah State at Utah - Utah
    USC at Hawaii - USC

    Friday

    Northern Arizona at Arizona - Arizona

    Saturday

    Nicholls State at Oregon - Hmmm
    Eastern Washington at Oregon State - OSU
    Washington State at Auburn - Auburn (Although I really hope WSU pulls one out of their ass)
    Nevada at UCLA - UCLA
    Boise State at Washington - BSU (I hate both teams so this one is tough)
    Northwestern at California - Northwestern

    Why is it ****ty? Oregon will win the game handily. It is a home game so Oregon and its various sponsors will make a boatload of money. They are playing against a cupcake, so the chances are exceedingly high that the backups will see time (i.e. good game for developing depth). Oregon is also breaking in a new head coach - so playing this type of game is good experience for him, too. The only downside to a game like this is the potential for injuries to key players.

    I have been to quite a few of the 60 point wins and I find them boring as hell after the first 15 minutes. I wouldn't mind a game against a Fresno State or something where at least they can make the game interesting for more then half of a quarter.

    Utah - USU has a new coach.
    USC - Kiffin usually starts sucking mid way though the year
    Arizona
    Oregon
    Oregon State
    Auburn
    UCLA
    Boise State - Not as good as before, but UW will continue to underachieve.
    Northwestern - Love their coach.

    Do you really want the game to be "interesting" or do you want to win the ****ing game? At the end of the season, would you rather look back and say, "Well, we finished 5-7 this year - but there were a lot of interesting games!" Or, would you rather finish with 11+ wins? Give me wins. **** "interesting".

    This. This. This. I hate it when somebody says they hope for a good game. My idea of a good game is jumping out to a 28-0 lead in the first quarter and cruising to a 45-13 win.

    I am just saying I would rather play a mid major then beat the **** out of some poor FCS team. I realize that at the end of the season nobody gives a **** who they played as long as they win. I just don't care for the SEC type scheduling that the Ducks seem to be doing as of late although not all of it is their fault.

    Woe is me. The challenges of winning 84-0 and having 11 win seasons.

    Utah will have revenge on their mind plus it seems like they finally have a QB whose body can remain intact. There's a good chance Utah could have had at least a winning record in conference play had Jordan Wynn stayed healthy.

    USC should take care of Hawaii...Hawaii is nowhere near what they used to be under June Jones.

    Careful. CU used to have that "problem" too, once upon a time.
