    All games are on Saturday this week

    Utah State @ USC
    Idaho @ UW
    BYU @ UU
    UNLV @ UCLA
    TTU @ ASU
    WSU @ Boise St.
    Cal @ SDSU
    UVA @ UO
    Grambling State @ UofA

    Would not be surprised to see the USU vs USC game to be much closer than it should be. I think it may take them a week or two to get over what happened in Game 1.

    I could see Utah, ASU, WSU and Cal all losing this week as well. Definitely going to learn some things about our conference foes this week.

    This is a pretty big week for the Pac-12. Lots of games that could go either way.

    Looking at the "off the radar" opponents:
    • UVA lost to the Richmond Spiders last week.
    • SDSU beat NH 31-0
    • UNLV won 63-13 against Jackson St
    • USU beat Weber St 45-6
    • Idaho beat Montana St 20-17

    Looks like the best games will be:
    • Cal @ SDSU
    • WSU @ Boise St
    • TTU @ ASU
    • BYU @ UU

    The rest should be beat downs. If UNLV hangs with UCLA, UVA makes a game of it against UO, or USU is competitive against USC, those teams are in trouble vs season expectations.

    Of the 4 games you mention at the bottom, I think Utah is the only winner.

    That would be delightful.
    That is a great scouting game for our offense against the ASU defense - and a win would have Chev chirping at everyone about must win/will win.

    ASU's secondary sucks, and Maholms is good at getting the ball out early and avoiding the sack. This isn't a good match up for them.

    BYU/Utah can be nasty and chippy. Watching for that alone.

    Congrats Buffs on the CSU beatdown. Idaho State would lose to your practice squad, enjoy the week off. Here's to USC losing to Utah State, (in state Aggie pride trumps U$C PAC pride )and Utes clubbing byu!

    Ya good luck in the holy war. Hoping for two successful seasons and that CU and Utah meet in Boulder at the end of November to decide the South Champion. I can dream right?

    If I can dream, I'm dreaming the Buffs have already won the South and this game has playoff implications. :D

    That would be epic if the two newbies were representing the PAC. I will join the dream there.

    I'd be surprised the other way. USC will maim them. They will rip Utah St. apart, obliterate them. USC will stomp on their balls.

    Maybe. However they lack leadership, and there star WR is throwing temper tantrums and pouting at practice. If USU is able to deliver a few successful counter punches, USC could fold. I expect the Trojans to win, but I think the game is going to be close.

    That's great for my schedule this week, but sucks donkey balls for national viewership.

    Expect ASU to get torched. They gave up 350+ yards passing last week against Northern Arizona. Yikes!

    Yep T Tech might have a field day. Some would say, what about the heat? I don't think they pay it much mind living in Lubbock.

    They play at night. It will be hot, but won't be killer.

    How will Webb do now that he is playing against a fairly good SDSU defense that is designed to neutralize spread attacks?

    My bet is not nearly as good as he did against Hawaii.

    Last week was a disaster for UVA. Absolute disaster. Something like 48-24 Ducks.
