In My Defense: Week 8 PAC-12

Of the three games I cared to watch...I would have lost each of them to the 'book. But my Perfect Parlay Card didn't have a single PAC-12 team. But with the weekend's results...I wish it would have...

UCLA 12 @ Arizona 48
My Pick: 'Zona 31-27 (Push the spread)
In My Defense: I've been asking Arizona to wake up all year. I guess all they needed was a bye week and a new coach to get it done. It may be a little more difficult against a Washington team next week though.

Oregon 45 @ Colorado 2
My Pick: Oregon to cover 41-9
In My Defense: I'm was trying to be nice to Colorado and give them an offensive score.

Utah 10 @ California 34
My Pick: Cal to cover 17-13 in a snoozer of a game
In My Defense: After the beat down against USC, I thought Cal was "that bad"..but it turns out Utah may just be the team that's "that bad"...

USC 31 @ Notre Dame 17
My Pick: USC to cover +9...but ND to win 28-24
In My Defense: Never doubt the timely arrival of the Trojan man. Stanford, Washington and Oregon remain. Can USC hang on to the top spot in the South Division?

Washington 21 @ Standford 65
My Pick: Washington to cover +21.5...but Stanford 42-21
In My Defense: I finally get it. Don't bet against Stanford. They're perfect ATS, Heisman candidate quarterback, a running game, a defense, etc. They're good. Let's just see if the line against USC is going to be 20+.

Washington St. 21 @ Oregon St. 44
My Pick: Wash St cover 34-17
In My Defense: The bottom half of the PAC-12 is all over the place. OSU beats 'Zona. 'Zona beats UCLA. UCLA beats Wazzu. Wazzu beats themselves.

THIS WEEK
Straight Up: 4-2
Putting My Money Where My Mouth Is: 3-3 (with a gutsy "push" call that was bound to get me...)

OVERALL
Straight Up: 13-4
Putting My Money Where My Mouth Is: 8-9
