Arizona State 31, Washington 27: If there's a bowl-salvation game in early October, this is it.
Oregon 55, WSU 17: About as bad a matchup as it gets for the Cougars.
California 28, UCLA 17: Bears either learn from Nevada debacle, or succumb to the Pistol again.
Stanford 37, USC 33: This will require passion from the Trojans, something missing so far.
Arizona 34, Oregon State 30: Third top-10 opponent for Beavers, all on the road.
Last week — 2-2 (4-0 vs. spread). Season — 32-6 (19-11-1).
