Full slate of Pac-10 games on tap

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - After compiling a 20-6 record against nonconference opponents in the first three weeks of the college football season, Pac-10 teams will play a full conference schedule on Saturday.

Top-ranked Southern California will be a 24.5-point favorite to beat Washington State for the fifth straight season at 5 p.m. in Los Angeles. USC is trying to improve its record to 3-0, while the Cougars are 2-1.

Number six California is favored by 16 points to beat Arizona at 3 p.m. in Berkeley. Cal takes a 3-0 record into the game, while Arizona is off to a 1-2 start. Arizona beat Cal last season.

Number 13 Oregon is a 16.5-point favorite against Stanford at 7 p.m. at Stanford. The Ducks have a 3-0 record and Stanford is 1-1.

First-year coach Dennis Erickson's Arizona State Sun Devils will try to improve their record to 4-0 when they're at home in Tempe at 6 p.m. against Oregon State. That's a team Erickson coached to three bowl games from 1999-2002.

The Sun Devils are favored by 12 points to beat the Beavers for the 16th straight time at Sun Devil Stadium. The Beavers are 2-1 this season.

Coach Tyrone Willingham's Washington Huskies will try to bounce back from a 33-14 loss to number eight Ohio State last Saturday in Seattle when they play UCLA in the Rose Bowl at 7:15 p.m.

UCLA is coming off an upset 44-6 defeat at previously winless Utah last Saturday that knocked the Bruins out of the Top 25. But the Bruins are favored by 6.5 points to beat the Huskies.

UCLA has won eight of the schools' last 10 games, but Washington won 29-19 in Seattle last year after trailing 16-0.
