Went 7-1 last week -- any idea which game I missed?
Things get a little more interesting this week with three marquee nonconference road games and a must-win for Washington State.
USC 27, Ohio State 20: The Buckeyes will show a lot of pride at home, but the Trojans just have too many horses on both sides of the ball.
Tennessee 28, UCLA 17: The difference is the home field -- Neyland Stadium is a heck of a place for a redshirt freshman quarterback and a young offensive line to try to figure things out.
Stanford 30, Wake Forest 27: Win or lose, Stanford looks good enough to earn bowl eligibility this year. But win this game, and the Cardinal might be on to something special.
Oregon 38, Purdue 20: Ducks show up, roll -- welcome back Jeremiah Masoli! -- wish they could get a do-over at Boise State. In more ways than one.
Oregon State 35, UNLV 27: The Rebels receivers will challenge the Beavers' secondary, but there will be too many Rodgerses on the field in Vegas.
Washington 40, Idaho 17: Huskies win! Huskies win! They end their embarrassing 15-game losing streak.
Washington State 31, Hawaii 28: Another step forward for the Cougars, who put up a nice fight against Stanford.
California 50, Eastern Washington 10: The Bears get an easy win a week before heading across the country to Minnesota.
Arizona 38, Northern Arizona 3: The key here for the Wildcats is gaining some confidence on offense, particularly for quarterback Matt Scott -- and maybe Nick Foles, too. Iowa awaits the next weekend as a true test.
