Went 4-0 last week. But, really, who cares. Not me.

Four and Ohhhhhhh!

Season record is 31-13.

Washington 30, Oregon 27: This week's upset special! Plenty of reasons why it could happen, from Ducks quarterback Jeremiah Masoli's questionable knee, to the Huskies' renewed fire, to Oregon looking ahead to USC. But I've just got a hunch. (And, yes, this prediction is inconsistent with my "Second-half outlook" for Oregon. Let's just call this one a feverish vision.)

USC 28, Oregon State 17: The Beavers won't make it easy for USC, but the Trojans are just too tough at home -- and who knows that better than Oregon State?

Stanford 27, Arizona State 24: Went back and forth on this one, but the Sun Devils probably don't have the weapons on offense to make the Stanford defense look as bad as it has the previous two weekends.

Arizona 31, UCLA 27: UCLA's desperate but Arizona's offense is clicking with quarterback Nick Foles. Don't think the Bruins can keep up.

California 40, Washington State 17: Jahvid Best will pile up yards on the ground for Cal, but got a feeling this might stay close for a half until the Cougars' D wears down.
