CFB: (17) Arizona St. at (14) UCLA

Virtually unnoticed all season, the Arizona State Sun Devils could make a major statement on Saturday: By beating the UCLA Bruins in Pasadena, Calif., Todd Graham's crew would earn a trip to the Pac-12 title game. Of course, should the home team take the spoils, things get murkier in the Pac-12 South.

Things are pretty interesting in the Pac-12 these days. Oregon is a perennial contender but just lost coach Chip Kelly to the NFL. Stanford won the conference last season, but will the Cardinal be able to repeat? Then there's the rise of UCLA, USC's constant state of flux and many other bits of intrigue out West. How will these teams stack up in 2013? Make your picks!

Things are pretty interesting in the Pac-12 these days. Oregon is a perennial contender but just lost coach Chip Kelly to the NFL. Stanford, too, saw a star coach (Jim Harbaugh) and QB (Andrew Luck) depart not long ago but went on to win the conference last season. Then there's the rise of UCLA, USC's constant state of flux and many other bits of intrigue out West. How will these teams stack up in 2013? Click on the boxes to make your picks!
