Utah has now won 14 of their last 15 meetings with Utah State, as
the Utes beat the Aggies 24-14 this weekend. Utah has not been overwhelming ing
going 2-0, and looks vulnerable heading into conference play.
USC wrapped up their weak sister conference slate by pounding on
Idaho this week after beating up on Arkansas State last week. This is the
weakest non-con slate I’ve seen the Trojans play in years.
UCLA took a trip out to the Mojave, and treated my Father and I(and
about 16,000 other UCLA supporters) to a largely uneven, sloppy at times win
over UNLV 37-3. The Bruins defense and run games were sharp as a tack, but Josh
Rosen slid backwards a bit. Of course, he only had about 10 of his bullet
passes dropped, so there’s that.
Arizona survived up in Reno again, as they survived against UTSA
last week. Arizona is not playing their best football right now, and are
allowing inferior opponents to hang around. They still get a pass for opening
it up in the second half.
Colorado was in a trap game against U Mass this weekend, but the
trap proved weak, as the Buffaloes rebounded from an embarrassing loss to
Hawaii last week with a 48-14 win.
Washington State bounced back as well this week after getting
beaten by FCS member Portland State last weekend, and they fought and scrapped
for a 37-34 road win at Rutgers. The Cougars still are not sharp, but they
needed that win in a big way.
California jumped all over San Diego State after falling behind
7-0, and the Bears never allowed another point in a 35-7 win at home. The Bears
schedule starts to tighten up this week, so we shall see where they go from
Stanford bounced back from a tough week last weekend, and beat up
on downtrodden UCF 31-7 at home. Kevin Hogan bounced back big, and now USC
If Washington can’t destroy Sacramento State, then how bad are they?
We won’t have to answer that, because the Huskies scored all their points in
the 2nd and 3rd quarters in a 49-0 rout.
FAIL: Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona State
Oregon had a serious chance at making it 2-0 against Michigan
State, but Vernon Adams missed a wide open receiver in the end zone, and the
Spartans held on to split the series with the Ducks, and likely push Oregon out
of the final four conversation…for now.
Oregon State completed just nine passes in losing to Michigan 35-7
on the road after struggling badly the week before in a 26-7 win over Weber
State. The Beavers look like they could be the worst team in the conference
We go from the worst to
the straight up overrated, as Arizona
State needed a 14-0 4th quarter run to beat Cal Poly 35-21 this
weekend. The Sun Devils, who were ranked in the teens in most polls entering
the season, are out of all of them, and look like they may struggle in
