"Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends" -- Emerson, Lake & Palmer.
Now that you had your early SEC feast, it's PAC-12 time! Look for Stanford at Washington at 1:15 PT on Fox and then Oregon State at USC tonight at 7:30 PT on ESPN.
In PAC-12 North action, #16 Stanford (2-1) travels to Seattle to play Washington (4-0). Stanford leads the nation in both points and yards allowed, and needs to stay on track for the show down at Oregon on November 1. Washington looked shaky under new coach Chris Peterson in its first two games but seems to have steadied the ship in its last two wins over Illinois and Georgia State. The Cardinal lost in Seattle back in 2012. Stanford is favored by 7.5.
There are several good choices for the late afternoon including Notre Dame at Syracuse on ABC at 5:00 PT and Missouri at #13 South Carolina on ESPM at 4:00 PT.
Was two weeks enough for #18 USC (2-1) to fix their problems? They had 20 yards on 29 carries against Boston College, and now their porous defense faces prolific passer Sean Mannion and Oregon State (3-0) in the Coliseum. USC is favored by 9.5.
