USC Trojans: The Trojans (7-3 straight up, 3-7 against the spread) snapped a 2-game skid with a 38-17 win and cover at home vs. Arizona State last Saturday. Curtis McNeal rushed for 163 yards and two scores as Southern Cal overcame five turnovers, including three Matt Barkley interceptions. The Trojans have won the last five meetings with UCLA, covering the last three, and emerged with wins in five of their last six series clashes at the Rose Bowl.

UCLA Bruins: The Bruins (8-2 SU, 6-4 ATS) can clinch their second straight appearance in the Pac-12 title game with a victory over USC on Saturday. UCLA posted its fourth consecutive victory last week with a 44-36 triumph at Washington State. Special teams and the defense scored twice to help build a 37-7 halftime lead, and Brett Hundley threw for 261 yards and three TDs. Four of the last five USC-UCLA battles at the Rose Bowl have failed to reach the total.

Ohio State Buckeyes: The Buckeyes (10-0 SU, 5-5 ATS) come off their bye week looking to keep their unbeaten record intact. Sophomore QB Braxton Miller has passed for over 1,750 yards and 14 TDs, and also leads the team in rushing (1,166 yards) with 13 more scores on the ground. Four of OSU's last five games have jumped the total, and four of the last six meetings against Wisconsin have also gone "over."

Wisconsin Badgers: With Ohio State ineligible for the Big Ten Championship, the Badgers (7-3 SU, 5-5 ATS) can punch their ticket to the conference title tilt with a victory Saturday and again next week at Penn State. Wisconsin bounced back from a tough loss vs. Michigan State by rolling Indiana last Saturday, 62-14. The Badgers set a school record with 564 yards rushing in the rout, attempting only seven passes in the contest. Wisconsin is 13-1 in its last 14 games at Camp Randall.

Stanford Cardinal: The Cardinal (8-2 SU, 6-4 ATS) picked up their fourth straight win, and second consecutive cover, with a 27-23 decision vs. Oregon State a week ago. Stanford worked around four turnovers and scored the winning TD with just over five minutes remaining. The defense ranks 12th in the country allowing just 17.2 PPG, but has allowed 47.0 PPG in the last seven matchups vs. Oregon.

Oregon Ducks: Keeping their perfect season going, the Ducks (10-0 SU, 6-4 ATS) posted their fifth straight cover with a 59-17 pasting of Cal on the road as huge 31½-point favorites. Marcus Mariota threw six touchdown passes in the contest, three of them to Josh Huff. Oregon has won nine of the last 10 games vs. Stanford, and the last seven in this series have finished above the total.
