Pac-12 picks: 14 hours of football Saturday

For the first time this season, every Pac-12 team is in action on the same day. Saturday's schedule serves up 14 continuous hours of Pac-12 play, including one intra-conference matchup.

Coach David Shaw is enough of a historian to make sure the Cardinal appreciate the visit to West Point. Stanford 35, Army 14.

UCLA at Nebraska, 10 a.m. MDT, ABC

The Cornhuskers' defense will be motivated after Brett Hundley and the UCLA offense shredded that proud group last September, but the Bruins should still have enough firepower. UCLA 35, Nebraska 28.

Fresno State at Colorado, 12:05 p.m. MDT, Pac-12 Mountain

Speaking of motivation, the Buffaloes remember being embarrassed in Fresno last year when they trailed 35-0 after one quarter. This game will be more competitive. Fresno State 31, Colorado 24.

Boston College at USC, 1 p.m. MDT, Pac-12 Networks

USC coach Lane Kiffin joked that the guy who was calling the plays in the Trojans' first two games has been fired. We'll see if quarterback Cody Kessler enables USC to pass for more than 54 yards. USC 24, BC 7.

Tennessee at Oregon, 1:30 p.m. MDT, ABC

Chip Kelly's old-and-new offense is clicking from coast to coast. Oregon 45, Tennessee 24.

Washington vs. Illinois (Chicago), 4 p.m. MDT, Big Ten Network

The Huskies get to play at historic Soldier Field, coming off a bye. Washington 31, Ilinois 17.

Southern Utah at Washington State, 4:30 p.m. MDT, Pac-12 Networks

Southern Utah was competitive at California last season, but WSU has an improved defense. Washington State 38, SUU 17.

Ohio State at California, 5 p.m. MDT, Fox

This will be a tough test for Cal freshman quarterback Jared Goff, who has passed for nearly 1,000 yards in two games, including his debut vs. Northwestern of the Big Ten. Whether or not OSU's Braxton Miller plays, Cal's defense likely will be overwhelmed. OSU 42, Cal 24.

Oregon State at Utah, 8 p.m. MDT, Fox Sports 1

This will be a good gauge of the Utes' offensive improvement, but the real issue is whether OSU's patchwork offensive line can protect Sean Mannion, Utah 27, OSU 21.

Wisconsin at Arizona State, 8:30 p.m. MDT, ESPN

There's just not evidence to make a great case for or against either team here, considering their previous level of opposition. The home field should make the difference. ASU 28, Wisconsin 24.

UTSA at Arizona, 8:30 p.m., Pac-12 Networks

The Wildcats conclude the Pac-12's worst nonconference schedule. Arizona 45, UTSA 21.
