Line: Washington -1.5

Oregon State brings in a 2 game winning streak into this Pac-10 game. They came off a huge win at Arizona 29-27, but lost their leading receiver James Rodgers. The Beavers are 3-2 this year with a 2-0 Pac-10 record. The Huskies are coming off a tough loss vs Arizona State 24-14 last week. The Huskies are 2-3 with a 1-1 Pac-10 record. They are 1-2 at home this year and have 3 more ranked opponents after this battle vs ranked Oregon State

The Beavers have not been solid on defense allowing 30 points a game, 89th worst. They have put up 28 points a game on offense which is good for 62nd. Their rushing game has been sub-par averaging 115.4 yards a game, 94th worst. Their passing game is averaging 227.4 yards a game, 56th overall. The X-factor for the Beavers is Jazquizz Rodgers. The Junior RB has 481 yards with 7 TDs and will need to pick up some of the slack left by his injured brother.

Washington is allowing 30.8 points a game on defense which is 94th worst. Their offense comes in at 77th averaging 25 points a game. Their rushing game has shown up posting 170 yards a game, 47th in the nation. Their passing game has been good as well putting up 229.8 yards a game, 54th overall. The X-factor for the Huskies is Senior QB Jake Locker who has 1,145 yards with 8 TDs and 3 Ints. He also has 218 yards on the ground with 3 more TDs.

Many people coming into this season had Jake Locker as the #1 pick in the NFL draft following this season. His stock has sunk some as he has failed to carry his team to more wins. This Washington team has good offensive pieces, but their defense has killed them. This is one of the tougher football picks of the week and I believe this Washington team will get the job done. Oregon State lost their best WR and should feel the effects.
