Pac-12The Trojans have a chance to gain even more national legitimacy if they can beat No. 20 Utah in Salt Lake City on Saturday, something very few teams have been able to accomplish in recent years.

The other close game this week should be Oregon State hosting Washington State, a game where once again the Beavers and Cougars find themselves in similar positions as only one team can move to 5-2 this season—a much different feeling than 4-3.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I examine the biggest storylines from the biggest Pac-12 Football games in Week 7.

For the Beavers, how many turnovers do they cough up to an aggressive Cougars defense? And how much production do they get from the QB position? Those will be among the biggest factors in determining if they get the win.

Can they really turn the ball over twice and still get a victory?

For today’s Pac-12 Prime Picks. Spencer is joined by CBS College Football analyst Danny Kanell for this week’s edition of the Pac-12 Prime Picks.

We both love Utah -3.5 at home against USC to hand the Trojans their first 2022 loss. We also explain why we like Washington as home favorites against Arizona and feel the same way about Notre Dame over Stanford.
