How will Arizona respond to a massive win in Week One? How will USC look against a Power 5 opponent in Stanford? Will Oregon State’s defense replicate its stellar performance in a road showdown with Fresno State?

These are just some of the questions Pac-12 football fans will look to have answered as the second weekend of games approaches.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I get ready for the upcoming slate of games the Pac-12 has in front of it.

The three biggest games for the Conference this weekend involve Oregon State, Arizona, and the first in-conference matchup featuring Stanford and USC.

I lay out the most important facets of each game that will ultimately decide the outcome.

CBS College Football Analyst Danny Kanell joins the show to look at the upcoming weekend of betting in the Pac-12 for my weekly “Pac-12 Prime Picks” (which weren’t so prime in Week One).

Arizona State has a tough road matchup against Oklahoma State and is a heavy underdog, and may have a tough time covering 11 points on the road in Stillwater.

Oregon State has a tight line down in Fresno this weekend as -1.0 favorites, and both Danny and Spencer like the Beavers again this week.

Their point of difference comes on the Cal Bears, who are almost two-touchdown favorites against UNLV.
