Unfortunately, the biggest game in the Pac-12 slate this weekend won’t be consumed by a national audience—but that doesn’t mean that Oregon State hosting USC isn’t the matchup the Conference fans should be most excited about this weekend.

It could be the biggest win of Jonathan Smith’s tenure as Oregon State’s head coach, while Lincoln Riley is looking to continue asserting his Trojans squad as a contender in the Pac-12.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I’m joined by senior writer/editor at, Carter Bahns.

After a win last year in the coliseum for the first time in a long time, he shares how confident he is in the Beavers pulling another upset of USC in Corvallis.

With consecutive winning weeks, the Pac-12 Prime Picks are back and Spencer has his best bets of Week 4 as the league heads into conference play.

I share why I’m riding both Oregon schools this week, and why he thinks Washington will keep it rolling at home against Stanford favored by almost 2 touchdowns.
