After Thursday night’s game between Utah and Washington State, there are no games this weekend in the Pac-12 that feature single-digit betting lines according to oddsmakers.

There is a bevy of opportunities for ‘trap games’ but will we see any come to fruition this weekend?

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I talk about any potential upsets that could shake up the Pac-12 Championship picture.

I go through the weekend slate of games and discuss which (if any) of the 3 Pac-12 title favorites (USC, UCLA, Oregon) could be lined up for a trap game this weekend as a double-digit favorite.

Arizona football Pac-12Arizona feels like a team that is primed to pull an upset this season with their revamped offense, but is USC a matchup that allows for that?

UCLA comes back home against Stanford, who have won two in a row, but after a loss at Oregon, they might be in a perfect bounce-back spot to stay alive in the Pac-12 Championship picture.
