Week 5 Pac-12 Predictions: Friday’s Games

Stanford @ Oregon (6:00, Pac-12 Networks)

Oregon finally got a taste of conference victory last Friday, knocking off Washington State. However, their competition Friday night will be much stiffer than anything they saw in Washington.

Winner: Stanford

Washington State @ Arizona State (6:00, Live Stream)

Arizona State is coming off a very impressive week, defeating USC in a monster second half comeback, and hanging tough with UCLA. This should be a very winnable game for the Sun Devils, in a weekend that could get them back to .500 in league play.

Winner: Arizona State

Washington @ Arizona (6:00, Live Stream)

With Jazmine Davis back in action for the Huskies, UW should feel pretty good about this game. However, Arizona will be thrilled to be back at home. If Kama Griffitts gets hot and Davellyn Whyte is her usual self, Washington could be in for quite a fight.

Winner: Arizona

California @ Oregon State (7:00, Live Stream)

The Beavers will have something to prove this weekend, after dropping two overtime decisions last week against the Washington schools. Cal will be pleased to finally see a team that isn’t in the top 20.

Winner: California

Utah @ USC (7:00, Live Stream)

Utah isn’t nearly as bad as their conference record (1-7) would indicated. Six of those seven losses have been at the hands of top-25 teams. Without Taryn Wicijowski in the post, Utah could have a hard time handling Cassie Harberts.

Winner: USC

Colorado @ UCLA (8:00, Pac-12 Networks)

The Buffs will no doubt be hungry for a win over a ranked Pac-12 team, as this is will likely be their last chance before the tournament. UCLA wasn’t outstanding last week in two wins over the Arizona schools. This could be Colorado’s chance.

Winner: Colorado

Record Last Week: 8-4
