Week 5 Pac-12 Predictions: Sunday’s Games

Colorado @ USC (10:00 a.m., Pac-12 Network)

Colorado played easily their worst game of their season on Friday against UCLA. USC is also coming off a tough three-point loss to a scrappy Utah team. This contest will be all about who can bounce back from disappointment the quickest.

Winner: USC

Washington @ Arizona State (10:00 a.m., Pac-12 Network)

Washington is on a roll, having won their last five contests, and carrying a 7-2 Pac-12 record. The Sun Devils followed up some good performances in Southern California by laying an egg on their own home court, getting blown out by Washington State on Friday. Look for Washington to advance to 8-2 on Sunday.

Winner: Washington

Utah @ UCLA (12:30, Live Stream)

After sitting out last weekend’s games with a back injury, Markel Walker nearly recorded a triple double against Colorado, finishing with 17 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists. Additionally, Walker was a perfect 6-of-6 from the field. However, Utah will be looking to make it two in a row after an impressive victory at USC.

Winner: UCLA

California @ Oregon (1:00, Live Stream)

California played stellar defense on Friday, allowing only 38 points to Oregon State. The Ducks put up a pretty solid fight against Stanford, but still fell by 24 points. The Bears should feel pretty comfortable about their chances to advance to 9-1 in conference, even if they are without the services of Reshanda Gray for the second straight game.

Washington State @ Arizona (1:00, Live Stream)

Tara VanDerveer will be looking for her 401st Pac-12 victory, after picking up number400 against Oregon on Friday night. Scott Rueck’s club had a hard time hitting shots against California, only scoring 38 points.

Winner: Stanford
