The Pick

Washington State +14

It would’ve been great to get this number at +14.5 when it opened, but the Cougars should keep the deficit within two touchdowns. Washington State has played surprisingly well after the loss of head coach Nick Rolovich and four assistants. Meanwhile, Oregon doesn’t seem to have that killer instinct to blow teams out. The only two FBS teams the Ducks beat by more than two touchdowns are the Arizona Wildcats and Colorado Buffaloes, which have a combined three Pac-12 wins.
