Here’s the article:
Wilner has them at 5/7, 3/6 in conference and in reading thecardboard.org there isn’t a lot of disagreement. Inexperienced quarterback and a surprising weakness on both lines.
Washington State is curious because Wilner has them also at 5/7 but 2/7 in conference. Wilner cites strong O-line and running backs but difficulties at WR & QB. Also cites a weak front end on their schedule and a “brutal” back end. McMurphy’s article just had his picks without commentary. Looking at WSU’s schedule, I don’t know that I agree with the soft front end and rough back end.
9/4 Utah State
9/11 Portland State
9/25 @ Utah
10/2 @ Cal
10/9 Oregon State
I think USU, PSU & OSU should be wins, Utah & USC losses and Cal a pick 'em. If they can get Cal that gives them a good shot because next is
10/30 @ Arizona State
11/13 @ Oregon
11/26 @ Washington
Stanford, Arizona should be wins, Washington, Oregon & ASU losses. Hopefully even a mid level PAC-12 team can take BYU at home but who knows?
So if WSU can win Stanford, Arizona, Oregon State, plus flip Cal to a W they will still have to upset one of USC, Utah, ASU, OU or UW to be bowl eligible.
