Pac-12 Pick’Em: Week SixPosted by Connor Pelton on January 2nd, 2013
We are six weeks into our Pac-12 Pick’Em and Adam continues to edge out the rest of us. And now that we are completely done with non-conference play, the amount of available points will drop significantly. Last week was rough on all of us, thanks to teams like Oregon State and California choking away what we thought were sure wins. Drew was the only one to gain any ground, as he was the only one to correctly pick New Mexico’s road upset of Cincinnati. In our other game of the week, Missouri-UCLA, I came the closest to correctly picking the Bruin win. While everyone else picked the Tigers to win by 12 or 16, I had the game going down to the wire with UM pulling out a five-point win. So now, we enter week six. Colorado’s visit to Arizona and Ohio State’s meeting with Illinois headline the list as our games of the week.
|Game||Connor (46-17)||Drew (46-17)||Parker (49-14)||Adam (50-13)|
|Utah at Arizona State||Arizona State||Arizona State||Arizona State||Arizona State|
|Colorado at Arizona||UA 75-70||UA 73-62||UA 70-60||UA 73-62|
|Stanford at USC||Stanford||Stanford||Stanford||Stanford|
|California at UCLA||UCLA||UCLA||UCLA||UCLA|
|Ohio State at Illinois||UI 78-76||OSU 68-64||OSU 65-58||OSU 68-64|
|Stanford at UCLA||UCLA||UCLA||UCLA||UCLA|
|Utah at Arizona||Arizona||Arizona||Arizona||Arizona|
|California at USC||California||California||California||California|
|Washington at Wash State||Washington State||Washington State||Washington State||Wash State|
|Colorado at Arizona State||Colorado||Arizona State||Colorado||Arizona State|
|Oregon at Oregon State||Oregon State||Oregon||Oregon||Oregon|
The biggest differences in opinion this week come in Colorado’s visit to Arizona State. Parker and I pick the road-weary Buffaloes to escape Tempe with the victory, while Drew and Adam took the Sun Devils. Save myslef, everyone else matches on the remainder of the picks. I took Illinois in our national game of the week and Oregon State for a Civil War victory, opting for home-court advantage, something that can be pivotal in conference play.
