1 Wednesday, Washington State is at Arizona State which can be seen on the PAC-12 Network at 7 pm. It’s not out of the question to see the Cougars get the upset here given that ASU lost at Utah last week.

2 Also on Wednesday on ESPN2 tipping at 8 pm is Washington at Arizona. The Wildcats got out of Seattle with a comeback win a few weeks ago, can the Huskies return the favor?

3 Thursday has three games on the schedule starting with Cal at Oregon on ESPNU at 6 pm. In the team’s first meeting the Golden Bears defeated the Ducks and Mike Montgomery has an excellent win/loss record since coming to Berkeley.

4 The second game on Thursday is on the PAC-12 Network at 7 pm with Utah at Colorado. In the first meeting the Utes beat the Buffs in Salt Lake City.

5 ESPNU has the last game of this day when Stanford is at Oregon State which tips off at 9 pm. Like the other games these two played a close first meeting that the Cardinal won by eight in Palo Alto.
