A Six Pack Of Bold Pac-12 Predictions

1. Colorado won't win a Pac-12 game this season. (Alex Schultz)

2. Arizona upsets both UCLA and Arizona State, but fails to win the South Division. (Chris Wuensch)

3. Colorado's Paul Richardson will finish runner-up to leading receiver Marqise Lee. (Wuensch)

4. Oregon State will use the opulent palace just completed at cross-state rival Oregon as motivation to nip the Ducks in the Civil War. The Beavers will point to T-shirts that read "Marble floors ... we're not worthy" as inspiration. (John Baker)

5. Stanford's Shayne Skov will announce before the Cardinal face Michigan in the Holiday Bowl that his online girlfriend is, contrary to reports, a real person. (Wuensch)

6. The Dennis Erickson as co-offensive coordinator era in Utah lasts just one year before the Utes determine that the journeyman coach’s language is just a little too “salty” for Salt Lake City.
