Crystal Helmet, Week 12

Posted by Jerry Brewer

College picks

UCLA 21, Washington 13
Why:
It's the most winnable game of the season for the Huskies. But when you're 0-9, what does that really mean? Rick Neuheisel's return to Husky Stadium is shaping up to be merely a mild affair for UW fans, with the team's poor play having sucked the venom out of this game. It will be entertaining but fruitless in the end.

Arizona State 45, Washington State 14
Why:
There's no use ruining a perfectly bad Apple Cup next week by having one of the teams win. The Sun Devils triumph, setting up the battle between two intrastate rivals who haven't really come close to a victory in Pac-10 play.

Oregon State 31, California 24
Arizona 37, Oregon 34
USC 42, Stanford 13

NFL picks

Arizona 28, Seahawks 20
Why:
Matt Hasselbeck to the rescue? Nah. Not with Kurt Warner channeling his late-90s mojo. The Cardinals are a superior team, at least this season, and even though the Seahawks are struggling, Arizona needs to beat the former NFC West top dog to signal a changing of the guard. The Cardinals will win the game, but I'm not so sure they will send a message of permanent change.

New York Giants 21, Baltimore 10
Tennessee 17, Jacksonville 6
Pittsburgh 24, San Diego 17
Denver 35, Atlanta 33

Last week's record: 7-3
Season to date: 74-36 (67.3 percent)
