Pac-12 picks, the final edition


FROM PULLMAN — Our weekly picks column in the newspaper ended last weekend with the final full slate of Pac-12 games. But since two more games involving conference teams remain until the bowl season, we'll go ahead and forecast those real quick for the record.

UCLA at Stanford (Pac-12 championship game, 5 p.m. Friday on FOX), Stanford by 8.5 — I'd expect more of a fight from UCLA this time around, but the result should be the same as it was last week. Cardinal to the Rose Bowl. Stanford 28-21.

Nicholls State at Oregon State (11:30 a.m. Saturday, Pac-12 Networks), no line — Maybe the Beavers couldn't keep up with the Ducks last week because they were looking ahead to this showdown. OSU 49-10.

Season record: 68-21 straight up, 43-37 against the spread
