Line: Utah (-2.5)
The Utah Utes fell victim to a trap game last weekend, and now the Pac-12 South is no longer theirs for the taking. Of course, Utah could still make the conference championship game, but its loss to the Arizona Wildcats marked the second loss in the conference, which is also how many losses the USC Trojans have in the Pac-12.
If the UCLA Bruins hand the Utes their second loss in a row, things will really become a mess.
UCLA dropped its third Pac-12 loss of the season against the Washington State Cougars in its last game, proving that no one really wants to make the conference championship game. Side note: The Stanford Cardinal also lost last weekend.
After this game, UCLA will take on the Trojans — because there is apparently no easy games in the Pac-12. Utah has it much easier as it gets the Colorado Buffaloes to close out the regular season.
If you can guess how the rest of the Pac-12 games of 2015 will go down, well, then you are a genius. After last week, it is very clear that no one is safe in this conference, but that has kind of been the theme for college football in 2015 in general.
If you need a reason to believe in UCLA, look no further than QB Josh Rosen. However, if you need a reason to believe in Utah, Devontae Booker is your guy … but his health is still in question for the contest, which is big time.
PREDICTION: Bruins 35, Utes 28
