Week 4 football picks from the Pac-12 College Wire sites

Can you believe it has nearly been an entire month of college football?

We are in the final stretch of the first month, and the Pac-12 Conference has done rather well. Washington, Washington State, UCLA, Oregon State, and USC are all 3-0, although the Beavers and Trojans face each other this weekend.

Arizona State finally ended the Herm Edwards era, and there are still a lot of questions about both Utah and Oregon after they both won two straight following opening week losses.

Once again, the teams at the Pac-12 College Wire sites are predicting the Pac-12 slate for the week. Here are the overall records so far, in parentheses, with last week’s results listed first:

  • Zac Neel (Ducks Wire) 9-2 (29-5)

  • Don Smalley (Ducks Wire) 9-2 (28-6)

  • Andy Patton, 9-2 (Ducks Wire) (27-7)

  • Matt Zemek, 8-3 (Trojans Wire) (28-6)

  • Matt Wadleigh, 7-4 (Trojans/Buffaloes Wire) (26-8)

  • Don James, 8-3 (Trojans Wire) (26-8)

  • Jack Carlough, 9-2 (Buffaloes Wire) (29-5)

  • Tony Cosolo, 7-4 (Buffaloes Wire) (25-9)

  • Patrick Conn, 7-4 (College Wires Regional Editor) (28-6)

Here are the predictions for Week 4.
