The Pick

Oregon State +10

Oregon State is a very good football team, which they had the chance to prove last week in a very close loss against a top-ranked USC team. Their offense has been very productive all season — QB Chance Nolan has already passed the 900-yard mark, and RB Deshaun Fenwick has rushed for 233 yards over the first four weeks. Utah is a good team, but they struggle to stop high-powered offenses. The Beavers will cover.
