The No. 5 Washington Huskies take on the No. 11 Oregon State Beavers in a Pac-12 matchup in Week 12. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, November 18 from Corvallis, Oregon. Washington is the only undefeated Pac-12 team remaining. You know that part in the Pac-12 season where the conference begins to implode in on itself? This might be it.

Washington (10-0, 7-0 Pac-12) is undefeated, but will the other shoe drop this week? They escaped Utah in their latest game with a 35-28 victory, keeping the Utes scoreless for the entire second half. Quarterback Michael Penix Jr, who is in Heisman talks this year, passed for two touchdowns and rushed for a third in the win. Washington now has ranked wins over Utah, Oregon, and Arizona, and face a major challenge as they come into Corvallis.

Oregon State (8-2, 5-2 Pac-12) brings one of the toughest home atmospheres in college football to the table, as well as a recent slate of impressive wins. The Beavers beat Stanford, 62-17, in their latest game, as QB DJ Uiagalelei passed for 240 yards and two TDs, and RB Damien Martinez rushed for a whopping four touchdowns. The Beavers have losses to Arizona and Washington State this season, and both losses were decided by three points.

Here’s everything you need to know and a pick for the game.

Our Best Bet for Washington vs. Oregon State

Oregon State ML -105

This is going to be a thriller, and I believe the Beavers will come out on top. They’ve had some close ones go against them this season, which is unfortunate, but Washington has been playing with fire in close games since their win over Oregon, and it will bite them here. The Beavers at home are a different beast, and while the line may not be the most profitable as they enter as home favorites, it’s the best bet for this game.
