I don’t know if they are potentially a playoff candidate but things opened up for Washington State with their state rivals Washington losing last week at home to USC.
They still have to play the Huskies at home next week but now they are in complete control of their destiny in the PAC 12 North. Provided they win against surprising Colorado of course.
Even more surprising than Washington State has to be Colorado.
They have just the one conference loss and are in control of their destiny too with two difficult home games to close the season.
USC is right behind them and I think they hold the tiebreaker because they beat them early in the season.
Washington State Cougars
Mike Leach is not doing anything new at Washington State.
They have the second best passing offense in the country and on days when the defense shows up it is more than enough to win. That defense has gotten more consistent every season so the wins keep on coming.
The offense does take a little hit with the loss of WR River Cracraft.
Not to belittle the receiver but it is most likely they just continue on – at least he had a good game in his last collegiate game – season high 9 catches and 3 TDs.
WSU gives up some yards through the air but I think a lot of that can be attributed to a lot of teams playing catchup against the Cougars.
They are strong against the run and will need to be sharp to beat Colorado on the road.
They also have to be careful not to get caught looking too far ahead.
Colorado was hoping for steady improvement but everything came together quickly this season. Their only blemishes are road losses to USC and Michigan who are both highly ranked so you can’t judge them too harshly.
They haven’t all been pretty – see 10-5 against Stanford – but they all count the same and now they have a great shot of playing in the PAC 12 title game, it could even be a rematch with Washington State.
The offense has been good enough and the defense has been way better than expected.
The Buffs do have a decent offense. Sefo Liufau is an experienced QB even if his hold on the job is not the strongest in the world.
Phillip Lindsay is a small back who has had some big games.
Michigan might have shut him down but he ran all over Stanford, probably the second best defense on their schedule. The pressure will be on because they are going to have to score.
No way the defense totally limits the Cougars.

Free Week 12 NCAA Football Prediction
Last week was crazy with the shakeup and both of these teams benefited. This week someone will get another boost and with a little luck maybe it could be enough.
Especially if that team is Wazzu which might be able to net a series of big wins if they can get this one.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Washington State +4
The biggest certainty in this one seems to be the Washington State offense.
I am not expecting them to dominate in this one but it is the thing that gives me the most comfort and makes the Cougars a great value, especially as an underdog.
They could be down a couple of scores even and make it up really quickly. Nice value on the moneyline too.
