The Pac-10 continues to be one of the wackiest conferences in the country for football handicappers. 

Mike Rose of writes of Stanford, referencing last week's big win against USC:  "In a radio interview the night before Stanford took on USC, HC Jim Harbaugh quoted WWE Hall of Fame Ric Flair by saying, "In order to be the man, you've got to beat the man." No one said anything about beating the snot out of the man! The Cardinal took out the Trojans with an incredibly impressive 55-21 victory at the Coliseum. Now, the Pac-10 title is within reach with some help." made its prediction on this game - Stanford by 10 points.

Look for Vereen to pick up against Stanford where he left off last week versus Arizona. The shifty sophomore will give Stanford's pedestrian defense some problems and it could lead to some big plays in the passing attack off play-action. However, the Cardinal offense simply has better run-pass balance and Luck will make fewer mistakes than Riley. Expect Stanford to improve its winning streak to four with another impressive offensive outing.
