Cal fell from the ranks of the unbeaten and the top 25 after a 17-24 loss to Arizona St. and look to rebound quickly and return to the top 25. Oregon remains the Pac-12’s best chance to make the College Football Playoff, but a home loss to a now unranked Cal team will bring that to an end.

Stanford still has some fight left in them and are always a threat at home. If the Huskies want to win the Pac-12 North this is a must win.

Remember when Boise was the perennial BCS buster and looking to breakthrough and get to the BCS National championship game? Now they don’t have to be one of the top 2 just one of the top 4. In a year where the top teams from the power 5 may lose 2 or more games an undefeated Boise team can make a case.
Boise wins 38-16
