Pac-12 Week 6 Predictions: Utah-California Showdown, Oregon and Arizona State Look to Build Momentum

The Pac-12 is home to one of college football’s most intriguing matchups for Week 6. California travels to Salt Lake City for a key conference contest against Utah. The Utes are undefeated and ranked among the best in the nation. However, coach Kyle Whittingham’s team will have a tough time slowing down the Golden Bears’ high-powered offense. Outside of the California-Utah showdown, there’s not a lot of intrigue in the other four Pac-12 games. Three of the matchups are double-digit point spreads, and the line on Oregon State-Arizona is unsettled due to the health of Wildcats’ quarterback Anu Solomon.
