Outside of our traditional California rivals, which Pac-12 team do you enjoy playing the least and would be happiest to sacrifice for an extra non-conference game?
Avinash Kunnath: Oregon State. Because those Beavers are pretty much just vipers almost everytime we face them. I don't enjoy playing them regularly. There is little upside in beating them and we seem to always end up getting beaten by them on way too many occasions. It's just a very annoying game that we have to play every year that rarely goes well for us.
Washington State isn't a game I'd miss a lot, but we seem to beat them a lot, so I don't mind keeping that game when every other team in the Pac-12 just seems to do a pretty good job of playing our game.
ragnarok: Would I miss playing Washington State every year? Would I even notice they weren't on the schedule? Probably not. There's no upside to playing the Cougars (other than a usually winnable game), and I'm certainly not planning on ever making another roadtrip back to Pullman.
