Five bottom-dwellers face five contenders. Will someone’s dreams be crushed this weekend?

It’s Halloween weekend and this could be a frightful week for a Pac-12 title contender who overlooks one the Pac-12’s basement-dwellers. Five title hopefuls play five teams with no chance whatsoever at winning the title. In the only matchup between ranked teams, Wazzu travels to the farm to try to win its third straight over the Lobsterbacks. What a crazy world we live in where Wazzu has won 3 of its last 4 against USC and are knocking on the door of a 3-game streak over LSJU.

Week 9’s Pac-12 Schedule

I always find it a bit amusing when both teams from the same region travel to the same region for a game (e.g. Wazzu and UW heading to the Bay Area). I’m picturing a bunch of Wazzu fans and UW fans sitting on opposite sides of a plane and giving each other the side-eye during the whole flight. Am I the only one who is amused by that? Probably. Why am I still writing this? Does anyone read this far in the post, or do you all jump straight to the comments?
