22.Sep.2012 Oregon State @ UCLA (Game Thread)
The spread has dropped from -11 to -7.5, Bruins. People are starting to wise up.
If Banker could stop mobile QBs, I'd probably take the Beavs today. UCLA is on a high and patting themselves on the back; the have USC next weekend and likely are thinking about that game. Beavs seem to have some confidence and swagger.
That darn mobile QB, though.
If Banker can somehow figure out a way to stop him, I think the Beavs take this one. Maybe we'll see Trent Bray's influence on the LB corp again and they'll play fast and make the tackles. I am torn because I like the Beav's chances yet I have no faith in Banker stopping Hundley or the read option formations. I do have faith in Bray, but how much influence does he have? Tough call this early in the season. I'm changing my pick from UCLA to a pick 'em/FG game. Team with the ball last wins.
Edit: Beavs redzone offense has been bad for several years, and almost killed them in week 2. That will be another key.
