Week 2 was a rough one for the old Under the Rim crystal ball.
I went a humbling 7-5 and fell to 0-2 picking the Buffs straight up.
Outside of Boulder, it was a surprisingly good week for the Pac-12, which went 6-1 against teams from other BCS conferences, including 3-0 against the Big Ten.
Meanwhile, Colorado lost to an FCS squad tabbed ninth in the preseason Big Sky poll.
Here’s the rewind:
Utah at Utah State
My prediction: Utes escape Logan with a 27-24 victory. Actual outcome: Utes upset in overtime, 27-20.
Even worse, Utah quarterback Jordan Wynn’s career is over due to injuries.
Southern Utah at Cal
My prediction: Bears bounce back, 40-14. Actual outcome: Bears bounce back, 50-31.
Cal plays at Ohio State this week. Good luck with that.
Eastern Washington at Washington State
Prediction: Mike Leach gets first win, 30-27. Actual outcome: Mike Leach gets first win, 24-20.
Not sure the Buffs could beat Eastern Washington, let alone Washington and Washington State.
Illinois at Arizona State
My prediction: Sun Devils win 34-28. Actual outcome: Sun Devils romp, 45-14.
Todd Graham off to a strong 2-0 start in Tempe.
Oklahoma State at Arizona
My prediction: No. 18 Pokes win 45-30. Actual outcome: Wildcats dominate, 59-38.
Before the season, Tucson looked like a good place for a CU road win. Now, not so much.
Duke at Stanford
My prediction: Cardinal wins, 27-17. Actual outcome: Cardinal wins big, 50-13.
Still not sure what to make of Stanford without Andrew Luck.
USC at Syracuse
My prediction: Trojans crush the Orange, 42-20. Actual outcome: Trojans dent the Orange, 42-29.
No. 2 is a good position for USC to be in. Let the spotlight shine on Alabama until January.
Wisconsin at Oregon State
My prediction: Badgers avoid upset, 31-27. Actual outcome: Badgers fall in Corvallis, 10-7.
Wisconsin fires offensive line coach after game. Classy.
Fresno State at Oregon
My prediction: Ducks win 50-20. Actual outcome: Ducks win 42-25.
I have a feeling Fresno State will take it out on a different Pac-12 team this Saturday.
Washington at LSU
My prediction: Tigers win comfortably, 32-17. Actual outcome: Tigers win easily, 41-3.
Huskies obviously have a long way to go to be back in the national championship hunt.
Nebraska at UCLA
My prediction: Big Red wins, 29-23. Actual outcome: Bruins win, 36-30.
Not exactly a Rose Bowl preview, but a terrific college atmosphere and game.
Sacramento State at Colorado
My prediction: Buffs notch first win, 38-17. Actual outcome: Buffs stunned, 30-28.
My season record: 17-6 (.739)
