I've never really liked making predictions. Unless you're Trev Alberts your opinion doesn't seem to count, but none the less they're pretty popular on blogs for a reason or two, the biggest course is that...They're easy.

Notre Dame @ Washington

Washington just really isn't playing great football. Weis and company will roll over the Huskies despite any home advantage Seattle (Man I love Seattle...) might provide. The media said during the off season it would be a long time before Notre Dame could put together anywhere near a 10 win season. The Irish will lose atleast 2 more games this year (Tenessee & USC,) but there's no chance Washington will be included. ND by 17.

USC @ Oregon

Oregon has looked pretty decent on the offensive side of the ball this year. Yeah, they racked most of their yards against Houston and Montana, but by the Fresno game they looked they could execute their new Utah/BYU/Texas/Oregon hybrid offense pretty well. Enough to score 30 on USC? No, but Oregon plays well at home and will should give a solid 4 quarters unless they're down by 40+. This is a better team then Arkanasas and they're in Autzen too. Home team gets an extra touchdown... Oregon could beat Arkansas by 2 touchdowns. A mathematician says: USC: 70 Oregon: 38

Hawaii @ Idaho
Hawaii plays crappy on the mainland... Idaho was blown out by a pretty mediocre Washington squad...
The game will come down to which QB can execute. Both have completed over 60% of their passes with Brennan at almost 70. I'm going to take Idaho in a poorly executed nail biter. Idaho by a field goal.

I love the concept of focusing on one region and doing it well. I will keep reading your site for information on the NW schools.

I am not sure if you are being self deprecating or self agrandizing comparing yourself to Alberts:)

I think Hawaii is going to blow-out Idaho.
