This week's best bets

No. 10 UCLA at No. 20 Arizona: In a weak week of marquee matchups, this might be the best. QB Anu Solomon led the Wildcats to an upset of Oregon and the Pac-12 South title last year. Bruins true freshman QB Josh Rosen has been impressive.

No. 21 Utah at No. 12 Oregon: Since joining the Pac-12, the Utes are 0-2 against the Ducks. To break that skid, Utah must figure out a way to not give up 47.5 points a game to Oregon.

No. 17 Texas A&M at Arkansas: Bret Bielema's bluster took at hit when his Hogs lost to Toledo. An upset of the Aggies would even the ledger.

Tennessee at Florida: This used to be the circle-that-date game in the SEC East. Now, it'll be a good gauge of which program is further along in its rebuilding.
