The shine is off for the would-be upstart Huskies according to this week’s roundup of picks.
Figured out these Huskies yet? Washington heads into the weekend at 1-2 to deal with 18th-ranked USC in the Coliseum. Well, coo coo ca choo Mrs. Robinson.
Here’s our weekly roundup of predictions. As you can see, the Huskies bandwagon has plenty of availability:
Art Thiel (3-0 straight up, 2-1 against the spread)
Loss last year in Seattle eats at Trojans like Clorox syrup. It’s also not a good sign when a fifth-year senior quarterback has to spend his bye week working on foot-placement fundamentals that usually are mastered in junior high dance class. USC 38, Washington 17
Seth Kolloen (1-2, 0-3)
In an attempt to match USC’s sideline Hollywood star power, Coach Sark gets Franklin grad Kenny G to stand on the Husky sideline. On a late fourth-quarter Trojan passing attempt, G is overwhelmed by his passion for Husky football, runs on the field and sacks Matt Barkley. The sideline infraction propels USC to a winning TD drive. USC 34, Washington 31.
Todd Dybas (1-2, 0-3)
The Huskies have not done numerous things folks (me) expected them to do. That will change on Saturday because I don’t think their lines or psyche can handle the Trojans. USC 38, Washington 27
