Collegefootballnews' Matthew Smith Picks all the Winners for all Bowl Games from Dec 31st on through the National Championship Game

Pac-10 Games

Oregon St (-2.5) vs Pitt
If the Beavers were fully healthy, I would like their chances here. But with both Rodgers brothers out, they'll be hurting on offense and I don't think that they can stop Pitt from tearing it up in the running game.
Pitt 34, Oregon St 24

USC (-8.5) vs Penn St
This line has moved down a bit from where it opened, but I actually still think it's a touch high. USC has constantly shown that they can't be under-estimated in big games, but I do think that Penn St is good enough to hang with them and has a shot at the upset. In other words, more than a touchdown line is too much.
USC 24, Penn St 17
