TWIT-Pac brings us three conference games and three non-conference games.

ESPN will be bringing the nation’s eyes to Boise to watch the Beaver/Bronco tilt, but all six Pac-10 games feature at least one ranked team.

Just another week of high-quality West Coast football.

Here’s what to watch and where:

Sat. Sep. 25

(all times Arizona/Pacific)

Road Team Home Team Time TV
USC WSU 12 p.m. FSNW
Stanford Notre Dame 12:30 p.m. NBC
UCLA Texas 12:30 p.m. ABC/
OSU Boise State 5 p.m. ABC
Cal ARIZONA 7 p.m. KWBA/Fox Sports AZ Plus
Oregon ASU 7:30 p.m. FSNW

USC (3-0 / 0-0) at WSU (1-2 / 0-0)
This has to be the week USC finally puts it together, right? But, then again, Wazzu beat their FCS opponent so maybe the Cougars are better than Minnesota. Fun fact: USC has gone for two after seven of its 11 touchdowns. Those seven two-point attempts have produced a total of four points. This is why they invented placekickers, Lane.

Who do Wildcat fans want to win?
USC. You don’t want the Trojans to go into the tank until after they’ve beaten Stanford and Oregon.

Stanford (3-0 / 1-0) at Notre Dame (1-2)
The Cardinal won a 45-38 barn-burner against the Irish last year. You think Arizona is prime for a trap game? Stanford plays at Oregon next week.

UCLA (1-2 / 0-1) at Texas (3-0)
The story all week has been UCLA’s 66-3 win in Austin in 1997. You may remember who was coaching the Longhorns in that game. Hopefully you’ve forgotten everything about his next coaching job.

OSU (1-1 / 0-0) at Boise State (2-0)
Beaver QB Ryan Katz threw for 301 yards…if you combine the first two games. BSU’s Kellen Moore has seven career 300 yard games. I hope Jacquizz Rodgers brought his Superman cape.

Cal (2-1 / 0-0) at ARIZONA (3-0 / 0-0)
The Cats are coming off a big win. Cal is coming off an embarrassing loss. Arizona has the better team, the better quarterback, and the home field advantage. Yes, I’m worried too.

Oregon (3-0 / 0-0) at ASU (2-1 / 0-0)
Jeremiah who? Oregon leads the nation in scoring at 63 points per game. The Devils continue to look for their first win over an FBS team.

Who do Wildcat fans want to win?
ASU. Don’t think of it as rooting for the Sun Devils as much as rooting against the Ducks. This has nothing to do with ASU’s bowl chances or recruiting prospects. If you want Arizona to win the Pac-10 you want Oregon to lose as many games as possible.

Washington (1-2 / 0-0) – bye
Jake Locker will complete just four fewer passes than last week.

I took a look at the standings and it still says 0-0 next to Arizona. The rest of the Pac-10 doesn’t care about the Iowa win. The Cats will have to prove themselves all over again.

If last Saturday was Opportunity Day for the Wildcats this Saturday is Opportunity for a Letdown Day. A business-like win is the goal, a fast start would be beneficial and a loud home crowd would help a lot.

The Arizona Stadium crowd has to prove itself all over again too.
