The Washington Huskies are 8–0 straight up and 5–3 against the spread in their last eight games against Pac-12 opponents. The Huskies hope to keep this trend of success alive on Saturday at home against the USC Trojans.

Washington is an 8-point home favorite at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. With the Pac-12 suffering through a down year with usual powerhouses like Oregon and Stanford struggling, the undefeated Huskies don't have many more chances left on their schedule to make a statement. This game and a road contest in the final week of the regular season against Washington State could help the Huskies make their case to the playoff committee.
