Last week: Lost to Utah 19-14

This week: at Washington (3:30 p.m., Pac-12 Networks)

Comment: Gold doesn’t seem convinced by Oregon State. (I sense a recurring theme here. I think he just doesn’t like Lev and I). Gold had the upstart Beavers way back at No. 11, while Lev and I had them at No. 9. The fact is, they beat Cal, nearly beat Utah and just have generally appeared to make progress. Also, for some reason, Gold has Oregon State three spots behind the woebegone Oregon Ducks. I digress ... for now.
