#41 Oregon at #35 Utah - Important NCAA bubble match. Oregon needs the win more than Utah does but Utah would love to practically cement its spot with a win over a ranked team at home. The two teams matchup very evenly, with no clear cut favorite at each line, even though Laurent at #1 is the most solid favorite for Oregon though that is not a sure win either. I think Oregon will come out and get the doubles point and ride the momentum to a win despite the Utah resistance. Prediction: Oregon 4-2
#2 UCLA at Arizona - Prediction: UCLA 4-0
#16 Southern Cal at #33 Arizona State - Of the 2 big home matches for ASU this weekend, this is the one that the Sun Devils really could win and I actually expect them to. With a nice home crowd and a good team effort I believe they can topple the Trojans. Prediction: Arizona State 4-3
I will be attending both Utah home matches this weekend, on Friday vs Washington at 4pm (mountain time) and vs Oregon on Saturday at noon. This will be my 1st visit to the George S. Eccles Tennis Center and I am excited to check it out with two good Pac 12 matches. The weather looks like it will force the matches indoor. You can follow my updates on the matches by following my twitter @j_j_j_t_m . I will provide score updates, videos of big points, observations etc.
