No. 4 Michigan vs. Indiana
Michigan RB Blake Corum is off to a great start this season averaging 122.2 rushing yards per game and 10 touchdowns, which leads the nation.
Corum takes on an Indiana defense that’s played better despite the unit giving up an average of 142.6 yards rushing per game.
Michigan (5-0) is seeking its first back-to-back 6-0 starts since 1976-77. Indiana (3-2) has won only two games in this series since 1968 and is 2-19 all-time in the series at Memorial Stadium in Indiana.
No. 11 Utah vs. No. 18 UCLA
UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson earned Pac-12 offensive player of the week honors after his stellar four touchdown performance last week against No. 21 Washington.
Robinson will look to have another elite performance against No. 11 Utah (4-1) and a defense led by cornerback Clark Phillips III, who had three interceptions, including one for a touchdown, in a win over Oregon State last week. Phillips was voted the league’s defensive player of the week.
No. 18 UCLA (5-0) has a chance to move to 6-0 for the first time since 2005. But the Bruins have lost five straight games to Utah.
Washington St. vs. No. 6 USC
No. 6 USC (5-0) squares off with Washington State (4-1) in a contest that’s pivotal for both teams in their quest for the Pac-12 title.
Trojans QB Caleb Williams has thrown for 12 touchdowns against one interception. He has also rushed for three scores. Williams will have to be on top of his game against a Cougars defense led LB Daiyan Henley, who leads the team with 44 tackles, 9 1/2 tackles for loss, four sacks and two forced fumbles.
USC leads the nation in interceptions with 12 and Washington State leads the Pac-12 in tackles for loss (44) and ranks second in sacks (18).
The Trojans are 6-1 in its past seven home games against Washington State with hopes of extending their win streak Saturday night in Los Angeles.
