IMHO Sunday: No. 10 and running towards Pasadena

Greg Katz – WeAreSC.com In my humble opinion, cardinal and gold thoughts on what I see, what I hear, and what I think. The prognosticator: I fully expect Washington to dominate Colorado in next Friday night’s Pac-12 Championship Game in Santa Clara, especially if the Huskies get ahead early on a neutral field.
