The MBOC is back after our Bye week last week, a mandatory break that Vegas makes us take each year because they need a chance to win back some of their money from people who are winning cash by reading the Money Bet of the Century.
Unfortunately, two weeks ago, we missed the Kansas State game by 1 point. True, K-State went on to win the game but---in this case---it was just one point shy of hitting its mark.
This week, we'll pick a game that will make up for that unfortunate miss.
This game doesn't fall far from the MBOC's Corporate Headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The game is an epic battle between Oregon State vs. Washington.
I'll never forget this same game in 2000. Oregon State came marching up to Husky Stadium looking like the best team in the country.Who would have knownn that the team, led by Dennis Erickson (who has coached almost every single college team in the country) would graduate so many players to the NFL. On that roster were all-star recievers TJ Houshmandzadeh, Chad 'Ocho Cinco' Johnson and running back Steven Jackson. A true all star cast.

This year, the Huskies will be no match for the (very similarly) undefeated Beavs....and they aren't going to be playing a #11 ranked Husky Team (who is fresh off an ass-whooping last week down in Tucson where they lost to the Arizona Wildcats 52-17)

Oregon State comes into this game being a prolific passing offense (currently #15 in the country, with an average 310 passing yards per game). Pleasanton, California's Sophomore QB Sean Mannion is looking wholesome and fresh this season (subtle nod to Safeway, whose corporate headquarters are also in Pleasanton, CA) with 1358 yards and 7 TDs. His primary target, who the MBOC predicts will have 2 touchdowns today, will be Markus Wheaton. So far Markus has had a great year, catching 6 TD passes for 654 yards. Turncoat Desmond Trufant (whose much more well known brother, Marcus Trufant attended Washington State University and went on to an illustrious career in the NFL) will have to have a game and coordinate a defensive shutdown of the Mannion/Wheaton.
But it won't be enough to replicate a 2000 victory for UW......the line on this game is Oregon State by 3.5....and they'll post up a 10 point victory in Seattle!!!!!! Now go lay a bet (and don't forget to vote in the upper right hand corner)
