Halftime reports: Can ASU, WSU notch upsets?

Only one Pac-10 lead at the break, and USC certainly doesn't look good.

Nebraska 28, Washington 14: The story here is Jake Locker, only not in a positive way. Locker is 2-for-10 for 20 yards with an interception at halftime. The Cornhuskers have outgained the Huskies 245 to 123. The Huskies' defense looks overwhelmed.

USC 13, Minnesota 7: No different than USC's first two games. The Trojans look like the superior team, but they are just sloppy, sloppy, sloppy. Trojans have five penalties for 42 yards. Minnesota? Zero for zero.

Wisconsin 13, Arizona State 10: Wisconsin is the passing team, the Sun Devils the running team. Who knew? Late touchdown gives Badgers the lead, and a 95-yard kickoff return proves worthless because Kyle Middlebrooks was tackled at the 1-yard line as time expired. Still, the Sun Devils have been impressive. But can they keep it up in the second half?

Washington State 14, SMU 14: The Cougars are putting up a competitive performance. Do they have enough to grab an upset? And if not, is being competitive enough to push this team forward in a positive way? And is it enough for the Cougs fans?
