- Arizona State may get some help on the defensive line from a true freshman, and they may need him based on this practice notebook.
- C.J. Anderson is stepping up at running back for California. Some early Bears impressions.
- The Colorado quarterback competition is a wide-open, three-man race. This talented freshman corner is trying to get past a bad run on Twitter.
- Previewing the Oregon running backs. This juco transfer looks ready to help the Ducks' O-line right now.
- Oregon State backup quarterback Cody Vaz is pushing for playing time. A Beavers defensive lineman is juicing.
- This Stanford quarterback is back from his mission. The freshmen make an early impression.
- It seems like UCLA's players are warming up to new coach Jim Mora. More on the minor Mora controversy. The Bruins are thin on the O-line.

- The running backs and defense looked good during Utah's scrimmage. Some scrimmage highlights.
- Washington is saddened by Deontae Cooper's latest knee injury. The Huskies need to protect quarterback Keith Price (and there's some bad news with a DE).
