Once upon a time, and a very good time it was, there was a moocow coming down along the road.
- It appears that Arizona will be without star receiver Juron Criner at Oklahoma State, which is not good.
- Missouri will start an inexperienced quarterback at Arizona State. The Sun Devils are hoping to beat a ranked team for the first time since 2007.
- California didn't get its kicks in the season opener. The Bears will be down a receiver at Colorado.
- Colorado wide receiver Toney Clemons and coach Jon Embree try to get on the same page. The quarterback of the future looks good.
- It's uncertain if Oregon running back Kenjon Barner will play against Nevada, which has a pistol offense that will challenge the Ducks.
- Is quarterback Ryan Katz going to be Oregon State's scapegoat? Trying to make the special teams special.
- Stanford is just LOADED at tight end. Previewing the Cardinal's visit to Duke.
- UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel blows his top at practice. Quarterback Kevin Prince's status remains uncertain.
- USC wideout Robert Woods finds that catching 17 passes has its downside. Some notes, including a look at the uncertain running back situation.
- Utah is glad to get a starting offensive tackle back. There could be more sharing in the backfield.
- Washington's star last week was a kicker. Running back Chris Polk is getting better.
- Washington State quarterback Marshall Lobbestael gets a second act.
- Jon Wilner on expansion madness.
- Why are SEC lines so much bigger? Three words: Biscuits and gravy.
