Links, links, links.

  • Arizona was sluggish against Northern Arizona, and it needs to get healthy with the schedule getting tougher.

  • Louisiana-Monroe won't be a gimme for Arizona State.

  • California was efficient in dispatching Eastern Washington.

  • It wasn't pretty but Oregon beat Purdue and that feels good.

  • Oregon State kicker Justin Kahut has redeemed himself before.

  • Jobbed by officials or not -- that seems to be standard on the road these days -- Stanford fell apart in the second half.

  • UCLA's defense dominated Tennessee.

  • Matt Barkley proved himself in USC's win at Ohio State. Some interesting observations. I have another: An All-American center comes in handy on those fourth-and-1 QB sneaks, eh?

  • Jake Locker was sharp while Washington ended its 15-game losing streak.

  • Washington State looked slow while taking a whipping from Hawaii.
