Was out late last night doing research on the USC-Ohio State game at a number of think tanks -- that's why "Pac-10 Morning" became "Pac-10 lunch."
- This will shock you: USC-Ohio State is a hot ticket, and the Coliseum is getting dressed up for the big game. LA loves its Trojans... as long as they keep winning. And, what's the latest on Beanie's foot?
- Arizona TB Nic Grigsby isn't afraid to be a momma's boy.
- Arizona State will be thin at LB this weekend versus UNLV.
- California's defense has a quiet guy and a loud guy, but both get the job done.
- The Os (Oregon) head to the Ps (Purdue) wondering which zero will disappear. George Schroeder on the Ducks' "accidental QB." (Like the redesign Register-Guard -- way easier to navigate).
- There's worry lurking within the Oregon State faithful with Hawaii coming to town. You know who could help: OG Jeremy Perry. But he's still out -- you've just got to feel for the guy. Best run blocker in the Pac-10 and an NFL talent.
- Former Stanford QB Todd Husak breaks down the Cardinal's visit to TCU. Weather could slow the passing game.
- UCLA's youngsters get their first taste of the road, and the BYU's offense will offer a big test -- watch out for this guy, too.
- Oklahoma isn't taking Jake Locker lightly. Freshman RB Chris Polk is going to have surgery.
- This is hard to believe but Washington State is favored at Baylor tonight. Here's a preview.
