I'm in Tucson for Oregon State's visit to Arizona, while Kevin is at CenturyLink Field to watch Oregon and Washington State, picking up the second half of a Seattle twin bill.

Here's a glance at the day's other two games.

Arizona State (3-1, 1-0) at California (1-3, 0-1) 4 p.m., FX: Arizona State is looking for a road win and legitimacy as a potentially nationally ranked team, while California just needs a win. The Bears lead the series 17-14, including victories in eight of the past nine meetings. Last season, the Bears beat the Sun Devils in a 47-38 shootout in Tempe. Cal won the last meeting in Berkeley, downing ASU 50-17 in 2010. Arizona State hasn't won in Berkeley since 1997. Sun Devils sophomore quarterback Taylor Kelly leads the Pac-12, and is ninth in the FBS, with a 182.2 passing efficiency rating while guiding the Sun Devils to 41.2 points per game.

UCLA (3-1, 0-1) at Colorado (1-3, 1-0) 6 p.m., Pac-12 Network: UCLA is looking to bounce back after a home loss to Oregon State knocked it out of the national rankings, while Colorado is trying to keep momentum going after shocking Washington State last weekend. UCLA leads the series 5-2, including a 45-6 win last year. Colorado did win the two previous meetings before it joined the Pac-12, winning 16-14 in 2003 and 31-17 in 2002. Colorado overcame a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit to nip Washington State, 35-34, as the Buffaloes won their first conference opener since upsetting No. 3 Oklahoma at Folsom Field in 2007. The win marked the largest rally from a fourth-quarter deficit on the road in program history. UCLA junior receiver Shaquelle Evans and Colorado freshman receiver Nelson Spruce logged their first career 100-yard receiving games last week. Evans hauled in six passes for 148 yards and a touchdown. Spruce caught eight passes for 103 yards and a touchdown, and seven of his eight receptions were good for first downs.
