So, if the Beers beat Detroit and Denver beats Atlanta in the American Southwestern Division East Northern, then Milwaukee goes to the Denslow Cup, unless Baltimore can upset Buffalo and Charlotte ties Toronto, then Oakland would play L.A. and Pittsburgh in a blind-choice round-robin. And if no clear winner emerges from all of this, the two-man sack race will be held on consecutive Sundays until a champion can be crowned.
- Rich Rodriguez's system is working, but he'd like to see more explosive plays. Ka'Deem Carey picks up a midseason honor.
- ASU fans are getting excited about tonight's game (video). Plenty at stake tonight for the Sun Devils.
- Despite the timing, the Big Game is still very critical for Cal and Stanford. A quiet Avery Sebastian lets his play do the talking for him.
- Colorado's defense looking forward to the challenge of playing USC.
- Oregon special teams looking for more consistency. Thomas Tyner mum on his decision to de-commit from the Ducks. UPDATE: Brandon Oliver reports that Tyner is once again an Oregon commit.
- Oregon State looking for its best start ever. Are the Beavers now in play for Tyner?
- Stanford special teams coach Pete Alamar returns to Cal without any hard feelings.
- Johnathan Franklin could use a breather in the bye week, but he'd rather not. Noel Mazzone tossed Utah a changeup by slowing things down.
- USC's passing woes start with the protection. Teammates are talking about the play of Josh Shaw.
- Utah punter Sean Sellwood is staying busy. The Utes had higher expectations for this year.
- Bob Condotta offers up a position-by-position midseason review of the Huskies. Washington's offense is lagging behind the defense.
