Oregon State is rolling; Arizona and Stanford are brawling

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

Any possibility that Washington State might show up inspired and challenge homestanding Oregon State disappeared quickly. It's 14-0 Beavers with eight minutes left in the first and the Cougars look like a FCS team.

Meanwhile, there's a really good game going on in Stanford, but, of course, we can't watch it because Stanford is too big to care about TV (the school wouldn't adjust its homecoming pans to accommodate TV).

Stanford will, however, offer a money-back guarantee on its tickets to try to fill its mostly empty stadium.

Sure TV couldn't help there.

Anyway... just looking at the numbers, the Cardinal is dominating statistically, leading the total yardage tally late in the third quarter 368 to 197, but the score is tied at 17-17.

The obvious explanation is that Arizona is winning the turnover battle 2-0, and Stanford quarterback Tavita Pritchard's interception was returned 75 yards for a TD by Nate Ness.

Really surprised that the Wildcats haven't been able to exploit the Stanford secondary.

Wish this one was on TV because OSU-WSU doesn't look like it's going to be very interesting.
