If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.
- Why is Air Zona grounded? Here are five reasons. As for TE Rob Gronkowski, there's "a decent chance he could play some type of role" against Iowa, Mike Stoops told the Arizona Daily Star. Oh, by the way, Stoops' Iowa roots couldn't be deeper.
- Meet Louisiana-Monroe, Arizona State's visitor Saturday.
- California turns its attention to a visit to Minnesota.
- Oregon feels relief because, as Gertrude Stein said, a win is a win is a win. Utah, the Ducks opponent Saturday, has some issues of its own.
- A gritty win on the road against an veteran, rising UNLV team was good for Oregon State, but the Beavers have some bad memories from playing Cincinnati.
- Grading Stanford, which was great in the first half not so good in the second at Wake Forest.
- The LA Times said true freshman quarterback Richard Brehaut, not Kevin Craft, is likely to start against Kansas State with Kevin Prince out. Grading the win at Tennessee.
- USC quarterback Matt Barkley is nursing a sore shoulder and safety Taylor Mays a sprained knee.
- Washington, riding a 1-game winning streak, turns its attention to USC. FYI... there's some familiarity between the coaching staffs.
- On tape, Washington State's loss to Hawaii was even uglier than it was live, and as many as four more starters are injured.
