These links have no fumbling issues.
- Arizona RB Nic Grigsby is trying to solve his fumbling issues so he can hold onto his starting job.
- Arizona State can't run the football and here's a big reason why the passing game hasn't compensated.
- Two California players have been arrested on suspicion of robbery. Get a feeling that won't make things easier for Jeff Tedford this week, though it might distract from the endless question about the quarterback situation. This, however, is a fairly compelling argument that it's time to commit to Kevin Riley as the starter over Nate Longshore.
- Oregon can run; Arizona State can't. That's good for the Ducks, bad for the Sun Devils.
- Oregon State's offensive line takes a hit... a good one: Tavita Thompson returns.
- UCLA running back Kahlil Bell is playing through pain, but the Bruins offensive and defensive lines are just banged up. Cal center Alex Mack vs. UCLA defensive tackle Brigham Harwell is an intriguing matchup.
- It's not always easy dealing with parents for USC coach Pete Carroll.
- Are Notre Dame fans happy that Tyrone Willingham has failed at Washington? Short answer: Yes.
- And here's a great look at Football Futile States.
