Happy Friday! The Pac-10 will be undefeated today -- guaranteed.
- Former Arizona State quarterbacks Jake Plummer and Mark Malone talk about leading the Sun Devils to upsets over top-five teams. It's been a while since Arizona State won a big, statement-making game. Some junior college transfers and others will bolster the Sun Devils depth, but running back Keegan Herring won't play.
- Arizona senses that UCLA, with its ragtag offensive line, is the perfect opponent on which to unleash a pass rush (Is that an oil painting of Bruins quarterback Kevin Craft or a photo?). Wide receiver Mike Thomas is closing in on history.
- California's left tackle Mike Tepper could be out until November. Notes from the scout scrimmage.
- More perspective on Oregon's quarterback injuries -- it's not the spread offense's fault. And here. And what's up with wide receiver Jaison Williams, who's still battling the drop-sies?
- Who is Oregon State's leading receiver? The answer might surprise you.
- Hey, whatever happened to Stanford wideout Richard Sherman? He might get Andrew Luck-y, though Tavita Pritchard will start. Jon Wilner thinks Stanford is in trouble against San Jose State. Or not.
- UCLA cornerback Alterraun Verner says his confidence is not shaken after a poor performance vs. BYU. Steve Sloan steps in at MLB. The pass blocking has been good, but the run blocking, not so much.
- USC coach Pete Carroll uses Shareece Wright situation to implore his players to avoid trouble. Still, no word on any penalty for Wright after he was charged with resisting arrest.
- Steve Kelly looks at Washington's new athletic director. The Huskies kicking job is up for grabs. And the Huskies freshmen need to start growing up.
- Washington State is scrambling with lineup changes with Portland State coming to town and must deal with the unfamiliar territory of being on upset alert.
