A Pac-10 team in the top 5 nationally in scoring defense? No, it is not USC.

Though the offensive production is not translating to wins, Arizona State has still got to be pleased with its playmakers.

I know this is not football-related, but check out which sports California is discontinuing. This is a pretty big deal when you consider that Cal finished ninth in last year’s Learfield Sports Directors Cup competition.

UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel: “We apologized to their mothers.”

Chip Kelly’s work is being recognized by Oregon, and he has received a contract extension.

Oregon State is the only team in the nation yet to lose a turnover.

Southern California fullback Stanley Havili has opted to recall last year’s loss against Washington in order to prepare himself for his rematch against the Huskies.

What does Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh believe is the ultimate form of respect?

Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian believes USC running back Dillon Baxter will break loose against his Huskies this weekend. (The only thing I took away from this article, really, was that Baxter scored 79 touchdowns as a senior in high school; 50 rushing, 26 passing, one receiving, and two on defense.)

Should Washington State change its game plan for UCLA now that the Bruins have a running game?
