UCLA might get cold reception at WSU


The forecast for this weekend seems to get a little worse each day. If not worse, than colder. The chance of snow or a cold rain Friday? Sixty percent. Saturday, only 20 percent, but a high of 33. Of course, that could all change, even over the course of the day today. But for now, it could be chilly on the field Saturday. Read on.


• Washington State: The Cougars received one signed basketball letter of intent yesterday and expect another one today. All the Inland Northwest LOIs are covered in this piece. … On the football front, we had this story on the bond between quarterback and receiver and our comedy choice for the day, our Pac-10 picks. We also had practice notes on this post. … Freelancer Howie Stalwick has a letter-of-intent story in the Kitsap Sun and other papers. …

• Around the Pac-10:’s Ted Miller tells us what to watch this weekend. Me, I’m watching UCLA and WSU. It’s my job. … Who is the Pac-10’s best defensive player? Paul Wulff would pick UCLA’s Brian Price, I’m sure. At least this week. … Washington: The Huskies have a go-to receiver. His name is Jermaine Kearse. He’s a little surprised himself. … Oregon State found a tight end gem in Orting. Yes, Orting. That’s in Washington if you didn’t know. … Oregon State: The biggest improvement this year for the Beavers has been at offensive line. … Oregon: The Ducks’ offense wants to start faster. … California: This Bear isn’t playing it safe, despite the position title. … Stanford: It’s time to remember the upset for the ages. Or was it the upset of the century? Whatever. … USC: Trojans’ third-down woes have caught Pete Carroll’s eye. …UCLA: The weather is on the Bruins’ minds. … They will start a bigger back this week. … Arizona State: Freshman Brock Osweiler will get his first start this week. It’s at Oregon. Starting a freshman quarterback there didn’t work too well for the Cougars, if you recall. … Arizona: How’s this for irony? The Wildcats are worried about the Wildcat.


• That’s it for this morning. We’ll be back after football practice with news and notes. Until then …
