WSU heads for Berkeley


It’s a travel day for Washington State. The Cougars will arrive in the Bay Area this afternoon, have a short practice at Memorial Stadium and then play the Cal Bears tomorrow. We have pretty much the same itinerary, without the practice or playing part. Read on.


• Washington State: Talk about a light day. The only story we could find was our feature on Jahvid Best. Sorry.

• Around the Pac-10: Buster Sports’ Nick Daschel rates the Pac-10 coaches again this week. … He also picks the games. …Washington: If you’re interested in Nick Holt’s view of the Arizona State ending, you can find it here. … The Times’ Steve Kelley debates whether Jake Locker should stay or go to the NFL. There doesn’t seem to be much debate when $25 million is on the line. … Another Devin Aguilar feature, this one from Todd Milles in the News Tribune. … Oregon State: Not all the players in Southern California were recruited by Southern California. … Oregon: When the Ducks had an injury at safety, a redshirt freshman stepped up. … Cal: We wrote about the star this morning. Here’s a story about the more than capable backup. … The Bears don’t think they have been putting enough pressure on the quarterback. They may find the cure Saturday. … Stanford: When you are a tight end for the Cardinal, first and foremost, you have to run block. Now and then Jim Dray catches touchdown passes. … USC: Big game, big lineup change. Trojans’ All-American center Kristofer O’Dowd is out, and he’s not injured. …UCLA: The Bruins’ pass defense will be tested this week. … Arizona State: Ever since Dennis Erickson has arrived in Tempe, the offensive line has struggled. Not so much anymore. … Arizona: A walk-on is now handling the kickoff chores for the Wildcats.


• That’s it for this morning. We are traveling today, so we’ll post our game day items when we can. Until then …
