The Jaguars will be playing their second game in as many nights after losing 117-72 to Gonzaga tonight. ... Now for the Forrest news. The Washington State punter is one of two Pac-10 punters to survive the Ray Guy Award cut and be named a semifinalist, of which there are 10. You can read more about it here....
