Gameday links from Utah

COUGARS

FROM SALT LAKE CITY — A whirlwind week continues here in Salt Lake, where the Cougars face Utah this afternoon in a 12 p.m. game on the Pac-12 Networks (that's 1 p.m. for all you folks in the Mountain time zone). Read on for our usual assortment of links and such.


First, a reminder that we'll have our usual pregame chat, this one starting at 11 a.m. PT. We'll go right up to kickoff. …  In today's newspaper we had our advance of the game, as well as our 2-minute drill. … Bud Withers has this scouting report in The Seattle Times. … Howie Stalwick has this advance for the Kitsap Sun. … From Utah: The Utes are trying to turn their season around, like WSU. Defensive priorities will change this week for Utah.

There was one Pac-12 game yesterday, as Washington held off California, 21-13, in one of the ugliest displays of football this season. Or any season. Cal won't be playing in a bowl game this year.

In today's action …

Stanford (6-2, 4-1 Pac-12) at Colorado (1-7, 1-4), 11 a.m., FX — Colorado is reaching new lows. The Buffaloes are sticking with their starting quarterback. Stanford seems to have forgotten about one of its backups.

Oregon (8-0, 5-0) at Southern California (6-2, 4-2), 4 p.m., FOX — Here's a preview box from the Oregon side. De'Anthony Thomas is playing at the Coliseum for the first time as a Duck.

Arizona (5-3, 2-3) at UCLA (6-2, 3-2), 7:30 p.m., Pac-12 Network — Arizona's quarterback is ready to go. This game has some implications about it.

Arizona State (5-3, 3-2) at Oregon State (6-1, 4-1), 7:30 p.m., ESPN2 — ASU is trying to avoid another late-season collapse. Both teams are looking to get back on track.
