Another gameday post

COUGARS

FROM SALEM -- We're currently sitting in our hotel, watching SportsCenter and eating a double bacon cheeseburger from Sonic Drive-In. If Mike Riley could get In-N-Out to build a restaurant in Corvallis, I'd have stayed there. Anyway, here we go with a rundown of today's Pac-12 action.

...

First, a reminder that we'll hold our pregame chat at 1 p.m. (earlier this time, and hopefully a little smoother than last week's internet disaster). ... We'll start where we usually start -- the newspaper. Here's our game advance and our 2-minute drill with some keys to a possible WSU victory (and in the interest of thorough reporting, we will remind you that WSU and OSU kick off at 3 p.m. today on the Pac-12 Networks). ... Howie Stalwick previews the game in the Kitsap Sun. ... Bud Withers has this preview box in the Seattle Times. ... CougCenter asks some questions and gets some answers from someone familiar with Oregon State, and examines Connor Halliday's rise to become WSU's starting quarterback. ... From Oregon State: here's a preview of the game from the Beavers' perspective. ... The game is going to be a sellout and could be the largest crowd in Reser Stadium history. ... 

There are three other Pac-12 games today ...

Arizona (3-2, 0-2 Pac-12) at Stanford (3-1, 1-1 Pac-12), 3 p.m., FOX -- The Cardinal wants to take football back in time, while Arizona would prefer to play a little faster.

UCLA (4-1, 1-1 Pac-12) at California (1-4, 0-2 Pac-12), 7 p.m., Pac-12 Networks -- Here's a preview from the Orange County Register. Needless to say, Cal kind of really needs this one pretty bad. A Bears running back should come to the fore tonight.

Washington (3-1, 1-0 Pac-12) at Oregon (5-0, 2-0 Pac-12), 7:30 p.m., ESPN -- Washington wants to hang around in the second half for once against the Ducks. Here's a preview from the Oregon side.

All for now. We'll be back later from Reser Stadium.
