FROM PULLMAN — Saturday just meant another football practice for Washington State, which bids adieu to its bye week and begins earnest preparation for Stanford. But yesterday was busy for most of the Pac-12, so read on.
We did have a couple of WSU items today, with this blog post about the arrest of men's basketball player Brett Kingma, and a recap last night of WSU's football practice.
In yesterday's Pac-12 action …
Arizona 52, Washington 17 — The Wildcats embarrassed the Huskies in the desert, also embarrassing anyone dumb enough to pick UW in this game (me).
Oregon State 21, Utah 7 — It wasn't pretty, but the Beavers won yet again, starting a season 6-0 for the first time since 1907 and earning bowl eligibility ahead of schedule. Turnovers cost the Utes.
Stanford 21, California 3 — Cardinal running back Stepfan Taylor ran wild against the Bears, who couldn't do much of anything in the Big Game.
Southern California 50, Colorado 6 — The Trojans set some records in beating the Buffaloes silly. USC didn't need long to score enough points to win.
