Gameday links from San Jose


FROM SAN JOSE — Today, we have an anomaly: six games featuring Pac-12 team vs. Pac-12 team. And they're all on a Saturday. What a concept. Read on.

We have our usual advance items in today's newspaper, from our game advance, to our keys to to a possible WSU victory. And on the blog last night, we posted a question-and-answer session with a Stanford beat writer. … Bud Withers has this preview box in the Seattle Times. … Howie Stalwick has this advance in the Kitsap Sun. … From Stanford: The Cardinal are finding ways to use their backup quarterback. … A Stanford freshman is making an impact at cornerback.

Today's Pac-12 action … 

UCLA (5-2, 2-2 Pac-12) at Arizona State (5-2, 3-1), 12 p.m., FX — Scouting the game from an Arizona State perspective. UCLA is trying to draw a line in the sand.

Colorado (1-6, 1-3) at Oregon (7-0, 4-0), 12 p.m., Pac-12 Network — The Oregonian previews the game. Colorado's changing offensive system might help the Buffs, but not this week.

USC (6-1, 4-1) at Arizona (4-3, 1-3), 12:30 p.m., ABC/ESPN2 — This game could either really help or really hurt the Trojans. Arizona is a bit of a long shot in this one.

California (3-5, 2-3) at Utah (2-5, 0-4), 6:45 p.m., Pac-12 Network — Isi Sofele is trying to spark Cal's run game again. Cal needs to win. Badly. It's one game at a time for Utah.

Oregon State (6-0, 4-0) at Washington (3-4, 1-3), 7:15 p.m., Pac-12 Network — Washington is trying to finish strong. The Huskies might be reeling, but they're a different team at home. The two teams are moving in different directions.

We'll have our usual pre-game chat today at 2 p.m.
