FROM SAN JOSE — It's a long travel day, but we still have some links for you to digest as you begin your Sunday morning. And though yesterday's game resulted in a loss, it was probably a little more encouraging than all the others. Read on.
We have our usual game coverage in today's newspaper. We'll start with our game story, and add our notebook, keys to the game and scoring summary. On the blog, you'll find plenty of video (I'm not going to link it all) plus our transcript of Mike Leach's postgame comments and our capsulated look at the game. … Bud Withers had this column, a game story and a 2-minute drill. … Howie Stalwick had this notebook in the Kitsap Sun. … From Stanford: This effort was good enough, but barely. Jeff Tuel put a scare into the Cardinal.
Around the Pac-12 …
Arizona 39, USC 36 — A wild day in the Pac-12 was highlighted by this upset, which ended with a failed USC Hail Mary. USC's star receiver doesn't care about a Pac-12 record he set, as the Trojans' “dream season” is heading south quickly.
Oregon 70, Colorado 14 — Oregon probably got better competition in its spring game. Actually, that's a silly thing to say — there's no “probably” about it. Colorado can't go to a bowl game now, which, I mean, I guess three or four people still thought was possible.
That's all for now.
