Links on the day of the game


FROM SEATTLE — Hard to believe this is the fifth game day of the season, but here we are. In a few hours, we'll drive over to CenturyLink Field — hopefully avoiding traffic — and settle in to watch Washington State take on Oregon. For now, here are some links.

Just a reminder that we'll have a game day chat starting at 6:30 tonight and running up until kickoff. … In today's newspaper, we have this advance focusing on WSU's need to stay fundamentally sound against the Ducks. We also have our keys to the game. … Bud Withers has this preview in the Seattle Times. … Here's a preview from … Howie Stalwick has a preview of the game in the Kitsap Sun. From Oregon: the Ducks' big tight end has an interesting story.

Today's Pac-12 action …

Arizona State (3-1, 1-0 Pac-12) at California (1-3, 0-1 Pac-12) — The Sun Devils' history in Berkely isn't so great. … This is a must-win game for Jeff Tedford and the Bears.

UCLA (3-1, 0-1 Pac-12) at Colorado (1-3, 1-0 Pac-12) — It won't be easy for the Buffaloes' defense. The Bruins hope their running game takes a step in the right direction.

Oregon State (2-0, 1-0 Pac-12) at Arizona (3-1, 0-1 Pac-12) — Does Arizona have problems or issues? Or both? … It's another tough test for the Beavers, who have passed two so far.

Also: Utah is regrouping during its bye week. … Washington's defense looks brand new. … A USC cornerback is working his way back.

All for now. Check in for our chat at 6:30.
