Links on the day of the game

COUGARS

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 ESPN.com. ... 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.
