Links before heading to Auburn


FROM PULLMAN — Technically, we won't actually be in Alabama today. Just flying into Atlanta and staying the night there before heading into Auburn tomorrow. First, we have links to throw your way — including our contribution to this season's football tab. Check it out.

– Our story in today's newspaper focuses on what WSU is facing when it lines up against Auburn's defense on Saturday. We also debuted our weekly Pac-12 picks.

– Here are some notes from yesterday's practice, as well as a recap of our live chat yesterday.

– On to our football tab, which I recommend picking up in print form as well. Our main WSU story focuses on the process of building a program, which nowadays begins with facilities above all else. We also have a few WSU story lines, plus a short sidebar on River Cracraft.

– Bud Withers has more on the impending transfer of Logan Mayes, quoting his father as saying his son wants an opportunity to play more.

– Auburn is willing to let its new quarterback throw it deep. The Tigers released their depth chart yesterday.

There are two games today in the Pac-12 …

Utah State at Utah, 5 p.m., FOX Sports 1 — It's a grudge match between these in-state rivals.

USC at Hawaii, 8 p.m., CBS Sports Network — The Trojans can't afford to trip up in their season opener.

– Todd Graham wants Arizona State to cut down on penalties.

– UCLA is ready to face Nevada's pistol offense.

– Some Arizona freshmen are ready for their debuts.

– Oregon likes what it's seen from Spokane product Danny Mattingly.

– Here's some video from Corvallis of Oregon State players talking about things.

– California's freshman quarterback seems to have things under control.

– Colorado is focusing on stopping the run.
