Links before heading to Auburn

COUGARS

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.
