New Year’s links from WSU


A new year is upon us, which means … we're going to pass along our morning links as we always do. Read on.

On the blog yesterday, we recapped WSU's year in sports by handing out a few end-of-year honors. And that's all there is to pass along on the WSU front. 

In Pac-12 basketball news … Arizona's newest in-conference rival might very well be Colorado. … Here's a preview of the Pac-12 basketball season from the Salt Lake Tribune. … Oregon State bounced back from a bad loss to Towson with an 84-59 win over Texas Pan-American. … Oregon remains unbeaten at home after beating Nevada 56-43.

In Pac-12 football news … USC finished its disappointing season in most disappointing fashion: with a 21-7 loss to Georgia Tech in the Sun Bowl. One of the Trojans' top receivers is leaving school to enter the NFL draft. … Stanford will try to rectify the Pac-12's bowl season misgivings when it faces Wisconsin in today's Rose Bowl game (2 p.m., ESPN). … Chip Kelly's name has come up in relation to more than one NFL coaching searches. Here's a fun Fiesta Bowl column by John Canzano. Kelly fielded some interesting questions at media day.

That's all we have to link today. Happy New Year.
