From Pullman -- Take a deep breath, make another pot of coffee. This is just the second out of three straight Saturdays you must endure without a Washington State University football game. I know, it's hard on me too. What to do with your Saturday? There are a few good games on this weekend (OK, just the Florida State-Miami game) or perhaps it's time to take a break. Instead of football, watch birds. Read a book rather than a box score. Or, if you're like me, there's nothing you'd rather do with your weekend than devour all the Pac-12 news you can find. But don't be too ravenous; you might get a tummy ache.
Come, friend. Links await after the jump.
The Cougars won their exhibition game against Central Washington today ... But have some work to do on the gridiron ... As if one Oregon wasn't enough ... USC made short work of Oregon State ... The Beavers' aerial attack has been grounded.
Colorado: The beat up Bruins could provide the Buffaloes with a big opportunity.
Oregon: The Ducks return to the site of their last road loss.
Stanford: There's a cast of characters on the Cardinal offensive line.
UCLA: At least Noel Mazzone's pets like him.
Utah: A week off means it's time to hit the road for the Utah coaches.
Washington: It's a good time for the Huskies to take a week off.
Bonus Link: A special treat on this blasé college football Saturday. Because you've been good this week with nary a snarky comment nor untoward email, I present an article that will bring a tear to your eye unless you aren't human, or at least, a Mariners fan. After reading, watch this for extra goosebumps.
