FROM PULLMAN — Another gameday has arrived in the Palouse, where the weather is supposed to deteriorate a bit from what it was today. It'll be dark by the time this one kicks off, anyway. Brighten up with some links.
– Our advance of today's game focuses on the number of freshmen the Cougars might play this season (and tonight).
– Here's our 2-minute drill with keys to a possible WSU victory.
– Here's a preview of the game from Vandal Nation.
Elsewhere in the Pac-12 …
Idaho State at Washington, 12 p.m., Pac-12 Networks — It should be a pretty easy day for the Huskies' running back. And for the rest of the team.
Utah State at USC, 12:30 p.m., ABC/ESPN2 — A former USC fan plays quarterback for Utah State. The Trojans aren't looking past the Aggies.
Arizona State at Stanford, 4 p.m., FOX — The game of the day. This will be Stanford's first real test of its season. ASU is potent, and its quarterback is a big reason for that.
Oregon State at San Diego State, 4:30 p.m., CBS Sports Network — It could be a big day for the Beavers' passing offense.
Utah at BYU, 7:15 p.m., ESPN2/WatchESPN — Utah's defense says it's ready to face BYU. This is the ninth meeting between the teams' coaches.
New Mexico State at UCLA, 7:30 p.m., Pac-12 Networks — The Bruins don't want to focus on how heavily favored they are in this game.
Idaho at Washington State, 7:30 p.m., Pac-12 Networks
That's all for now. We'll have our usual gameday chat at 6:30 p.m., one hour before kickoff.
