Tuesday morning Pac-12 links

We have a tradition around here on Tuesday mornings. Actually, we have it every morning. It's the tradition of collecting stories from around the Pac-12 conference and consolidating them into a links post.

Take part in our tradition after the jump.

-- We had our weekly press conference with players and coaches yesterday, and asked a few questions about the last time the Cougars played in Utah. That game was unforgettable for Gunnar Eklund, and not in a good way, but he'll have a chance to make some positive memories in Rice-Eccles Stadium this weekend.

-- We also have video and a transcription of coach Mike Leach's remarks yesterday.

-- The Utah game notes came out yesterday.

-- We take a First Look at the Utes.

-- Did some loser throw a bottle at UO players during Saturday's game? Unfortunately, that appears to be the case.

-- We also flashed back to last week and handed out grades for the Oregon game.

-- Speaking of Oregon, CougCenter's Zane Murfitt has an interactive graphic illustrating WSU's defensive performance.

-- If you like spending $300 for an extra night at a Pullman hotel or just love watching your local beat writer file minutes before deadline, you're in luck! Against California the Cougars will, once again, be kicking off at 7:30 p.m.

-- Utah had a pair of players earn Pac-12 Player of the Week honors because of their win over Michigan.

-- A highly-regarded quarterback recruit signed a financial aid agreement with Washington.

-- Arizona has been a second-half team and it's paid off.

-- Arizona State needs to bring the heat to beat UCLA.

-- California's loss to Arizona will be tough to forget.

-- Oregon State's ex-defensive coordinator has some words of advice.

-- In-game adjustments have helped Oregon State succeed.

-- Myles Jack hasn't gotten over UCLA's last loss to Arizona State.

-- USC tries to find positives in the Boston College game. Good thing they've had an extra week to look.
