Saturday morning Pac-12 links

From Salt Lake City — Last night we reported that backup quarterback Austin Apodaca has decided to transfer from Washington State and has left the football program … Today the basketball team will take on Utah and should be prepared for a hostile environment … The WSU women came very close to earning their first-ever win over Stanford … Here's a nice profile on WSU football (and basketball?) signee Jalen Canty … Cal suffered a tragedy yesterday when a player collapsed during conditioning … Ted Miller answers questions in his Pac-12 Mailbag … The Ducks need a win tomorrow at Arizona State to keep even the faintest postseason hope flickering … USC and UCLA are set to rumble for the second time this season.

Quarterback to leave Washington State football team

UPDATE (8:11 p.m.) — Apodaca confirmed that he has left the program, more from the quarterback after the jump.

Independent sources have told the Spokesman-Review that quarterback Austin Apodaca is no longer a member of the Washington State football program. No reason for Apodaca's departure was given.

A spokesperson for WSU said that the team does not comment on internal matters.

Apodaca, a redshirt freshman this past season, completed 21 of 42 passes for 187 yards and two touchdowns as Connor Halliday's primary backup. He originally was recruited by former WSU head coach Paul Wulff and but became the first quarterback recruited by current coach Mike Leach at WSU. A product of Silver Creek High School in Longmont, Colo., Apodaca was named All-Colorado by the Denver Post as a senior after throwing for a state-high 3,849 yards with 44 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
