Day-before-Washington links

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — Good news: only three more days without cable and wired Internet. Bad news: Three more days without cable and wired Internet. Ah, the joys of moving. Anyway, we at least have a company-issued MiFi card to get us through these oh-so-trying times, and friends kind enough to let us watch BCS bowl games at their house. So there is that. Anyway, read on for links.

Day after Idaho State

COUGARS

The Washington State men's basketball team did what everyone thought it would do yesterday. It won. So, too, did the WSU women's team, though in far more surprising fashion. We have links related to both, and more. Read on.

Pac-12 picks, the final edition

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — Our weekly picks column in the newspaper ended last weekend with the final full slate of Pac-12 games. But since two more games involving conference teams remain until the bowl season, we'll go ahead and forecast those real quick for the record.

UCLA at Stanford (Pac-12 championship game, 5 p.m. Friday on FOX), Stanford by 8.5 — I'd expect more of a fight from UCLA this time around, but the result should be the same as it was last week. Cardinal to the Rose Bowl. Stanford 28-21.

Nicholls State at Oregon State (11:30 a.m. Saturday, Pac-12 Networks), no line — Maybe the Beavers couldn't keep up with the Ducks last week because they were looking ahead to this showdown. OSU 49-10.

Season record: 68-21 straight up, 43-37 against the spread
