Big day for WSU


Lots of WSU stuff today, with basketball previews and a pretty big football game on Saturday.

Glenn Kasses worked on both, with his basketball preview page running today. Glenn had an overview story of the team and the upcoming season, along with WSU's schedule, the Pac-10 preview and three players to keep an eye on.

In football, Cougar coach Bill Doba really want that bowl-clinching seventh win this week, not in next Saturday's Apple Cup. Going into a rivalry game with a possible bowl berth on the line for both schools isn't Doba's idea of a good week.

Glenn also his Pac-10 notebook in today's paper and more Coug information – a lot more – on his blog.

There are some similarities between WSU and this week's opponent, ASU, as Craig Smith's Seattle Times' story highlights. There is also this News Tribune piece by Todd Milles' on the Sun Devils starting running back, who began the season so far down the depth chart he couldn't see the top.
