The morning after OSU


FROM SALEM -- We'll be boarding a flight back to Spokane later this afternoon, which means there's plenty of time to recap yesterday's game, and the rest of the Pac-12 action, with links. Whether you want them or not. Read on.


We have our usual newspaper coverage for you, with our game story, this notebook (which got cut down quite a bit due to space issues), our scoring summary and our keys to the game, and also passed along some comments from Mike Leach, some video of Gino Simone and Jeff Tuel, and our postgame recap on the blog last night. There is plenty more video to post, but unfortunately, both the OSU internet and our hotel internet were simply too slow to allow us to upload all of them in a reasonable time, so those will have to wait until later today. ... Bud Withers says it's time to face the fact that WSU is rebuilding. He has some notes, too. ... Howie Stalwick writes about Scott Crichton's dominating game, and also has this notebook. ... Here's all of the coverage from The Oregonian, if you're looking for the OSU perspective.

Elsewhere in the Pac-12 ...

Oregon 52, Washington 21 -- It was the same old, same old in this "rivalry," the Ducks rolling to their ninth consecutive win over the Huskies.

Stanford 54, Arizona 48 -- Each team tallied 617 yards of total offense in this wild shootout. Arizona had its chances to win. Josh Nunes, somewhat surprisingly, led the way for the Cardinal.

California 43, UCLA 17 -- Consider this the stunner of the weekend in the Pac-12, as the Bears shook off a 1-4 start to rout the 23rd-ranked Bruins.
