From Pullman -- Lots of great story lines out of yesterday's action, with ASU narrowly avoiding an upset to keep command of the Pac-12 South. While Washington State didn't play because of their bye week, it was still a Saturday chock-full of west-coast college football, one in which just a single home team wonUtah coll. Check out our links from those games after the jump.


USC 62, Cal 28

USC utilized a potent ground game to dispatch the Golden Bears ... But the Trojans have a much sterner test before they can lay claim to Northern California. ... They'll have the help of some young backs who have run into the spotlight ... The Bears are doing their best to stay poised.

Arizona State 20, Utah 19

Utah collapsed in the fourth quarter of Saturday's loss ... The Sun Devils still have not lost to the Utes since Gerald Ford was president ... Utah's defense was great ... Until it wasn't ... Robert Nelson feels right at home in Tempe.

Colorado 7, Washington 59

Washington demolished Colorado on Saturday ... But the Buffaloes are getting a mature performance out of their freshman quarterback from Tacoma ... The contest was quickly over.

UCLA 31, Arizona 26

The Wildcats comeback attempt fell short against the visiting Bruins ... UCLA's freshman from Bellevue is a Jack of all trades ... The Bruins were still impressed by Arizona's star at running back.
