The Cougars improved to 2-1 in conference play on Saturday afternoon, and 4-2 overall. Connor Halliday bounced back from the Stanford game by throwing over halfway to 1,000-yards in a single game, 521 to be exact.

Here's our story on the game... a couple of defensive linemen who have been contributors for awhile still managed to have breakout performances ... over on Sportslink we've got postgame  video ... and here's a column on Halliday's performance from the indefatigable Bud Withers.

But that's not all that happened on Saturday afternoon. Follow the jump for links from around the conference.
