Morning links: Cougars win in Los Angeles

It wasn't the blowout the Cougars would have liked but WSU will take a nail-biter as long as it’s a win.

With the win the Cougars have now doubled their Pac-12 win total from last season. We'll reflect more on the game later today, but for now we have a game story to pass along, as well as postgame videos of Ernie Kent, Dexter Kernich-Drew, DaVonté Lacy and Junior Longrus. Here are a couple more game wrap-ups.

In the paper today we also have our weekly outlook, focusing naturally on WSU's upcoming Sunday game against UCLA.

-- Oregon's NCAA tournament resume got even stronger as it ended a seven-year losing streak to California.

-- Court stormings can be fun, but are they a safety hazzard?

-- Tony Parker and UCLA had an easy rout over a depleted Washington team.

-- The Pac-12 blog ranks the conference's football coaching jobs.
