Washington State's win over Arizona State on Saturday was its sixth of the season.

We've got plenty of coverage from the game, including our game story, notebook, column from John Blanchette and a scoring summary. Don't miss this photo gallery of Tyler Tjomsland's best shots from the game. We filled the blog with postgame notes, stats, and videos of Mike Leach, Luke Falk, Jamal Morrow and Jeremiah Allison, Gabe Marks and Gunnar Eklund, and Marcellus Pippins and Parker Henry.

Elsewhere, Jeff Nusser has a game recap and passes along a celebratory video taken by a player's family. Stefanie Loh wrote about the game for the Seattle Times and Matt Calkins has a column. Leach had one parting shot for ASU. Doug Haller and Paola Boivin provide the ASU perspective on the game.

Washington came close but couldn't finish the job against No. 13 Utah, a team that had never beaten the Huskies before. … Christian McCaffrey and Stanford made short work of Colorado. … Oregon State couldn't put a point on the board against UCLA, but the Bruins put up enough for two teams. … Oregon beat California, but is it enough to restore faith in the Ducks? … USC outlasted Arizona in a surprisingly close game.
