Nick Rolovich never coached a football game against the University of Utah in his 12 years at Nevada and Hawaii, but by the time he arrived at the podium to meet with reporters Monday afternoon – some 24 hours after the Pac-12 announced its week seven pairings – the Washington State coach seemed to know what the Utes were all about.
Keys to victory for Washington State against Utah
Once again, Washington State’s beleaguered defensive secondary won’t be at full strength when the Cougars play the Utes on Saturday in the season finale at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Most Friday mornings we peruse the weekend TV schedule and highlight what we feel is the best sporting events on the docket. We will do that this morning as well. But after getting toasted a few times lately, we also think we need to add one word to each description. That word? Tentatively. Too often lately events have been pulled at the last minute, due to a positive COVID-19 test or testing protocols.
Nick Rolovich wasn't able to swing all four, but batting .250 in the Sewell household is nothing to be ashamed of either.
Kyle Smith says the moment might call for a toast.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • You know what this Christmas season lacks? Buzz. Outside of the usually unrewarded search for a PS5, the things that get folks excited this time of year seem lacking. Rivalry football games? Bowl games? Big nonconference college basketball games? Like most everything in 2020, they aren’t what they used to be.

Yep, it’s another National Signing Day, as high school football players let the world know where they are headed for college. But that only scratches the surface of what we can share today, including a hoops record and the same old, same old with the college football “playoffs.”
The 2021 recruiting cycle has come with unprecedented obstacles for college football programs all over the country. For most, the weight of those obstacles will be lifted on Wednesday – at least to some extent – when high school and junior college prospects are allowed to sign letters of intent as part of the early signing period.
There’s a good chance a handful of Washington State football players will escape the cold of Pullman for warm-weather locales like California, Arizona or Texas next week.
It often goes one of two ways for college football programs the day before the early signing period.
Over the course of the next two or three weeks, a few dozen seniors will be informing head coach Nick Rolovich and his Washington State staff of their intentions to play football for the Cougars in 2021.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • The other shoe dropped yesterday. Washington, newly minted North Division winners without ever leaving home, had to withdraw from the Pac-12 football title game. And as “tradition” demands, if by “tradition” you mean “the past few months of COVID-19-influenced rules,” Oregon, toting a two-game losing streak and a week off, ascends into its spot. What a conference.
As college football’s early signing period grows closer, Washington State’s 2021 recruiting class continues to grow smaller.
What is it? Washington State (1-2) travels to the Wasatch Range, where it will close out the regular season at Utah (2-2).
A GRIP ON SPORTS • It is a year that calls for smart and nimble leadership at all levels. Which makes it a year in which the Pac-12 enters the sporting fray with one hand tied behind its back. Maybe even both.
