First Place At Stake

Download Complete Release


First Place at Stake in the Northwest. . . Co-leaders CALIFORNIA and STANFORD travel to the Northwest where WASHINGTON looks to keep pace in the Pac-12 race. Washington has had recent success against the Bay Area schools in Seattle, posting a 7-3 mark against California and a record of 8-2 against Stanford over the last 10 years ... All three teams enter this week's play riding three-game winning streaks.

Duck Soup. . . OREGON is coming off its second road sweep of the Arizona schools in 34 years and has now won seven of its last nine games. Since the Wildcats and Sun Devils joined the league in 1978-79, Oregon's other sweep came during the 2006-07 season ... Having played four of its six Pac-12 games this season on the road, the Ducks have been impressive in posting a 3-1 road record in league play. Meanwhile, the other 11 Pac-12 teams have managed a combined 6-22 record on the road in league play.

Pac-12 Coaching Milestone. . . When Washington coach Lorenzo Romar picks up his next league win, he'll join California coach Mike Montgomery (252 league wins) and UCLA's Ben Howland (100) with 100 conference victories each. The last time three or more coaches had 100 league wins at the same time? It was 1964 - OSU's Slats Gill (276), UCLA's John Wooden (171) and USC's Forrest Twogood (121).
