Some very unfortunate news out of Stanford, where David Shaw announced that Ben Gardner is out for the season with a pectoral muscle injury. The defensive end is a fifth-year senior, meaning he’ll never play a down of college football again (though he can certainly play in the NFL).

A reporter wanted to know what Jim Mora thought about the impending Oregon-Stanford clash since his team played them both in the last two weeks, and the head honcho went on to discuss how good of a battle UCLA-Colorado is going to be.

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for the Ute quarterback, but Travis Wilson is hopeful his banged-up hand will be healed by the end of the week. Bye week came at a good time for him; Utes don’t play again until Nov. 9 against Arizona State.
