Colorado

Tad Boyle has his Colorado Buffaloes are ranked as high as they've been in four decades, so of course center Josh Scott doesn't remember the last time they've been ranked this high. 

USC

An interesting discussion: How will Steve Sarkisian's hybrid-style offense go over in Trojan land, where a pro-style attack has been the past model and a successful one at that? Is winning all that matters? 

Washington State

Here's a Q&A with WSU athletic director Bill Moos, who said the Apple Cup will be moved to Saturday. He also spoke about the Cougars' New Mexico Bowl experience and the basketball team's visit to Arizona. 

Arizona

The Delaware County Daily Times' Christopher A. Vito visited Tucson and wrote a feature on Arizona freshman Rondae Hollis-Jefferson's drive to succeed. Also, Hollis-Jefferson's coach Sean Miller admitted he can't watch too much basketball. It makes him nervous about his Wildcats

Utah

Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak digs his three-man center rotation of Dallin Bachynski, Jeremy Olsen and Marko Kovacevic. It's Olsen who made the most of his first career start this weekend.
