Oregon

He’s still the best athlete in the world – former Duck Ashton Eaton won his second straight gold medal in the decathlon Thursday night.

Washington

Eaton wasn’t the only Pac-12 alum in the field, as former Husky Jeremy Taiwo finished 11th in the decathlon, capping the event with a second-place finish in the 1,500.

USC

Congrats to former Woman of Troy Dalilah Muhammad for winning gold in the 400m hurdles, and props to Andre De Grasse for taking silver in the 200-meter final, second only to the best to ever do it in sprinting history. Also, do you need someone to root for in the women’s golf competition in Rio? Look no further than USC golfer Tiffany Chan, featured here by our very own Alex Espinoza, who has been doing a bang-up job with his Olympics coverage.

Arizona

Graham Bosch of Cronkite News profiles former Arizona Wildcat Ben Kanute, who is competing in his first Olympic triathlon this year.

Washington State

In this video recapping the day that was at training camp in Pullman, our Mike Yam, Curtis Conway and Glenn Parker discuss Washington State trying to build upon the success of the 2015 season.

UCLA

Nick Bromberg of Yahoo Sports has UCLA at No. 14 in the Dr. Saturday preseason top 25, right ahead of Oregon, Washington and USC.

Arizona State

Ted Miller puts on his CSI cap and gives us a “forensic review” of the Arizona State quarterback competition. It’s down to two main competitors – Manny Wilkins and Brady White.

Oregon State

Chantel Jennings is of the opinion that wide receiver Victor Bolden has the most to prove for Oregon State football this year.

Colorado

Brian Howell features Colorado wide receiver Devin Ross in this article. Slot? Outside? He might line up in both spots for Sefo Liufau and the offense.

Stanford

Tom FitzGerald features new Stanford football starting center Jesse Burkett, who replaces the retired Graham Shuler. Apparently Burkett has played very well in camp.

Utah

Kyle Goon reports that Utah men’s basketball will hire Chris Jones as its director of basketball operations. Jones played at Utah for two seasons (1993-94) under the watchful eye of Rick Majerus and has been on staff twice before for the Runnin’ Utes.

California

Former Cal wide receiver Marvin Jones chronicles his route to the Detroit Lions in this very fun and insightful piece for The Players’ Tribune.
