Troy Wayrynen/USA TODAY Sports

Washington

Christian Caple writes that it’s tough for Washington players to ignore the College Football Playoff talk, as many expect the Dawgs to win out and nab a spot in the semifinals.

Stanford

Stanford coach David Shaw announced that running back Christian McCaffrey is questionable to play against Colorado (Associated Press). McCaffrey should be cleared to practice on Wednesday.

UCLA

Head coach Jim Mora is “hopeful” that Josh Rosen will play against Utah on Saturday, Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times notes.

California

Jeff Faraudo reports that Cal quarterback Davis Webb will start Friday night against Oregon, while wide receiver Chad Hansen’s status is still uncertain.

Arizona

Brandon Dawkins has been cleared to return from a concussion, the Arizona quarterback announced on Twitter Tuesday. He got the injury in the loss to Utah a couple of weeks back and missed the USC game.

Washington State

Nick Bromberg of Yahoo Sports dives into Washington State coach Mike Leach accusing Arizona State of sign-stealing again, along with Todd Graham’s response to those claims.

Oregon State

Head coach Gary Andersen said that Oregon State is “horrible at throwing the football," and it’s not gonna be an easy road to plow in the air against fifth-ranked Washington. The Beavers are 123rd out of 128 FBS teams in passing yardage per game (146). Percy Allen has more.

USC

Our favorite pessimist Scott Wolf ponders how many games USC can “afford to lose” this year for this season to be considered a success.

Oregon

Chantel Jennings writes that football is “slowing down” for Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert, and that’s a good thing. The 49-point loss to the Dawgs looked horrendous, but Herbert actually made some positive strides in that game.

Utah

Here’s the Pac-12 Networks recap of Utah men’s basketball’s Runnin’ Utes Night. Red beat white 72-63, for whatever that’s worth.

Colorado

Pat Rooney previews the Colorado-Stanford women’s soccer match Thursday night on The Farm, as No. 22 Colorado puts its 10-match win streak on the line against the third-ranked Card.

Arizona State

The fact that Twitter is live-streaming hockey is good for Arizona State hockey and the sport at large, writes Malika Andrews of Sport Techie.
