Roundup: College GameDay coming to Washington
Ted Miller takes a look ahead to the Washington-USC game next weekend, as College GameDay will be on Montlake for all the fun. The Trojans have won five straight after starting 1-3, most recently demolishing Oregon.
After the Huskies dominated Cal 66-27 Saturday night, Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports has Washington as his No. 4 seed in his College Football Playoff projections, saying there’s no denying the Dawgs this time around (it also helps that Texas A&M lost to sub-.500 Mississippi State).
Stanford men’s soccer won its third straight Pac-12 title by virtue of San Diego State beating Washington, leaving the Huskies four points shy of the Cardinal with one game to play.
Now at No. 16 in the latest AP poll, Colorado football is in the AP top 20 the first time in 13 years, Brian Howell points out.
Washington State broke numerous records in its 69-7 pasting of Arizona, and Jacob Thorpe breaks it down for us in the link. The Cougs have secured their second consecutive winning season.
Here are Jon Wilner’s three takeaways from Cal’s 66-27 loss to Washington. The Golden Bears kept it close for a little while, at least.
Gina Mizell writes that Oregon State wore down in the 26-15 loss to Stanford. The Cardinal just kept on plowing through the Beavers’ defensive line to the tune of 365 rushing yards.
In case you didn’t know, UCLA linebacker Jayon Brown leads the Pac-12 in tackles with 91 (58 solo, which also leads the conference). Thuc Nhi Nugyen has more in the link.
Kyle Goon writes that Utah football hopes to avoid another bad November. The Utes are just 4-5 in the last two Novembers.
Doug Haller gives us his latest Arizona State football practice report. The Sun Devils had three days off to heal up some bodies during their shortened bye week. Sounds like Manny Wilkins might be back, as he lined up with the first team during the part of practice that was open to the media.
Because it’s never too early, USA TODAY Sports has Oregon men’s basketball as a No. 2 seed in its preseason bracketology. Also making the field in these projections are Cal (No. 7), UCLA (No. 5), Arizona (No. 4), Colorado (No. 11) and USC (No. 10).
The Wildcats might have lost by 62 on the gridiron, but hey, at least Arizona men’s basketball outlasted Chico State 78-70 behind 21 points from Lauri Markkanen.
