Dear Pac-12 fans,

We read your questions daily about the status of an agreement with DirecTV. We know you are frustrated. We are too.

We are close to completing our first football season in which we will have televised 35 of the 79 home games, including 21 Conference games. We have had every team on the air at least three times and we have had 18 games featuring top 25 teams. And we will close the season with either No. 17 UCLA vs. No. 13 Stanford or No. 16 Oregon State vs. No. 2 Oregon on Saturday, November 24.

Sophomore guard Norman Powell didn't let his 0-7 shooting performance on Tuesday get to him. He was just saving it up for Thursday night's game against James Madison. Powell exploded for a career-high 27 points in the Bruins' 100-70 win. The San Diego, Calif. native has been compared by many to former UCLA great and current Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook; a lofty comparison for any player.

Well, his hops certainly lived up to the high expectations for him on this alley-oop slam:

Last week it was Stanford's Dwight Powell that made moves in the season opener, this week it was Josh Huestis who brought out every part of his arsenal in Thursday night's game against Alcorn State. This athletic block shows why he was an Honorable Mention for the Pac-12 All-Defensive Team last year:


A couple weeks ago, we promised the Twitterverse that we'd forever be done with Gangnam Style after you all watched this video. Unbeknownst to us, we were lying.

The season has just begun, but Washington State already looks like they are in midseason form. They jumped all over Utah Valley University on Wednesday night, 72-49, primarily because of their new dynamic guard combo of DaVonte Lacy and Mike Ladd.
