Tuesday Tape Room is Pac-12 Networks football analyst (and former USC assistant coach) Yogi Roth’s chance to break down tape in search of details worth focusing on — similar to what’s happening in team meetings throughout the conference today.
Over my career as a player, coach and analyst I’ve heard many coaches say, "The way you do small things is the way you do all things."
Two new members of the Associated Press top 25 will make their season-debuts as ranked teams Saturday. That highlights the week of programming on the Pac-12 Networks.
UCLA, which moved into the rankings at No. 22 this week following its upset of Nebraska, hosts Houston at 7:30 p.m. Meanwhile, Arizona, which entered the top 25 at No. 24 after beating Oklahoma State last weekend, welcomes South Carolina State to Tucson, also for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.
A third game kicks off Saturday's menu of football on the networks at Noon when No. 4 Oregon hosts Tennessee Tech.
Thanks to an impressive Saturday evening slate, the Pac-12 landed five teams in the latest AP Top 25 poll released earlier today. The additions of UCLA and Arizona to the poll put the Pac-12 behind only the SEC and tied with the Big 12 in number of top-25 teams by conference.
The No. 14 UCLA's men's soccer team continues its rugged nonconference schedule Sunday when it hosts No. 11 UC Irvine at Drake Stadium on the Pac-12 Networks at 2 p.m. PT. This will be the Bruins' fifth match of the year, and the third against a ranked opponent.
Previously, then-ranked No. 2 UCLA opened the season with a loss to No. 6 New Mexico. Then the Bruins went on the road as the nation's 11th-ranked team and played No. 6 Maryland to a 2-2 tie.
If you remember last Saturday's game against Nevada, Cal's Keenan Allen ran a reverse 39 yards for a touchdown immediately after Pac-12 Networks broadcaster Dave Flemming made a point about Cal's inability to move the ball on the ground.
Allen was at it again today. As soon as broadcaster Rich Cellini said Southern Utah is exactly where it wants to be (down three entering the fourth), Allen caught a Zach Maynard pass over the middle and took it to paydirt for a 19-yard touchdown reception.
In case you missed it, or saw it but want to see it again -- or were in the crowd and want to see what it looked like -- here's the celebratory moment immediately following Oregon State's 10-7 upset victory over No. 13 Wisconsin on Saturday.
As you've likely heard by now, Pac-12 Networks is available nationally via DISH Network thanks to a deal struck overnight Friday.
Earlier in the week, Pac-12 Networks asked for your help carrying our negotiations with DISH across the goal line. You responded and DISH listened.
This video is our way of saying thanks to all of you -- and keep going. The 'power of the Pac' is proven.
It's not often you see a kicker this happy. Then again, it's not often you see a 60-yard field goal. Here's your chance at both, courtesy of WSU kicker Andrew Furney:
