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.

This is the week that Pac-12 fans have circled all spring and summer.

This is the week that Chip Kelly and Lane Kiffin have tried to avoid talking about all season.

This is the week that matches up old school pro-style football against the new age up-tempo spread scheme.

Yes, it’s Oregon at USC. Finally.

During the Pac-12 Football Media Day in July, we caught up with Arizona State linebacker Brandon Magee, an aspiring sports broadcaster once his playing days are over.

Now, you too can open your own sports bar.

OK, maybe it won't have actual customers, tables and food and drink, but thanks to Pac-12 Now, fans have the ability to watch multiple Pac-12 contests literally in the palm of their hands.

With the release of the iPhone and iPod Touch app earlier this month, accessing mutliple streams is even more readily available. All seven Pac-12 Networks are available through the apps, meaning fans can watch different regional networks simuletaneously on different devices or browse them freely on one at a time.

As fast as the Oregon Ducks are as a team, they don't have a monopoly on quicks in the beaver state. At the Oregon Twilight track meet last spring, Oregon State's Markus Wheaton was seven-hundredths of a second faster than Oregon's De'Anthony Thomas in the 100-meter dash.

But don't forget about Brandin Cooks, who made a case for being one of the fastest dudes in the conference with this 54-yard touchdown reception on Saturday.

The Oregon Ducks just can’t get any computer love. Despite dropping 70 on Colorado and Florida losing to Georgia, Oregon remains at No. 4 as a result of Notre Dame’s win over Oklahoma. However, thanks to a tough remaining schedule that includes games against USC, Stanford and Oregon State, the Ducks still have a very good shot of surpassing two of the three teams in front of them should they win out.

Utah kick returner Reggie Dunn ruined the Golden Bears' collective mood on Saturday -- twice.

Cal took a lead early in the first quarter after a 49-yard field goal from Vincenzo D'Amato, but Dunn quickly erased that deficit with a 100-yard return for a touchdown on the ensuing kickoff.

And then, after a rough, rough game, Cal finally found the end zone with an impressive Brendan Bigelow run to break a 28-0 Utah scoring spurt.

What do you think happened next?

After a touchdown was overturned by booth review, Washington found itself in a 4th and goal situation inside the Beaver 2-yard line. You couldn't blame Steve Sarkisian for taking the points with a field goal had he done so considering the nature of the game, but the Husky head man kept his offense out on the field to make a statement.

Mission accomplished: Bishop Sankey found paydirt on a quick snap to put Washington up 10-0 going into the break.

Let's imagine a world in which Marqise Lee catches Matt Barkley's last-second Hail Mary on Saturday against Arizona in Tucson. Tack on those 48 yards to the 345 Lee already had in the bank, and you'd have the second biggest single-game individual receiving total in FBS history behind only Troy Edwards' 405-yard day in 1998.

The biggest hit on UCLA wide receiver Damien Thigpen was on this 65-yard score against Arizona State that came from one of his own teammates in the end zone. UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley sidestepped the blitz and fired a strike to Thigpen. The junior then tightroped the sideline and dove into the end zone.

The only man to touch Thigpen is Bruins tight end Joseph Fauria -- though "touch" doesn't do it justice.

Dynamic Oregon running back De'Anthony Thomas had the signature play on a big day for the Ducks offense against Colorado. After letting a punt bounce, the sophomore scooped up the kick and broke multiple tackles by the Buffaloes for a 73-yard touchdown. {C}
