Stanford's defense continued to make plays all over the field deep into Saturday's 45-0 win over UC Davis, seen on Pac-12 Networks.

The Cardinal did so with style too.

It didn’t take long for Stanford wide receiver Ty Montgomery to remind everyone why he was a consensus All-American as a returner in 2013.

UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley goes 20-for-33 for 242 yards in a hard-earned 28-20 victory against Virginia.

Virginia didn't give UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley much time to operate Saturday in Charlottesville. The offensive line's troubles protecting Hundley kept the UCLA offense from finding a rhythm, especially in the first half.

Then UCLA's defense came to the rescue.

Austin Hill caught a 92-yard catch for the Arizona Wildcats in a win against UNLV.

Arizona found out who would replace departed running back B.J. Denker and quarterback B.J. Denker. Quarterback Anu Solomon and running back Terris Jones-Grigsby only took three possessions to make the Wildcats feel good about what they've got.

It didn’t take long for Sefo Liufau to settle in during Colorado's season opener. How ‘bout that 54-yard bomb perfectly thrown to Nelson Spruce for the game’s opening touchdown?

The two weren’t done linking up, as Spruce’s second touchdown grab via Liufau was an absolute work of art (you can watch both TDs in the above video).

Olympic gold medalist swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen was honored before kickoff at the Colorado-Colorado State game in Denver Friday night.

Utah and Arizona State football teams got off to hot starts to their 2014 campaigns. Washington State's heartbreaking loss was the lone blemish on Thursday's Pac-12 schedule.
