Oregon

For the Thursday night showdown against Arizona State (7:30 p.m. PT, ESPN), the Oregon offense is looking to “rev up the Ferrari” as it heads to Tempe, writes Andrew Greif.

Arizona State

Meanwhile, Arizona State will be wearing Pat Tillman throwback uniforms. Also, Doug Haller gives us an Arizona State-Oregon scouting report and prediction (he has Oregon winning 31-27).

Utah

Chantel Jennings points out that Utah running back Devontae Booker will face former Utah defensive coaches this weekend in Kalani Sitake and Ilaisa Tuiaki when Oregon State makes the trip to the SLC. Booker rushed for 229 yards last year in Corvallis.

Oregon State

On the other side of the coin, Oregon State defensive coordinator Kalani Sitake is preparing to return to an “unbelievable” atmosphere in Utah. He spent  10 years at Utah, six of 'em as the defensive coordinator, before heading to Oregon State.

Stanford

As it gets ready to head up to Pullman, Stanford expects a tough crowd and bad weather for its Saturday night affair at Washington State, notes Jon Wilner.

Washington

Washington offensive coordinator Jonathan Smith says criticism comes with the territory of having his prominent role. The Huskies are 11th in scoring offense and last in total offense in the Pac-12, numbers that have upset the Husky fan base.

USC

Greg Beacham of the Associated Press notes that interim head coach Clay Helton’s “player-friendly style” is working at USC.

Washington State

Jacob Thorpe focuses his latest article on the players who are redshirting at Washington State and their in-season training regimen (it’s a little different for them than the starters).

California

Bruce Feldman writes about the new Joe Roth documentary that is airing on Pac-12 Networks and posts a Q&A with Phil Schaaf, one of the filmmakers.

Colorado

Brian Howell features Colorado defensive lineman Leo Jackson, a sophomore junior college transfer who has played two-thirds of the Buffs’ defensive snaps this season.

UCLA

Let’s make it two days in a row with a story about UCLA running back Soso Jamabo in the link roundup, this one coming from the Los Angeles Times’ Chris Foster.

Arizona
