Take a bottle, shake it up. Break the bubble, break it up.
- Ka'Deem Carey has been added to Maxwell Award watch list. Richard Morrison is putting in the extra work to try to get back on the field.
- Playing freshman Richard Smith is turning out to be the right call. This is a couple of days old, but here's a fun article from Brad Denny at House of Sparky on whether it's ever OK for ASU fans to root for Arizona.
- Star Lotulelei poses a big challenge to Cal.
- Colorado is adding support staff to its recruiting. Count defensive coordinator Greg Brown among the many disappointed in Colorado.
- Michael Clay is Oregon's coach on the field. Kiko Alonso will probably miss the Colorado game.
- Mike Riley likes the character of his team. Riley is not a fan of late kickoffs.
- Stanford has been fortunate to avoid injuries on the lines. Stepfan Taylor has increased his flexibility.
- Bruins still control their own destiny in the South. Jim Mora is breaking out a little Sun Tzu philosophy.
- USC played an up-tempo defense against Colorado to prepare for Arizona's pace. A contrite Leonard Williams gets some good news after his apology.
- Utah's defense needs more impact plays. Another good practice shows the Utes aren't discouraged.
- A video interview with Washington's Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Some post-practice notes.
- Recap of a Washington State chat session. Some post-practice notes.
