The Pacific-10 Conference has been turned inside-out, and nobody really knows what to expect going forward.
ARIZONA: Ignore the punter story (or read it … it is about a punter), but what’s next to it. Stoops figures a lot of his injured players will be back by the UW game on Oct. 10.
ARIZONA STATE: A good recap about the Sun Devils’ almost-successful weekend at Georgia. Good showing by ASU.
CALIFORNIA: After Best was smothered at the line of scrimmage by the Ducks, the Bears can expect the same approach in coming weeks – until they can fend it off with a sharper passing game.
OREGON: Fortunes looked bleak for Chip Kelly after one game. Then things got straightened out in a big way.
OREGON STATE: A 2-2 for the Huskies is fine. A 2-2 start for the Beavers, and suddenly Corvallis is in panic mode.
UCLA: It’s a nice change from 2008 – the Bruins are running the ball, something that wasn’t totally expected.
USC: What do the Trojans expected from suddenly-vulnerable Cal? An early-week look at the Pac-10’s best game of the season, at least on paper.
WASHINGTON STATE: Cougars can take satisfaction in not backing down after getting behind 27-0 to USC. A big assist to improved strength and conditioning.
