Many Pacific-10 Conference teams, including the Huskies (3 p.m.), are scrimmaging today. Here is some news from their camps:
ARIZONA: Mop-up defensive back Wade is now in starring role in Wildcats' secondary. And he's a ball hawk.
ARIZONA STATE: Today's scrimmage will go a long way in determining the direction the Sun Devils are going.
CALIFORNIA: More answers than questions about the Bears' offensive line starting to form. A starting five has been named.
OREGON: Hobbled receivers come back and look good in workouts Friday. Also, Blount, the starting running back, is back after a two-day absence.
OREGON STATE: Which "coach" has been most vocal from the sideline these days? It's receiver James Rodgers, who is healing slowly from a knee ailment.
STANFORD: This is a day old, but since the Cardinal is one of the few major programs in the country that doesn't receive daily coverage this time of year, here is a look at the walkons.
UCLA: So much talk about Ramirez taking over at tailback. That might subside with his lingering hamstring injury, and others taking their best shots at earning playing time.
USC: Injuries continue to mount in the Pac-10 capital of the West Coast. This one to Armstead will force the Trojans to shuffle around a few men on the defensive line.
WASHINGTON STATE: Lots happening, and a big portion of it not good. Running back James Montgomery (knee) will be out a couple of weeks, and that could carry into the Stanford opener. Not much has materialized in the quarterback race. And check this link out for a story on the Cougars' receiving corps.
