Sorry for the lack of news today ... I was traveling for Pac-10 men's basketball media day Thursday.
I might yet get a few notes from Ty Willingham's afternoon press briefing, but meanwhile, here are this week's power rankings... with a new team at the bottom.
1 Arizona State 8-0, 5-0. One of five unbeatens nationally, and only one in conference play.
2 Oregon 7-1, 4-1. GameDay returns to Eugene ... Ducks must be doing something right.
3 USC 6-2, 3-2. Defense unlikely to win this season's Pac-10 championship.
4 California 5-3, 2-3. Tedford has raised bar high enough where this feels like a flop.
5 Oregon State 5-3, 3-2. Three of next four on the road ... all except UW game.
6 UCLA 5-2, 4-1. Seven-game league win streak ended hard in Pullman.
7 Arizona 3-6, 2-4. QB Tuitama's 517 total yards at UW third best in Pac-10 history.
8 Stanford 3-5, 2-4. Have already matched '06 interception total and have almost doubled sacks.
9 Washington State 3-5, 1-4. WR Bumpus four catches from school career record.
10 Washington 2-6, 0-5. Needed a win, got a kick in the gut instead.
