Ted Miller Happy Friday. Not too much to be happy about for Arizona. Arizona State isn't hiding how much the Missouri game means to the program. California's Zach Maynard and Keenan Allen have a brotherly connection. No question who Colorado's go-to receiver is. The Buffs are concerned with California's team speed. Sure, he fumbled twice against LSU, but it was clear that Oregon running back De'Anthony Thomas has skills. Oregon State's quarterback controversy is a surprise to Ryan Katz, who didn't know his job was threatened. Stanford's Ben Gardner has bulked up and helped the defense. UCLA's defense needs to step up. Birthday boy Matt Barkley -- he's 21! -- is hoping USC puts four quarters together against Utah. Will Norm Chow and Jordan Wynn make beautiful music together at USC? Washington practiced hard on Thursday. A surprise captains' pick for Washington State feels like a good thing. Originally posted by ESPN.com - Pac-10 Blog Click here to view the article.
