OSU/Nicholls State rescheduled for Dec. 1 (and other stuff)

Suddenly, everybody wants a piece of the Beavers.

OK, no quite. But after Nicholls State was unable to travel to Corvallis in Week 1 due to Hurricane Isaac, the game between the Beavers has been rescheduled for Dec. 1, excepting the Beavers reach the Pac-12 Championship game or Nicholls State advances to the FCS playoffs. It was the plan coach Mike Riley said was most weeks ago and could mean one more win for the Beavers in their quest for bowl eligibility.

Oregon State used it's extra off week as a boost to upset No. 13 Wisconsin last week. It was a strange start for OSU, certainly, which rarely has opened with a win over an A-list non-conference oppoent, as researched by the ESPN blog.

Elsewhere...

— Stanford/USC is the biggest game of the week, at least within the conference. The Cardinal has a shot to win, says one writer, as the rivalry eases into a friendlier era. Not sure how this became a rivalry? Take a trip down memory lane.

— USC was smart enough to lift its ban on a reporter. But Washington was dumb enough to copy USC's policy. Reporters walk a fine line between information and strategy, but coaches are going too far.

— Cal goes to Ohio State this weekend, and let's just say the Bears haven't historically been good against top teams. The Bears' first challenge will be slowing QB Braxton Miller.

— Notre Dame's shakeup shouldn't affect its long relationship with the Pac-12.

— UCLA D-end Datone Jones made it out of Compton, now he goes back to help.

— If Washington State has to go forward without Jeff Tuel this week, backup Connor Halliday could be fun to watch.

— Former Colorado coach Bill McCartney still has confidence in Jon Embree, who strangely isn't as high on these hot seat rankings as you'd think.

— Speaking of the hot seat. Jon Wilner estimates it would cost Cal $10 million to oust much-maligned Jeff Tedford.

— Bill Oram
