Welcome to the week things really get going in the Pac-12. Some pretty good games on tap, including Utah/ASU, Oregon State/UCLA, Oregon/Arizona. Let's get it started.

— Still a lot of fallout from Colorado's embarrassing loss at Fresno State. Starting quarterback Jordan Webb said, "Everything went wrong." Still, the team came out in support of its coaching staff this week. The Buffs' struggles mean that lowly Washington State opens the week as a 17.5-point home favorite against Colorado.

— Oregon vs. Arizona will match up a couple of spread-offense geniuses. Of course, Rich Rod taught Chip Kelly everything he knows.

— Jim Mora denies (on Facebook!) a report that three players were suspended Saturday against Houston.

— What is an experienced coaching staff worth? Against UCLA, Oregon State hopes it's a lot.

— Despite struggles, Josh Nunes outplayed Matt Barkley on Saturday.

— Of all the things that didn't go ASU's way at Missouri, Todd Graham was most upset about special teams.
