A busy day in the Pac-12

The Cougars may have been off this week, but some interesting things happened around the Pac-12.

Saturday was an eventful day around the Pac-12 and while most of the games went as expected, at least one of the results may be a good sign for WSU.

Heading into Saturday's action, many Cougar fans were struggling to find another win on the schedule. Those chances may have improved, depending on how much stock you put in a single result. After Utah beat Stanford three weeks ago, a lot of WSU fans took that game off the list of potential wins. The Utes, however, lost 19-3 to a banged up USC team and looked bad in the process.

Arizona's 44-20 win against Colorado looks like a blowout win, but the Wildcats also showed some vulnerability. Colorado had some success against the Wildcats, despite starting a true freshman quarterback. The Wildcats led by just seven, 27-20 midway through the third quarter.

Bishop Sankey and Washington racked up yards in a 41-17 victory against California. Keith Price had one of his better games of the season, and WSU hasn't exactly been good against the pass. The Huskies also took a hit though, with the news Kasen Williams suffered a Lisfranc foot injury. Williams will now likely miss the rest of the season.

None of Saturday's results mean WSU will win any more games this season. Instead, they are just another example of how unpredictable college football can be. With four games to go, you can't pencil in any wins for the Cougars, but I don't think you can write of any of the final four games either.
