Hey everyone. Set up here in the press box at Memorial Stadium. There’s about 45 minutes until kickoff. Obviously one thing I’m looking for during warm-ups is if Rulon Davis, Matt Malele or Zack Follett are suited up. It doesn’t appear that they are playing, but so far only the quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and defensive backs have taken the field.

The forecast calls for rain this afternoon, and the cloudy skies above sure seem to be confirming it. So far, there have been no drops, but it looks pretty imminnent. Rain could have an impact on the game, especially Arizona because it runs the spread offense. The Wildcats like to throw, but rain can be an equalizer to the passing game sometimes.

I was keeping an eye on the Florida score earlier because it obviously has implications for the rankings if the Bears win today. But Cal lost out on a chance to move past one team with a win because the Gators hung on to beat Mississippi.
