Got settled in just a while ago here at Sun Devil Stadium. It’s fairly warm but should be a nice temperature by the time the game begins. This is the first game in a couple of weeks where the focus won’t be on the quarterbacks warming up before the game. Nate Longshore appears to be close to fully recovered from his ankle injury and there’s no question who the starter is going to be.
We could have a three-way tie for first place in the Pac-10 standings by the end of the night. USC’s loss to Oregon knocked it out of a chance to share the top spot. If Cal wins tonight and UCLA loses to Washington State, ASU, UCLA and Oregon all will be 4-1 atop the conference and Cal and USC will be 3-2. That will set up a crazy final four games of the Pac-10 season.
I’ll check back in as we get closer to game time.
