Darius Morris

It's time to get what I deserve

John Canzano

Trojan fans bent, but I’m not buying USC as a contender. Oregon, pac-12, must hope UCLA lends validity oregonlive.com/sports/oregoni…

Kerry Eggers

#gobeavs WR Rahmel Dockery (hip) should practice Monday and be ready to go Saturday at Colorado

Kerry Eggers

#gobeavs WR Victor Bolden (finger) unlikely to play vs. Colorado. Can run in practice this week but won't get sutures out until Thursday

John Canzano

I’ll hit @KGWSports Sunday immediately after the Cowboys-Saints to talk @pac12, and why I think USC is the pretender among pretenders.

Dorell Wright

24 -0 get off the sticks NO

Erik Gundersen

Warriors have to make Oscar The Grouch their new mascot.

Shy Glizzy over Hot Jigga beat.

Kerry Eggers

And the beat goes on: No offense, but @OSUBeaversFB loses to SC for 23rd straight time on the road portlandtribune.com/pt/12-sports/2…

John Canzano

USC sucked in its gut and posed for another selfie on Saturday. But the Pac-12 needed a stronger statement. oregonlive.com/sports/oregoni…

John Canzano

Oregon State is scared of its own shadow. Link: oregonlive.com/sports/oregoni…

John Canzano

USC is a faker. Not a good team. Makes me seriously wonder now about Stanford, Washington and the rest. oregonlive.com/sports/oregoni…

John Canzano

USC is pounding Oregon State, but it’s Oregon I’m thinking on. Does the Pac-12 have a true challenger for the Ducks? oregonlive.com/sports/oregoni…

Kerry Eggers

There's evidently no limit to how many times SC can show its pick-six on the Jumbotron tonight. I've counted eight so far

Kerry Eggers

150 K follows and not me? It hurts @SucksToSucks

Kerry Eggers

OSU slight edge in 1H; 3Q was huge edge to Trojans, 29-15 in plays RT @BCrawford70: @Kerry Eggers Great. What's the time of possession Kerry?

Kerry Eggers

I don't believe so RT @BradPlattner: @Kerry Eggers has he been thrown to?

Kerry Eggers

DJ Alexander leaves game with apparent shoulder injury

Kerry Eggers

Hunter Jarmon, so promising last week vs. Aztecs, hasn't caught a pass

Trojans keeping door open for Beavers. Missed field goal gives OSU ball trailing 21-10 with 5:40 left in 3Q
