A look around the Pac-10

Will USC's dynasty continue in the Rose Bowl Game Presented by Citi? Can Arizona State make up for an underachieving season with a bowl win? How will UCLA fare in the Vitalis Sun Bowl? Our Pac-10 notebook addresses those questions and much more.


Mike Stoops is now 6-16, the worst record for any Arizona coach in his first two years. After talking about a bowl berth during the preseason, the Wildcats duplicated last year's 3-8 finish, only this year it ended with a collapse, not a victory, against rival Arizona State.
