Sporting News: The good, the bad and the games of the week

Looking good: Cal. The win at Washington State was methodical, showing this is a gritty club that's resourceful in how it navigates its way to victory. The troika of QB Nate Longshore, RB Marshawn Lynch and WR DeSean Jackson is without peer. And the defense is underrated. There's no doubt this is the Pac-10's best team.

Looking lame: UCLA. The Bruins are being outed as a defensive fraud. That'll continue this week at Notre Dame. And the offense still is adapting to life without the Big Three of 2005: Mo Drew, Marcedes Lewis and Drew Olson. Looks like the hype machine was activated too soon for UCLA.

Game of the week: Oregon at Washington State. Any trip to the Palouse can be dicey. The Ducks will get their points, but the Cougs will tally a lot, too. What's it mean? This game could come down to the fourth quarter-maybe even the last possession. This could be a fun game-and darn scary for the Ducks.
