UCLA 44, Washington State36 (final) Now I feel bad about saying Washington State had little talent. That was a cheap shot born of frustration because of undisciplined play by both sides and officiating that was losing control of the game. The Cougars do have some talent, and it's giving the kind of effort that will probably save the team from a post-game Mike Leach rant. Note: we did say probably. At the end it was a one possession game. The Cougars passed for 456 yards and outgained UCLA in total offense by 193 yards.

One way to drive up UCLA Coach Jim Mora's blood pressure this week was to say three letters … U …S … C. The 17th-ranked Bruins play the Trojans next Saturday. First comes woeful Washington State and Mora has demanded his players focus on the task at hand rather than the team from across town. Staff writer Chris Foster (mostly) does exactly that in examining the Bruins vs. Cougars matchups and story lines: Double trouble The best quarterback-running back duo in the Pac-12 Conference - outside of Eugene, Ore. - is UCLA's Brett Hundley and Johnathan Franklin.

When coal is mined in Montana, shipped out of Washington state and ultimately burned in China, who is responsible for the greenhouse gases? That is the latest question challenging Washington state officials as they review plans for the first major coal export facility on the U.S. West Coast. While the state is examining the impact of increased greenhouse gas emissions from truck and rail traffic to the proposed facility, environmental groups want them to go a big step further, arguing that slowing coal-based emissions in China starts with stopping coal shipments from U.S. shores.

Mitt Romney won Washington state's GOP caucuses Saturday, giving him a welcome tail wind as he heads into the Super Tuesday presidential contests. The former Massachusetts governor led from early on after a day of caucusing by Washington voters. Texas Rep. Ron Paulappeared headed for second place, ahead of former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who barely contested the state, was a distant fourth. "The voters of Washington have sent a signal that they do not want a Washington insider in the White House," Romney said in a victory statement issued by his campaign.

Defense is USC's bread and butter, its faithful standby. If shots aren't falling, if calls go against them, if the hardwood cracks in two and a chasm appears, suspending play indefinitely -- it's cool, no worries, don't sweat it. The Trojans can still rely on their rock-solid defense, which is built on players being aggressive, knowing if they get beat, a teammate has their back. But against Washington State on Thursday, that defense, which was ranked first nationally in scoring defense (54.7)
