footballcollegeParity is giving way to clarity in the Pac-12 race. After two months of muddled standings, the road to the conference championship game - and a possible spot in the four-team College Football Playoff - is paved for a pair of Pac-12 teams now.

Halliday Out For Season With Broken Ankle

halliday wsuWashington State quarterback Connor Halliday broke his ankle in Saturday's loss to Southern California and is out for the rest of the season. That's according to football coach Mike Leach on Monday. Halliday, the nation's passing leader, broke his ankle in the first quarter of Saturday's 44-17 loss to the Trojans. The injury occurred after Halliday completed a 14-yard pass and was twisting away from USC defensive tackle Leonard Williams, who fell on Halliday's legs.


Thompson Expected To Get Start At RB For Huskies

Shaq Thompson's performance as a running back for Washington against Colorado didn't get him a Pac-12 player of the week nod. It was good enough that Thompson is expected to get a third straight start at running back when the Huskies host No. 18 UCLA on Saturday. But it sounds like Thompson won't be limited to just one side of the ball against the Bruins. Washington coach Chris Petersen said Thompson would play some on defense after being strictly an offensive player the past two weeks. Thompson ran for 174 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries against Colorado. It was a needed bounce-back win for the Huskies (6-3, 2-3 Pac-12), who achieved bowl eligibility with the win after dropping their previous two games. SEATTLE (AP) – November 4, 2014
