It was not a shock UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley played Thursday night, less than two weeks after hyperextending his left elbow against Texas.
Arizona State Coach Todd Graham, who isn't a doctor and doesn't even play one on TV, emphatically predicted...

So much news broke this week it was easy to forget the reason we all get called together each fall: the games.
