UNDATED (AP) — Stanford has been the surprise of the Pac-12 so far this season, entering this week as the only team without a conference loss. The young Cardinal opened Pac-12 play with a win over rival California and swept the Washington schools last week. Stanford faces a big test on Saturday on the road against Southern California. The Cardinal open the week with a road game against UCLA.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tyrell Terry scored a career-high 24 points and Pac-12 leading Stanford defeated UCLA 74-59 for the Cardinal's first victory at Pauley Pavilion since 2004-05. Stanford improved to 15-2 and 4-0 in the league, having won three in a row and eight of nine. Jaime Jaquez Jr. scored 15 points to lead UCLA. The Bruins dropped to 8-8 overall and 1-3 in the Pac-12 with their third loss in a row. UCLA closed within one early in the second half before Stanford used a 20-7 run to take control.

UNDATED (AP) — Washington State has hired Nick Rolovich as its new football coach. Rolovich is leaving behind the beaches of Hawaii for the chance to be a Power Five coach at Washington State. Rolovich agreed to a five-year contract that will pay about $3 million per season. He replaces Mike Leach, who left last week for the head job at Mississippi State. Rolovich's pass-happy, high-scoring offense is similar to Leach's system. Rolovich was the coach at Hawaii for four seasons, going 28-27 and taking the Rainbow Warriors to three bowl games.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California left tackle Austin Jackson will skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft. Jackson was the anchor of USC's much-improved offensive line last season. The 6-foot-6 junior was named to the All-Pac-12 first team. Jackson's achievements were even more impressive because he donated bone marrow to his younger sister, Autumn, less than a month before the start of training camp. Jackson's draft stock has risen steadily in recent months. He is widely expected to be picked in the first round in April.
