It isn't looking good for Matt Barkley who missed his third consecutive practice today. Reports out there said he tried to throw before practice but had difficulty with his bruised shoulder. Pete Carroll may wait till game time to make a decison on who the starter will be. I would rather faced a dinged up Matt Barkley than the more mobile Aaron Corp. I think at this point the odds are pretty good that Corp will be the starter on Saturday.

Safety Taylor Mays is still out. He is expected to try to play. CB Marshall Jones would start at safety of Mays is not ready to go.

TB Joe McKnight missed practice today because of migraines.

USC reserve TB Marc Tyler will not play this week. He is out with a sprained toe.

LT Charles Brown who had been out a couple days with the flu returned to practice today.

Husky reserve DT DeShon Matthews won't play of Saturday as he recovers from a bruised knee.

DE Darrion Jones is now practicing and could start on Saturday.

The New York Yankees continue to seek college football games in their new stadium and are close to signing a four-year agreement to host what is likely to be called the Yankee Bowl, people familiar with the negotiations said. The Big East and Big 12 are expected to participate.

UCLA has suspended four football players for violating team rules, sidelining them for Saturday's home game against Kansas State.
