  • As usual, Chris Petersen held his Monday morning press conference yesterday. Video and a transcript of it can be found here. He touched on the status of Jake Browning saying that the QB is day-to-day. Petersen also informed the media that freshman receiver Quinten Pounds suffered a season ending knee injury recently.
  • Saturday's game will be the 3rd game this season kicking off after 7 p.m. and there is more where that came from:
