Layshia Clarendon scored 26 points as No. 6 California beat Washington State 73-60 on Thursday night to stay in first place in the Pac-12. Afure Jemerigbe added 14 points for California (26-2, 16-1), which has won 14 straight games.

The Cougs were so underweight last season that they averaged 50 pounds less per man than his old hosses at Texas Tech, he said. A comparison of other Pac-12 offensive lines yields some interesting data.

Countdown to Spring: Question No. 1

THE COMPETITION will be wide open this spring across the board at Washington State but perhaps nowhere will the battle be as pitched as on the offensive line. A QB battle tends to get the most ink and the Cougs have one of those in 2013. But no area on the offense will influence the Cougars' win-loss record more this season than up front on the o-line.
