Stanford, UCLA and Arizona State held serve as favorites before Pac-10 play begins.
UCLA 23, Kansas State 9: Johnathan Franklin rushed for 115 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries, and the UCLA defense turned in another strong performance, holding the Wildcats to just 263 yards. The Bruins improved to 3-0, winning without starting quarterback Kevin Prince, who's out three to four weeks with a broken jaw. Kevin Craft, who started the week No. 3 on the depth chart, competed 13 of 24 passes for 184 yards with an interception and a touchdown. Up next: off.
Arizona State 38, Louisiana-Monroe 14: The Sun Devils' defense held the Warhawks to less than 200 yards, while the offense managed to score 38 points with just 275 total yards. Omar Bolden returned the opening kickoff 89 yards for a touchdown and picked off a pass. Up next: The Sun Devils take a step up in competition with a visit to Georgia on Saturday.
Stanford 42, San Jose State 17: Chris Owusu returned the opening kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown, and Toby Gerhart rushed for 107 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries as Stanford rolled. The Cardinal defense bounced back from a poor second half at Wake Forest to hold the Spartans to just 250 total yards. Up next: Stanford plays host to Washington.
