TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - No. 24 Arizona State is in a familiar position after beating Michigan State for the second straight season. The goal now is to avoid a letdown, starting with Saturday's Pac-12 opener against Colorado at home. A year ago, Arizona State beat UTSA in its opening game and drew national attention by knocking off Michigan State in Tempe. The Sun Devils followed that up with a disappointing loss to San Diego State and another to Washington the following week on the way to a 7-6 season.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Oregon tight end Cam McCormick will miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury. McCormick dressed and participated in warmups before the Ducks' games against Nevada and last week against Montana but did not play. It is the second straight season McCormick has been sidelined by injury. He sat out last year after breaking his leg in the season opener against Bowling Green.
