We're a little more than an hour away from kickoff here at Arizona Stadium.

To help get you ready a few gameday links to pass along:

• For the game advance, we look at the early start time of today's game and how Arizona will prepare for it.

On our hot sheet, we talk about Arizona's recent red zone problems, B.J. Denker's shot at a 2,000/1,000 season, how Mike Leach loves pirates and two-way players. 

• The best part of any Saturday is Greg Hansen's Dear Mr. Football column. Today's subject? Magicians! 

• Jacob Thorpe from the Spokesman Review looks at four keys to a victory for Washington State. No. 1 is not a shock—stop Ka'Deem Carey.

• Here's a preview of all the Pac-12 games today from the good folks at the ESPN Pac-12 blog. 

• Jon Wilner from the San Jose Mercury News predicts an Arizona win in his Pac-12 Saturday selections. 

• Thorpe's advance focuses on what it would mean for Washington State to become bowl eligible. The Cougars are two wins away from accomplishing that.
