UC Davis football coach Ron Gould says it doesn’t take long to see which incoming freshmen are ready to compete and those who will need more time to transition from high school to college.

North Carolina and California have scheduled football games for 2017 and 2018.

UC Davis women’s water polo goalkeeper Haley Cameron will be at Pepperdine on Monday through Thursday next week. But the former Davis High School multi-sport standout won’t be in Malibu to play water polo.

Brett Hundley believes his whole football career has been building to this season at UCLA, and he wasn't about to leave before he found out what comes next.

Cody Kessler's head has finally stopped spinning after a Southern California season featuring four head coaches, interminable drama and — somehow — 10 victories.

Thomas Boeh is leaving his job as Fresno State's athletic director for a new position at the university.

UCLA receiver Devin Lucien left practice in an ambulance Tuesday after injuring his head.

When it comes to speed, Terrance Mitchell tops out somewhere between frenetic and faster. The Dallas Cowboys rookie cornerback by way of Oregon and Burbank High School has been impressive in his first training camp, determined to make the final 53-man roster.

The difference in attitude at California is stark heading into coach Sonny Dykes' second season.

It's possible no one was happier when the Pac-12's preseason media poll picked Oregon to win the North Division than Stanford coach David Shaw and his players.

The NCAA wants clarification on two points in a California judge's ruling in the landmark Ed O'Bannon case.

At St. Paul's Episcopal School in Mobile, Alabama, the high school that produced Crimson Tide quarterbacks AJ McCarron and Jake Coker, there's a new preseason ritual for football players: the social media talk.

Mark Emmert said Sunday that the NCAA will appeal a ruling that opens the door for college athletes to receive some of the money they help generate in major sports.

Ed O'Bannon knows it's not over, far from it. He's ready for the appeals, and welcomes a challenge to the ruling that could change big-time college sports forever.

He can race past complex cover schemes and jump over defenders. He can do chin-ups on the crossbar with a running start.

College football and basketball players could be in line for paydays worth thousands of dollars once they leave school after a landmark ruling Friday that may change the way the NCAA does business.

Stanford coach David Shaw is beginning this season the same way he has his first three: preaching a running back-by-committee approach in training camp.

The biggest schools in college sports are about to get a chance to make their own rules.

New Sacramento State football coach Jody Sears put on quite a performance in overseeing the first day of the Hornets’ fall practice Tuesday morning. The animated Sears moved briskly from group to group, barking out instructions, demonstrating techniques and whooping up positive efforts.

Four years ago, they led their high school teams to regional prominence as big-time players with a penchant for big-time plays. Now, Shaq Thompson, the former Grant star, and Jordan Richards of Folsom are headliner talents in the Pacific-12 Conference at Washington and Stanford, respectively. And at this time next year, they very well could be on NFL rosters as first-round draft selections.
