Campus Clicks: Pac-12 linebacker news, Mario Kart at OU Stadium
Week 4 brings us a major Pac-12 showdown in the desert as UCLA faces Arizona in Tucson. Unfortunately for the Bruins, they'll be without one of the nation's best linebackers, Myles Jack, who is out for the season. Is Jack's injury the most impactful of the 2015 season? Meanwhile, USC linebacker Su'a Cravens pulled a classy move in tweeting his well wishes for the injured UCLA star. And just as the Bruins lost their stud playmaker, Arizona is getting theirs back: Scooby Wright practiced with the first-team defense.
Shortly after news broke of Jack's injury, the program's Instagram account sent out this goosebump-inducing (and rather sinister) photo and message:
