Reporters' Notebooks

Wendell Barnhouse, Fort Worth Star-Telegram: The excellent college football insider: Notes, quotes and anecdotes.

Andrew Logue, Des Moines Register: Iowa State unveiled its new helmet, uniform and logo designs to be used beginning next season.

Tony Phifer, Coloradoan: Mountain West Conference notebook: Utah and Nevada Las Vegas are the most confounding teams in the league.

The Nevada/UNLV rivalry, while small in scale, is as heated as any rivalry on the West Coast. It's a shame the game doesn't happen during rivalry week. You'd think UNLV would have picked up the game but with the 1pm PST starting time, I suppose they had better fish to fry. Should be a great game though....
