Quarterback Sawyer Smith isn't thinking about possible injury as the Vikings prepare for their 4 p.m. Saturday game at Oregon. Smith and backup Tygue Howland both got hurt when PSU played at Cal earlier this year. 'Our mind-set is the same as always - go play football and play to win,' Smith says.
• PSU running back Mu'Ammar Ali and UO safety J.D. Nelson roomed together at a football camp in seventh grade.
• Viking receiver Tremayne Kirkland says he was recruited by the Ducks -by then-assistant coach Dan Ferrigno, the father of PSU wideout Brendan Ferrigno. 'Oregon and Oregon State wanted me to play cornerback, but I couldn't see myself making tackles,' Kirkland says.
