Utah offensive coordinator Norm Chow will receive a $500,000 buyout from UCLA this season. The Los Angeles Times confirmed the amount through information obtained through a public records request.

The amount is in addition to a two-year, $550,000 deal he signed with the Utes after officially leaving the Bruins in January.

It should make the Nov. 12 game between Utah and UCLA at Rice-Eccles Stadium a little more intriguing.

— Utah running back Thretton Palamo isn't going to be a center of attention with the USA National Team in rugby.

— The Orange County Register debates its recent Pac-12 football coaches rankings.

— Ex-Ute Alex Smith continues to be in the news in San Francisco.

— Former Utah coach Jim Boylen is "not quite locked up yet" to be an Indiana Pacers assistant.
