Saturday Out West creates content with a structured editorial process in place. We aim to fairly, independently and accurately report on and comment on all college football related news, specifically when it occurs within the Pac-12 in college sports. While college football remains a focus of our coverage, our editorial staff also covers a number of other college sports such as college basketball, college baseball and college softball.
Corrections, Updates and Deletions
Saturday Out West makes every effort for content to be completely accurate upon publication. If a correction is required, we maintain transparency and will update a story if new information either adds to or invalidates the original story. Typically this is done through an editor’s note that is added to the beginning or end of an article. Saturday Out West will update content if real-time news breaks or if a factual or grammatical situation arises.
Nearly all content is left live with updates. Content will only be removed under unusual yet ethical situations.
Our policy on accurate headlines
- Our editorial process demands articles have accurate headlines.
- We do our best to respond to any inquiry dealing with uncertainty, especially regarding questioned facts.
Our top priority is to provide well written, trustworthy content covering college sports and the college teams you love. While college sports brings out the emotions of fanbases, our writers work hard to eliminate bias from their work. Yes, that means if our writers praise Oregon’s uniforms one week against Stanford, it doesn’t mean we’re Oregon homers. Our writers love what they do, and they know to keep fandom or any bias outside of our written content.
