This is the week college football fans have had circled on the calendar for quite some time. This is the week that will begin to truly shape the BCS Championship picture. This is the week we have been waiting for.
The Pac 12 has a few quarterbacks being talked about when discussing the Heisman Trophy this season. While Oregon’s Marcus Mariota may be considered the Heisman favorite at this point in the season, Oregon State’s Sean Mannion has been doing more than enough to stay in the running, and may be the ultimate sleeper pick this season.
The University of Washington will hold a public memorial service for former football coach Don James on Sunday.
The Washington Huskies allowed more than 300 rushing yards in a 53-24 loss to the Arizona State Sun Devils.
Sean Mannion threw for 493 yards and four touchdowns for Oregon State (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12), which won its fifth game in a row since a shocking opening loss to FCS Eastern Washington.
Washington’s electric start to the season and an offense that’s among the best in the country are about to get a test that will help determine just how good these Huskies really are.
Keith Price threw for 213 yards and three touchdowns in less than a half and No. 17 Washington routed Idaho State 56-0 on Saturday.
“I think we’ll be better Saturday. There are some little tweaks that we are going to make that will make us even faster and more efficient.”
Head coach Steve Sarkisian said the bye week has worked perfectly because the team has had time to correct issues that arose with their faster offense in the opener as well as tackling issues.
Washington State’s rare victory at Southern California last weekend may be huge in the eyes of fans but coach Mike Leach says his focus has shifted to playing Southern Utah.
