Locker likely starter

UW coach Tyrone Willingham was fairly vague about the quarterback spot during his press conference today.
But he was a little more open during his radio show tonight. When pressed on who would be his starter should Jake Locker be healthy enough to play, Willingham said “right now, I’d probably go with Jake Locker.”
No real surprise there, obviously, but given the way Locker looked and sounded at the luncheon today, I’d expect he’ll be good to go and be the starter against the Cougars.
Another interesting admission by Willingham on the show was that he didn’t think the ball touched a Cal player on that muffed punt late in the second half — the ball was given to the Huskies after a review. That was obviously a big play leading to a 28-20 UW lead at the half instead of potentially Cal moving into position for at least a field goal, the way the Bears were moving the ball at that time.
