Saturday links — Gameday on tap

Drops are starting to fall on the windows as I type this and the omninous forecast in our paper today is for “increasing rain” for the rest of the day.
So come prepared to see an intriguing — and obviously pivotal — game for the Huskies against Stanford today.
Two players I’m realizing I may not have mentioned enough on here this week to watch for Stanford are RB Stepfan Taylor and FB/LB Owen Marecic.
Taylor is a sophomore who has essentially taken over for Toby Gerhart, ranking sixth in the Pac-10 in rushing so far with 624 yards and an average of 5.0 per attempt. Marecic is a senior from Tigard, Ore., earning acclaim for having started on both sides of the ball five times already this season.
Both figure to play key roles today. On to the links. …
— Here’s my preview, leading off with a look at the matchup of QBs Jake Locker and Andrew Luck.
— GoHuskies.com’s preview notes the improved health of Locker.
— The UW Daily’s preview includes this look at what UW has to do to win today.
— The Go2Guy — not to be confused with the Go2TheWindowToCashAWinningTicketGuy — picks Stanford to beat UW today and also has a couple other Pac-10 selections.
— The San Jose Mercury News says Stanford’s secondary could have problems against the Huskies today.
— FanHouse.com also looks at the Locker-Luck matchup.
— Here are Stanford’s game notes for today along with a depth chart.
— UW commit Kasen Williams. a WR at Skyline, had a big game Friday with seven catches for 174 yards and three touchdowns.
— Interesting move by former UW player Nigel Burton, now the head coach at Portland State, to strip the team’s decals off the helmets due to substandard play.
— Lots of Pac-10 links from Vince Grippi.
And as always, I’ll shoot for a live chat about 90 minutes prior to kickoff, so roughly 2:30 p.m. or so.
