No UW game today, obviously, which means the Huskies can sit back and watch Stanford and Cal beat up on each other and then start getting ready for the Bears.
The only other Pac-10 is USC at Oregon State, pretty much a must-win for the Beavers to get to a bowl game this year, as well, though that seems really unlikely to happen now.
The weekend off also allows for coaches to do some recruiting. UW coach Steve Sarkisian was seen at the Bellevue-Liberty game last night, as was UCLA’s Rick Neuheisel, who stayed in town for a night to do some recruiting. Neuheisel was also seen at the Auburn-Curtis game (probably checking out Auburn OL Danny Shelton, probably the top prospect in the state that remains uncommitted).
Recruiting will really heat up in December, though the UW coaches hope they have to balance it with preparation for a bowl game.
One recruiting battle the Huskies have already won is for Skyline WR Kasen Williams, who only reinforced his case as the top recruit in the state this year by catching four touchdown passes for Skyline High last night to advance to the semifinals with a win over Issaquah.
And while I can’t find any stats, I’m assuming UW’s QB commit for this class, Joseph Gray of Dorsey, had a big game last night as his team won its first playoff game 37-7 over Gardena.
Interestingly, in the last week UW also offered QB Michael Eubanks of Corona (Calif.) Centennial, indicating a willingness to take two QBs in this class. The 6-5, 220-pounder also has an offer from Arizona State, among other schools, and plans to take all of his visits, so he doesn’t appear close to making a decision.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— The LA Times reports that many UCLA fans considered the game as “rock bottom” for the Bruins.
— The LA Daily News notes that the Bruins said later that UW’s pressure began to make a difference following that 92-yard drive. One reason UW was able to do that? UCLA’s passing offense was so feeble that the Huskies could play more press and man coverage successfully than in earlier games.
— Some decent stuff here on ESPN.com’s LA bureau’s UCLA-UW game center.
— Here’s maybe the best place to follow Cal.
Ken Goe looks at the Cal-Stanford implications for Oregon and also has lots of other Pac-10 links.
Vince Grippi wraps up WSU news — the Cougars have this week and next week off to prepare for the Apple Cup — and also has lots of other Pac-10 links.
All for now.
