Sunday morning links

A Sunday morning buffet. …

— First off, I’ll make sure you’ve all of our coverage on the Times on-line UW page. In particular, here’s Jerry Brewer’s column, our notebookthat had a lead item on the helmets the Huskies wore yesterday, a sidebar on Keith Price and the game story.

— Here’s a package of highlights and yet another.

— Here’s UW NCAA stats page, and most notable positive may be Keith Price’s passing efficiency rating of 182.26 (UW’s single-season record is 153.8 by Brock Huard in 1997). When people asked what Price’s strength might be, people said his efficiency. That’s proving true so far, though obviously tougher tests await. The most negative number is the pass defense, UW ranking last in the nation in yards allowed at 403.

— Here’s the coverage from UW’s official site.

— Here’s the coverage from the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and from Hawaii’s official site, which includes some YouTube interviews of UH coaches and players.

— Price got a helmet sticker from Ted Miller.

— Miller also notes that the last time UW and WSU were each 2-0 was in 2001 and that maybe the Apple Cup will mean something this year.

— Miller also says UW has undoubtedly found its QB and projects UW going to the Sun Bowl.

— In looking ahead, Nebraska had its struggles with Fresno State before finally putting the Bulldogs away — here’s a recap with stats.

— And playing Nebraska means it’s time to start linking again to Big Red Today and the Life in the Red blog. Lots of stories in each about Nebraska’s closer-than-expected win yesterday, which coach Bo Pelini said might be a “wake-up call” for his team, which sounds sort of familiar.

— It was a crazy day throughout the Pac-12 and you can find lots of links here from Vince Grippi (though he obviously leads off with everything WSU-related you’d ever need).

— A few Pac-12 links to highlight: Strange finish to the Utah-USC game, where the final score changed about two hours later, also impacting the betting line (course, that also happened in the UW game, depending on what number you got, when UW blocked that final PAT); Utah defends its decision to go for the FG at the end; Cal had to go to overtime to beat Colorado; Oregon State is awash in a QB controversy; Oregon had no trouble with Nevada; and UCLA had a tougher-than-expected time with San Jose State.
