Sunday night links and notes

We’re getting to the end of it now, as there are just two more weeks in the regular season.

But they are two pretty big weeks, two games that will go a long way toward coloring the season for the Washington Huskies, who obviously can finish 8-4, 7-5 or 6-6 — and you don’t need me to tell you how different the perceptions would be of each of those records.

Task No. 1 of what’s left is a trip to Corvallis Saturday to play Oregon State, a place UW has won just once since 1999 (a 38-17 win in 2003).

A few notes and links to get the week started. …

— As always, I’ll be on the Husky Roundtable Monday morning at around 8:20 a.m. on KJR-AM 950 (and also 102.9-FM) with Mitch Levy and former Huskies Hugh Millen and Chuck Nelson.

— And also as always, UW coach Steve Sarkisian will meet the media Monday at noon and you can watch it on UWTV or listen on KJR-AM.

— Here’s my story for the Monday paper wrapping up what happened over the weekend while also looking ahead.

Bud Withers reviews the weekend that was in the Pac-12.

— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller projects UW to go to the Alamo Bowl based on both Oregon and Stanford making the BCS.

Mark Schlabach also has UW going to the Alamo while Brad Edwards has them headed to the Holiday.

Jerry Palm projects UW to play Texas A&M in the Alamo Bowl.

— LA Times USC beat writer Gary Klein talks about the win over Washington.

— USC coach Lane Kiffin also revealed today that Robert Woods is only about 70 percent due to a sprained ankle, helping explain why he didn’t do much Saturday.

— Kiffin also said in his Sunday night conference call that “the big difference in the game was the line of scrimmage.” Hard to argue that. Here’s another version.

— The Oregonian has an injury update on Oregon State, and a few other notes, from Mike Riley’s Sunday conference call.

— More OSU news and notes from the Corvallis Gazette-Times. Most notable? OSU is ranked 119th in the country in rushing defense. Sounds like a steady dose of Chris Polk coming OSU’s way on Saturday.

— The LA Daily News points out a potential unintended consequence of the Pac-12 title game — UCLA could win the South at at bowl-eligible 6-6, lose in the Pac-12 title game and then be ineligible for a bowl.
