Sunday morning links and notes

I’m putting these together at 35,000 feet, the miracle of in-flight WiFi never failing to impress. …

— The latest polls are out and Washigton remained on the ballots of three voters — here they are. That has UW technically at 34th in the AP poll. UW didn’t get votes in the coaches poll.

Chris Polk was held to a season-low 36 yards yesterday, obviously putting a crimp in his attempt to get the UW career rushing record this season. He now has 3,693 yards, which leaves him 413 yards behind Napoleon Kaufman’s 4,106. He’d need to average 138 yards per game in the last three (assuming a bowl game) to break the record. He has 1,146 for the season, which remains eighth on the single-season rushing list.

— Here are all of UW’s NCAA statistical rankings, none of which got much better Saturday. Amomg the notable:

— UW has fallen to 68th in rushing offense at 152 yards per game, which is now behind the 172.2 of last season;

— UW is 93rd in the country in total defense allowing 425 yards per game. UW allowed 384.8 in 2010 and 389.5 in 2009;

— UW is 102nd in scoring defense allowing 34.1 points per game. UW allowed 29.3 last season;

— Quietly moving up the rankings is UW’s net punting, the highest-rated of any of UW’s stats at 13th, at 39.73.

— The LA Daily News notes Marqise Lee wasn’t really supposed to be on the field when he returned that kickoff for a touchdown.

— The Orange County Register offers five observations on the game.

— Lots of stuff on the game on the WeAreSC.com site including some grades.

— The USC blog Conquest Chronicles adds some of its own thoughts.

Bud Withers writes it was just another day at the office in the Pac-12.

— If you want to start looking ahead, here’s The Oregonian’s Oregon State rundown, noting that the Beavers have been outrushed 821-92 in the last three weeks.

— And if you really want to look ahead, here are a lot of links on WSU’s big win last night which suddenly puts a whole different complexion on the Apple Cup, especially if the Cougars can do it again next week against Utah and come to Seattle playing for bowl eligibility.

— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller examines what was learned in the Pac-12 over the weekend.

Jon Wilner examines the bowl ramifications of Oregon’s win over Stanford.

— A lot more links around the conference from Vince Grippi (at the bottom, after his review of the WSU-ASU game).
