Sunday night notes — Locker impresses and WSU loses a receiver

A couple quick notes to pass along. …

— First, Jake Locker got the most extensive action of his young career and threw touchdown passes for the Titans in a 23-17 loss to Atlanta. Here’s the first one and here’s the second one. He finished 9-19 passing for 140 yards in replacing the injured Matt Hasselbeck in the second half.

— Next, WSU coach Paul Wulff holds a conference call with reporters every Sunday night and repeated the news that quarterback Connor Halliday will miss the Apple Cup with a lacerated liver suffered in Saturday’s 30-27 loss to Utah. In fact, he said Halliday will remain in ICU for another day or so. He also said there is no chance Jeff Tuel will be able to play, so senior Marshall Lobbestael, who has started eight games for WSU this year, will get the start. The backup will be sophomore David Gilbertson, a walk-on who is the son of former UW coach Keith Gilbertson.

— Wulff also announced that senior receiver Isiah Barton suffered an ACL injury and obviously is out for the game, as well. Barton is WSU’s second-leading receiver (in terms of yards) with 49 catches for 638 yards and five touchdowns (here are WSU’s season stats).
