Wednesday night links

There’s no debating these links. …

— Former Husky Donald Butler was named the AFC’s Defensive Player of the Week.

— Nice story here from The Oregonian on Justin Wilcox’s return to his native state.

— The Oregonian also has this on Oregon coaches and players downplaying the rivalry (oh for the days of Rick Neuheisel calling Oregon a “propaganda machine” and Mike Bellotti firing back).

— The Oregonian also has video of Chip Kelly talking about UW’s defense and a rundown of Oregon news.

— SBNation ponders if the UW defense is for real.

— The Eugene Register-Guard breaks down why Oregon keeps getting night games.

— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller says the game is “just business.”

— The Huskies are selling T-shirts celebrating the Stanford win.

— The Autzen Zoo provides some numbers.

— The AP says Oregon is finding balance in Pac-12 play.

Jon Wilner has UW fifth in his Pac-12 power rankings and says Wilcox is earning every penny.

— Stanford’s rushing attack against UW is on the waiting list of the Bottom Ten.

— This is either an eye test that only a Grateful Dead fan would love, or a good statistical breakdown of the UW-Oregon game.

— CollegeFootballTalk predicts a 56-21 Oregon win and says “this game is going to get ugly.”

Phil Steele, meanwhile, calls it 42-17.

— Here’s a preview of the game from CBSSports.com and also a pick of a 45-31 Oregon win.

— And The Sports Network picks Oregon 45-31.

— Interesting stuff from Yahoo.com on going for it on fourth down — UW had two big fourth-down conversions last week but is actually just 4-9 on fourth down this year, ninth in the Pac-12 (Oregon has converted 8-12 and is tied for first with Arizona State).

— Miller also has a detailed look at the sticky situation at Cal.

— Finally, a reader passed this along and suggested it might be a good tutorial for a UW fan attempting to understand Oregon’s offense. I agree, so here it is:
