Sunday night links

It’s less than 24 hours since the end of the Oregon game as I type this. But the Huskies don’t have much choice but to move on quickly this week with USC coming to town for a game Saturday at 4 p.m. at CenturyLink Field.

And think about this — it could be the last time USC visits Seattle until 2016. As part of the Pac-12 schedule rotation, UW in 2013-14 will not play USC and Colorado, with UCLA and Arizona State returning to the schedule (so yes, what that means is the end result of expansion for UW in 2013-14 is replacing a home-and-home with USC with a home-and-home with Utah). USC returns to the schedule in 2015, though the locations of the non-division conference games in future years is undetermined.

So you may want to take a good look at the Trojans this weekend.

The beginning of a new game week also means the Husky Roundtable Monday morning on KJR-AM where I will again join host Mitch Levy and former Huskies Hugh Millen and Chuck Nelson to discuss the Oregon game and look ahead to USC.

So I’ll post some links tonight. …

— My story for the Monday paper looked at what I imagine will be a topic of conversation all week — UW’s continuing struggles to get a passing attack going.

Bud Withers has this review of the Pac-12 weekend.

— CoachSark’s site posted this Sunday Conversation.

— USC practiced tonight, and the most significant news may be that WR Robert Woods, who appeared to suffer a concussion against Utah, practiced and appears good to go.

— USC coach Lane Kiffin said he doesn’t think Washington is that far behind Oregon, among other notes from tonight.

— Kiffin also said he expects UW to be a completely different team at home.

— Oregon coach Chip Kelly said Sunday he thought both of Oregon’s lines played well against the Huskies.

— Here’s The Oregonian’s Sunday Oregon Rundown.

Jon Wilner’s look at the Pac-12 weekend includes the note that UW and WSU combined for 10 turnovers in the state of Oregon Saturday (but hey, they didn’t have to pay sales tax!).

Chris Polk was inactive today and Jake Locker didn’t play due to injury. Senio Kelemete and Alameda Ta’amu were also inactive.

— UW plays at Arizona on Oct. 20. The Wildcats have a bye this weekend to recover from the brutal Stanford loss. Here’s a review of that game. And here’s another from the Tucson Citizen with some injury info.
