Morning links: UW’s Keith Price, Bishop Sankey named to Maxwell Award watch list

Washington quarterback Keith Price and tailback Bishop Sankey were named this morning to the Maxwell Award watch list, given to college football’s player of the year by the Maxwell Football Club.

Price enters his third seasons as the Huskies’ starting quarterback with 54 career touchdown passes, one shy of Cody Pickett’s school record. Price’s 5,953 passing yards rank fourth on UW’s all-time list.

Sankey rushed for 1,439 yards and 16 touchdowns last season, his first as a starter.

The Maxwell Club also released its watch list for the Bednarik Award, given to the top defensive player. No Huskies were included.

Catching up on links, CBSsports.com has projected over/under win totals for Pac-12 teams this season. The Huskies over/under? 7.5. And the author, Chris Huston, isn’t picking the “over.”

Huston also notes that this might be Steve Sarkisian’s “last chance to show he can get it done in Seattle.” That seems a bit extreme to me. For the team and fans, the goal is, and should be, to improve upon three consecutive 7-6 seasons, but even if the team falls short of those lofty goals this season, it seems premature to be talking seriously about Sarkisian’s job security.

A quick look at UW’s preseason opponents from ESPN.com’s Kevin Gemmell, highlighted of course by the Aug. 31 visit by Boise State at brand-new Husky Stadium (anyone excited for that one?).

A bit more on Boise State: Chris Petersen comes in at No. 3 in Stewart Mandel’s list of top college coaches. Petersen is 84-8 entering his eighth season in Boise. No Pac-12 coaches were included on Mandel’s “best” list, but USC’s Lane Kiffin was among the five worst.

Here is a Pac-12 recruiting roundup after a string of recent commits. For UW, four-star receiver Erik Brown projects as a “high-impact guy.”

And, finally, “Hardcore Husky” takes a look back at the UW-USC game from 1991.
