Morning links: Huskies open as 53-point favorites over Idaho State

The Huskies (2-0) have opened as 53-point favorites against Idaho State (2-0) this Saturday. Kickoff is set for noon at Husky Stadium for a broadcast on the Pac-12 Networks.

A couple quick notes on the UW depth chart released this morning:

Jaydon Mickens is officially listed as the starter at slot receiver, after being listed as “or” alongside John Ross for the first two games. Mickens has 17 receptions UW’s first two games, most on the team, after having 20 in all of 2012.

Princeton Fuimaono is listed as the starter at outside linebacker, ahead of Travis Feeney.

— Not sure if it means anything, but John Timu is listed as the starter at middle linebacker. We’ll try to get an update on his injured shoulder today.
