Several Stanford defenders, including star linebacker Shayne Skov, went down with apparent injuries in the second half of the Cardinal’s 31-28 victory over Washington late Saturday night at Stanford Stadium.

UW coach Steve Sarkisian wasn’t buying the injuries.

“Their defensive-line coach (ex-UW assistant Randy Hart) was telling them to sit down,” Sarkisian told KJR afterward. “I guess that’s how we play here at Stanford, so we’ll have to prepare for that next time. At some point, we’ll get repaid for it. That never serves a purpose for us, and we’ll never do that.”

Skov was asked about his injury.

“Took a shot. It’s football. Sometimes you get hit,” he told reporters. “I’m fine, but needed a moment to take care of it, but I’m good to go.”

—- Larry Stone writes that the buzz about UW is deserved.

—- The Huskies dropped just one spot in the AP poll to No. 16. They’re No. 19 in the coaches’ poll.

ESPN’s “College GameDay” is coming to town for the first time. That three-hour show will kick off at 6 a.m. Saturday (with segments also filmed from the set Friday afternoon). I’d expect the set to be constructed on the west side of Husky Stadium, in the open balcony, with Lake Washington as the backdrop. I’ll pass along if I hear anything definitive, of course.

— From The News Tribune: The lasting image of UW’s loss will be what happened first Saturday night.

—- From The UW Daily: A Husky heartbreak.

—- From Sports Press Northwest: Keith Price was brilliant, but it still wasn’t enough.

— For Stanford, it was about “growth.”

—- Oregon routed Colorado 57-16 to remain undefeated.

Marcus Mariota has yet to play in the fourth quarter this season.
