Huskies morning links: Hau’oli Kikaha on his reluctant friendship with Marcus Mariota

Hau’oli Kikaha introduced himself, reluctantly, to the star in Hollywood.

UW’s sack specialist and the standout quarterback then got to talking poolside at Loews Hollywood Hotel this summer.

Turns out, Kikaha and Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota had a lot in common.

“He’s such a good guy,” Kikaha said. “I can’t say anything bad about him.”

That won’t slow Kikaha — the FBS leader in sacks and tackles for loss — from trying to take down the Oregon quarterback Saturday in Eugene. Mariota had perhaps the best game of his career in leading the Ducks to a victory at Husky Stadium last year.

“I thought we did pretty good on defense,” Kikaha said, “and he was just taking little windows and throwing it.”
