Notes and links the morning after the Huskies’ stunning 27-26 loss at Arizona on Saturday:

First and 10 at the 44-yard line, 1:28 left: Miles takes a knee, 1-yard loss.

Arizona timeout at about 1:25.

Second and 11 at the 43, 1:25: Miles wastes 3 seconds and takes a knee, 2-yard loss.

Third and 13 at the 41, 0:43: Miles wastes 3 seconds and takes a knee, 2-yard loss.

Fourth and 13 at the 41, 0:01: Miles takes a final knee.

The worst-case scenario is the Huskies would’ve had to get in punt formation and snap the ball — with the clock running. The game ends on a special-teams play that punter Korey Durkee can easily make impossible for the Wildcats to return. Or he could’ve taken the long snap and run backward until the clock hit zero.
