KShell asks the question. Why is there no Keith Price for Heisman talk? The Washington Huskies are averaging 37.0 points per game despite losing quarterback Jake Locker to the NFL Draft. Since the 2000 season the winners of the Heisman Trophy have played in the national championship game in 9 of 11 winners.
Chris Polk had two long touchdown runs in the first half and a UW record-tying, 100-yard rushing day. But Washington's defense could not contain a runaway Stanford running game. That and a key interception returned for a touchdown summed up the 22nd-ranked Huskies' 65-21 loss to the No. 7 Cardinal Saturday night at Stanford Stadium.
It's been a long time since the Washington Huskies have been ranked at all, and much, much longer still when they have been ranked in the BCS - yet one is hard-pressed to think of a time where a ranked UW team has gone into a game as a three-touchdown Dawg. But that is exactly the case as they travel to meet up with No. 7 Stanford in prime time Saturday night on national television.
Huskies beat blogger KShell reports on Washington Huskies gameday for Week 8 versus the Stanford Cardinal. Huskies fans are excited about wide receiver James Johnson. Thankfully, Johnson didn't transfer and is having a great season. For the year Johnson has 22 receptions for 287 yards(13.0 YPC) with three touchdowns.
Senior writer Matt Larkin points out University of Washington Huskies hoops freshman and phenom Tony Wroten Jr. had arthroscopic surgery on his knee this week. But Coach Lorenzo Romar appeared on Seattle sports radio station 950 KJR today and squelched any rumors that may be out there with regards to Wroten's 2011 playing status.
The Pac-12 has been known for great quarterbacks, but I’m here to tell you a story taking place in 2011 that hasn’t been told. In a conference rife with quarterback play, one athlete has flown under the radar without much attention at all. The story I am about to tell you doesn’t have any hidden motives and it is not agenda driven. I am not a Washington homer...
And you thought the Kettle Corn was expensive. Diehard Washington Huskies football fans have an opportunity to buy pieces of memorabilia from the soon-to-be-remodeled Husky Stadium through an online, fixed-price auction on the school’s official athletics website. But this doesn’t appear to be an everyman type of fire-sale. At least not based on a look at the items still remaining...

Huskies insider Brandon Choate brings us a statistical comparison between Washington Huskies Keith Price and Stanford Cardinal Andrew Luck. He grades them on completion percentage, passing yards, touchdowns, interceptions and rushing. Who has the upper hand?
Saturday's tilt in Stanford Stadium surely looks to be the toughest game the Card have faced thus far in 2011. The Washington Huskies will fly into California as a top 25 team and could give the Card their first real test of the fall.
This is the best Husky team since 2000 and it’s not a contest. I love everything about this team, and it starts with Keith Price. We celebrate the Huskies in this week before the reality of playing Stanford crushes our hopes and dreams.
Shout out to Utah for surprising Pitt on the road. Also, Fig Jam and I react in a mature fashion to the second injury to an Oregon key player...
How much better are the Huskies than the Cougars this year?
Last year, with Jake Locker at quarterback, the Dawgs were a touchdown better – mainly because the Cougs could not tackle Locker or Chris Polk.
But the teams seem to have gone in opposite directions in the first six weeks of this season, mainly because of their quarterback situations.
