Our Tuesday tradition of driving into Montlake to watch the first 20 minutes of Washington’s football practice is nearly upon us. Until then, here are some links to help you power through another morning.

— Here are a few updates: one on Keith Price’s thumb, one on UW coach Steve Sarkisian’s final thoughts on the Kevin Smith play, and a video and transcription of Sarkisian’s Monday press conference.

— The UW Daily writes that the Huskies are putting Stanford behind them and focusing on Oregon.

— Adam Jude of The Seattle Times writes that UW is starting to resemble Oregon, and that’s just fine with Sarkisian. (And hey, what do you know, we plan to cover this topic later in the week.)

— Missed this yesterday, but our Todd Dybas had a story about former UW receiver Jermaine Kearse continuing to excel at the NFL level.

— Husky Stadium made this list of the top five stadiums in college football, as compiled by USA Today.

Keith Price’s NFL stock is on the rise after his performance last weekend.

— CougCenter writes a bit about the lunacy surrounding the GameDay flag debate.

— The Oregonian takes a sneak peek at the Huskies.

— Husky fans will surely flock to their TVs to view the re-airing of this classic from the UW-Oregon rivalry. Hint: it was played in 1994.

— An Arizona State safety was impressive in his first start.

— Colorado and Arizona State are both looking to bounce back from losses when they play each other this week.

— A Utah tight end is scheduled to have wrist surgery.

— Oregon State doesn’t plan to go away from receiver Brandin Cooks any time soon.

USC denies that it has contacted Tony Dungy or the Denver Broncos about its coaching vacancy.

— UCLA is a big favorite against visiting California, but the Bruins don’t want to look past the Bears.

— A Cal starting cornerback will have knee surgery.

We’ll be back later with interviews and such after practice.
