Another morning has arrived, which means another batch of links to start your day. Let’s get to it.

— First of all, in case you missed it yesterday, it was announced that Washington’s Oct. 19 game at Arizona State will kickoff at 3 p.m. and air on the Pac-12 Networks. Two day games in a row. We shall praise the deadline gods.

— Our story in today’s newspaper takes a look at the lopsided nature of Oregon’s 9-game winning streak in its series against Washington, and ponders whether the Huskies have enough defensive firepower to finally put an end to the string of blowouts and piles of yardage.

— Had a few updates yesterday — one on the health of Keith Price’s thumb, one on Darrell Daniels moving to tight end and another item taking a look at how the Huskies are trying to patch up the holes in their kick coverage team.

— Adam Jude of The Seattle Times writes more about Price and how he’s handling practice this week. Larry Stone writes that a UW victory would make the rest of the nation take notice of the Huskies.

— Ken Goe of the Oregonian chimes in on the Steve Sarkisian/David Shaw situation.

— The UW Daily writes about Keith Price and Kevin Smith’s resurgent senior seasons.

— Yahoo’s Pat Forde writes that the Pac-12 is the most exciting conference in the nation right now, and writes that Washington is “working on its best season since 2000.”

— A great look at Oregon’s starting center from Jason Quick of the Oregonian.

— Despite the Ducks’ recent dominance in this series, acrimony still reigns.

— Washington’s next opponent, Arizona State, will benefit during recruiting from playing in Texas this week.

— Arizona cornerback Shaq Richardson is eager to prove himself in front of the school — USC — that didn’t want him.

— USC’s game against the Wildcats is a pivotal one.

— UCLA’s starting center is all of a sudden the man in the middle of the Bruins’ front.

— California’s left tackle has the pleasant task of trying to block UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr this week.

— Utah wants to be better on third downs.

— Colorado is preparing for the challenge of defending Arizona State running back Marion Grice.

— Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion will challenge Washington State’s secondary.
