Good morning. Washington offensive players and coaches — and coach Steve Sarkisian — are available to media after today’s practice, which is where we’re headed in a few hours. But these hours are spent on links. So here we go.

Here’s our story in today’s newspaper about Hau’oli Kikaha and UW’s efforts to generate a more consistent pass rush. Also, a clarification: UW ranks 14th in the nation in sacks per game (3 even), not total sacks. The Huskies are tied with five other teams for 11th in that category.

— The Seattle Times also evaluates UW’s pass rush.

— The UW Daily has some Pac-12 power rankings.

— UW running back Bishop Sankey was named one of 16 Maxwell Award Finalists on Tuesday.

— Husky fans are sure to circulate this story from the Oregonian, which published an anonymous letter from a former Ducks player who is not pleased with the behavior of UO fans at Autzen Stadium.

— Colorado’s former starting quarterback is adjusting to being the backup.

— USC’s cornerbacks figure to be busy against pass-heavy Oregon State.

— UCLA’s offense is having trouble finding balance.

— Utah needs to force more turnovers.

— The son of a former USC star is preparing to face his father’s former team.

— An Arizona safety is filling up the stat sheet.

— Where will Arizona State stars Will Sutton and Marion Grice go in the NFL Draft?

— A new week means new players for California’s battered defense to chase around.

— Bad news for Stanford, which lost defensive end Ben Gardner to a season-ending injury.
