Our story in today’s newspaper focuses on the rise of freshmen defensive ends Marcus Farria and Joe Mathis, who Steve Sarkisian said will continue to work into the mix defensively.

We also have this college basketball column, taking a look at the impact of the new hand-checking rules as Washington prepares for its exhibition game against Central Washington. That game tips off at 7 p.m.

    Nice writeup on the progress and potential of Mathis and Farria, CC. The more they contribute, the fresher the D-line will be throughout the game. Hopefully it leads to more pressure on the QB. That will generate turnovers.

    Agree backspin!
