— Our story in today’s newspaper focuses on Washington’s offensive line, and what they’ve done to get better.

— The Seattle Times: Bellarmine Prep alum Sefo Liufau is excited to lead Colorado against the Huskies.

    Stanford reminds me of the 1980-90’s Huskies. A team built around a big, fast,experienced defense, a dominating, experienced OL and Special Teams.

    Much like Auburn and LSU, Stanford proved yet again – you don’t have to play “duck-ball” to beat Oregon…You have to recruit top-tier OL/DL/DB’s on a consistent basis.
