FROM PASADENA — Before we fly back to Seattle, there are links to parse from Washington’s 41-31 loss here to UCLA last night. So parse we shall.

— Here’s our game story, focusing on another high-stakes loss for the Huskies.

And here’s the notebook, leading with some details about Keith Price’s injury.

More on Price, and more from coach Steve Sarkisian.

In Pac-12 action today …

Washington State (4-5, 2-4 in Pac-12) at Arizona (6-3, 3-3), 11 a.m., Pac-12 Networks — Arizona is ready for the pass-happy Cougars. A victory would go a long way for WSU.

Utah (4-5, 1-5) at Oregon (8-1, 5-1), 1 p.m., FOX Sports 1 — Utah heads into this game without its starting quarterback. Here are five things to watch from the Oregonian.

California (1-9, 0-7) at Colorado (3-6, 0-6), 2:30 p.m., Pac-12 Networks — The Bears suspended a player who started a fight in the locker room. Something has to give in this game.

Stanford (8-1, 6-1) at USC (7-3, 4-2), 5 p.m., ABC — The Cardinal remind Ed Orgeron of a strong SEC team. This game should be close again.

Oregon State (6-3, 4-2) at Arizona State (7-2, 5-1), 6:30 p.m., Pac-12 Networks — What to watch for from a Beavers perspective. An ASU walk-on is backing up a request he made to play more.

    My “gripe” of the game: Like every other Husky fan; I hated the turn-overs and penalties – BUT – what I am SO tired of seeing us do is “go for it” on a 4th and 2 from OUR (OUR) 40!!!

    There was 10+ minutes left in the game at that time and we have an offense designed to score 3 times in 10 minutes! PUNT THE DAMN BALL SARK! FIVE years into this thing and Sark still believes in giving the opponent the short field. On the very next play, UCLA scored a TD!

    Put 100 coaches in a room, blind-fold them, and lay this scenario out: It’s 4th and 2 from YOUR 40. You are on the road, down by 10 and you have a quick strike offense; what will you do; punt or go for it? I bet 99 would say PUNT. The 1 guy who would say “go for it” of course would be Sark.

  2. Turnovers and penalties are game killers. However there seems to be a lack of motovation or excitement both on the field and the sidelines. Our defense can be sufficient at times; but how often do we have two or three defenders around a receiver and they just let them catch the ball.
