Greetings from Montlake, where we’re about an hour and a half away from the 106th meeting between Washington and Washington State.
As usual, we have our three keys to a possible UW victory. They are:
1. Give Keith Price time to throw … and keep him off the ground — According to a tweet from Sports Radio KJR’s Dave Mahler, Keith Price will, indeed, start at quarterback in his final game at Husky Stadium.

Steve Sarkisian met with reporters, as usual, after Wednesday’s practice. Here’s what he said.

Inevitably, great teams have the ability to go on the road and beat really good football teams and beat potentially great football teams, and we just haven’t quite gotten there yet.
