SEATTLE – An inability to consistently snap the ball properly to the quarterback might lead to a shakeup on the Washington Huskies’ offensive line.

Fifth-year senior Mike Criste, who started the Huskies’ last two games at right guard, said on Wednesday that he’s been practicing this week at center, with Colin Tanigawa sliding over to play guard.
