Ben Burr-Kirven an unassuming leader for No. 16 Washington ahead of Apple Cup clash with Washington State

UPDATED: Thu., Nov. 22, 2018, 7:02 p.m.

Linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven might be the most unassuming of all the impact players on the standout defense for No. 16 Washington. He doesn’t seek attention and he doesn’t celebrate every play he makes. All he does is make tackles. Burr-Kirven is No. 2 in the country in tackles heading into Friday’s Apple Cup against No. 7 Washington State.

No. 17 Washington can’t afford stumble against Oregon State ahead of Apple Cup showdown

UPDATED: Fri., Nov. 16, 2018, 11:22 p.m.

No. 17 Washington still has a legitimate shot at a more than acceptable consolation prize despite the disappointment of being knocked out of the College Football Playoff conversation by midseason. The Rose Bowl still carries significant meaning in these parts. The Huskies would find themselves in the Pac-12 title game playing for a chance to go to Pasadena as the conference champion with two more victories, starting with their game against Oregon State on Saturday.

Jake Browning rebounds from benching for No. 20 Washington

UPDATED: Mon., Nov. 5, 2018, 9:15 p.m.

Jake Browning was angry and probably had every right to be. After four seasons as Washington’s starting quarterback, the last thing Browning expected was to be benched because of the Huskies’ offensive woes. Instead of letting the benching a week ago against California fester, Browning responded as Washington hoped, throwing one touchdown and running for another in the Huskies’ 27-23 victory over Stanford on Saturday.
