Ernie Kent will coach in the rivalry between Washington and Washington State for the first time today.

The teams will play at noon in Alaska Airlines Arena and the game will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks. In the paper today we have a story in advance of the game. Percy Allen previews the game from the UW perspective.

There was a lot of news out of WSU yesterday so we've got plenty of links to share below.

-- WSU released its fiscal numbers for the past season and the Cougars are running a deficit. But athletic director Bill Moos says the current investments will pay off eventually.

-- Safety Beau Glover has given up football, for now at least, to pursuit another opportunity.

-- Mike Leach's contract was extended as expected.

-- A former football player is suing WSU.

-- Howie Stalwick has a story on the deficit and lawsuit as well.

-- Clancy Pendergast is once again emerging as a top candidate for the defensive coordinator position.

-- The Pac-12's big news today is the suspension of one of Oregon's key receivers.
