Morning links: Getting to know Peyton Bender

Peruse today's Washington State news before joining our live chat at 11 a.m.

Yesterday was a busy day on the WSU beat, and that's good for me because I had plenty to write, and good for you if you like reading that sort of thing. In the paper we have a feature story about quarterback Peyton Bender, my Pac-12 Power Rankings and a game story from the men's basketball team's win last night. Jim Allen wrote a story about the women's basketball team's overseas connections. And we also ran this Christian Caple story about Washington's impressive defensive backfield. Adam Jude wrote about UW's secondary as well.

On the blog we have a story about how WSU's players manage to focus on academics and football and a post about Luke Falk's nomination for the Burlsworth Trophy. We also have some postgame videos of Ernie Kent, some WSU players and the box score from the basketball game. Stefanie Loh wrote about the Pelluers and their ties to both UW and WSU. Gabe Marks is not a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, and does not seem particularly pleased about that.
