Morning links: Harrington and Thursday Night Football

In today's paper we have a profile of Keith Harrington, the freshman running back who is racking up touchdowns for Washington State.

Read that here. Also check out our practice report from yesterday's Thursday Night Football underclassmen scrimmage. … You will be less informed about Luke Falk than your friends if you don't read Jeff Nusser and Brian Anderson's examination of the quarterback's performance to date. … Stefanie Loh at the Seattle Times wrote a profile of WSU kicker Erik Powell. … Friend of SportsLink Coug-a-Sutra wrote about tomorrow's game.

Elsewhere in the "Conference of Champions" …

-- The Huskies missed 30 tackles last week. They would like to miss fewer.

-- Anu Solomon is "questionable" for Arizona's game at Stanford. That's bad.

-- Arizona State won't have a prayer against UCLA unless it can play mistake-free football.

-- Cal running back Daniel Lasco expects to play against the Cougars tomorrow.

-- Seems like a lot of people think Colorado has a pretty good shot against Oregon. I remain skeptical.

-- Ken Goe's post starts with Oregon and ends with Mike Leach. How did he get from one to the other? Maybe you can help me figure it out.

-- Oregon State's starting tight end (an Evergreen State native) is out for the season.

-- It's not really all that shocking that Barry Sanders Jr. is good at football.

-- What makes UCLA's freshman quarterback so good?

-- Is USC still the Pac-12 favorite?

-- Utah has a shot to be special, says Gordon Monson.
