Clean jerseys of wide receivers spell trouble for Huskies’ passing game

The Washington Huskies’ passing game is broken. That fact was evident at 10:48 on Saturday night as Chris Petersen’s Huskies trudged in a sad procession toward the southeast tunnel at Stanford Stadium. As they did, the public address announcer boomed, “When the eastern part of the country wakes up in the morning, they’ll see the final score: Stanford 23, Washington 13!”

Pac-12 football roundup: No. 13 Oregon rallies to defeat Cal 17-7

Justin Herbert threw for 214 yards and a late touchdown to extend his streak of consecutive games with a scoring pass to 33, and No. 13 Oregon overcame an uncharacteristically slow start in a 17-7 victory over California on Saturday night in Eugene.

Three things clear for Huskies after win over Trojans

Fight on? Fight over. With 2:20 left in the fourth quarter of Washington’s 28-14 win over USC on Saturday, UW freshman safety Cameron Williams leaped to secure his second interception of the day. At the edge of his own end zone, Williams tumbled to the turf, sprang up and flipped the football behind his back.

USC quarterback J.T. Daniels out for season with knee injury

Southern California quarterback J.T. Daniels will miss the rest of the season after tearing a ligament in his right knee during the Trojans’ opener. Daniels was hurt on a blitz when his leg twisted while he was being tackled with 27 seconds left in the first half of USC’s 31-23 victory over Fresno State. Daniels started 11 games last season for USC’s first losing team since 2000, and he won a four-way competition for the starting job last month in camp.

Pac-12 roundup: No. 3 Notre Dame rolls to 12-0 season, beats rival USC 24-17

Ian Book passed for 352 yards and Dexter Williams went 52 yards on a go-ahead touchdown run for the Irish. J.T. Daniels passed for 349 yards for the Trojans, who will stay home for the bowl season after losing five of their final six games in a dismaying collapse in their first losing season since 2000.

Pac-12 roundup: No. 21 Utah handles slow start, snow and Colorado 30-7

The 21st-ranked Utah Utes overcame a slow start, sloppy field and a snowstorm to rout the Colorado Buffaloes 30-7. The Utes won despite losing their defensive star Chase Hansen to an ejection in the first half. The Buffaloes lost their sixth straight following a 5-0 start.

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

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.

Pac-12 roundup: Manny Wilkins, N’Keal Harry lead Sun Devils past No. 16 Utah 38-20

Manny Wilkins threw three touchdown passes to N’Keal Harry and Arizona State beat Utah 38-20, knocking the No. 16 Utes out of sole possession of first place in Pac-12 South. The Utes (6-3, 4-3 Pac-12) lost quarterback Tyler Huntley to an apparent shoulder or arm injury in the third quarter. The loss snapped Utah’s four-game winning streak and dropped the Utes into a first-place tie with Arizona in the clogged Pac-12 South.

Pac-12 power rankings: An old switcheroo atop power rankings after instant classic between Washington, Oregon

To fully grasp the magnitude of a major college football game, perhaps it’s necessary to sit in the back of a London drinking hole on a Saturday night and observe a collection of Washington and Oregon fans – sworn enemies in most cases – join forces to convince a bartender he ought to keep the joint open for another 10-15 minutes so they can watch a high-profile Pac-12 showdown to the bitter end.
