- As most of you have undoubtedly already seen, the Huskies are ranked in the AP preseason poll for the first time since 2003. Kevin Gemmell says that the ranking is the result of Chris Petersen's presence:
Washington should be pleased to be ranked, considering it lost its starting quarterback, running back and Mackey Award-winning tight end. That ranking is a clear reflection of Chris Petersen's presence, because a Pac-12 team losing that much offensive firepower usually doesn't get the benefit of the doubt with voters.
- Speaking of the Pac-12 Blog, Ted Miller published his preview of the Huskies.
- Christian Caple has a recap with some "very unofficial" statistics following Washington's scrimmage on Saturday. GoHuskies.com has a photo gallery from the event, and posted a short video of the Dawgs in their sharp new uniforms.

- With less than two weeks until kickoff at Hawaii, Adam Jude says that the battle between Cyler Miles, Jeff Lindquist and Troy Williams to become Washington's starting quarterback continues to be wide open.

- Bud Withers looks at Steve Sarkisian's USC Trojans, noting that Sark's No. 1 priority must be managing a roster devastated by scholarship restrictions.
- The Tennessee Titans finished their second preseason game last weekend. The main takeaways seem to be that Jake Locker is showing signs of definite improvement, and that Bishop Sankey needs to keep a tighter grip on the rock.
- Love is in the air between the Tampa Bay coaching staff and Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
