  • The Huskies engineered a great come-from-behind victory over Oregon Sunday, and that rough four-game losing streak grows smaller in the rear-view mirror with each passing day. Percy Allen writes about Donaven Dorsey's emergence as a key three-point threat for the Dawgs.

  • Danny Shelton is having a great start to the Senior Bowl, and Hau'oli Kikaha is no slouch, either.

  • Not every Husky is getting a bump heading into the NFL Draft, though.
    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Two NFL scouts I&#39;ve talked to weren&#39;t convinced Shaq or Peters are first-rounders.

  • That's just one opinion, though. Sports Illustrated's Peter King likes Shaq and Peters to both go in the first round, and NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah sees Shelton, Peters and Shaq going with the No. 5, 31 and 42 picks, respectively.

  • One of Chris Petersen's biggest targets its set to make his commitment public tomorrow.
