- As always Chris Petersen held his weekly press conference yesterday and Chris Fetters of Dawgman has a transcript and video of the presser. On why Dwayne Washington did not travel with the team to Tempe, Petersen said Washington has a chronic leg issue that flared up last week. Petersen also said Elijah Qualls has been slower than they expected in recovering from his ankle injury, but does hope to have him back before the season ends.
- Erik Erickson of The Daily writes about UW's frustrating offensive performance against the Sun Devils. Hard to believe a team that racked up 550 yards of offense only managed 17 points.
- Game notes, including a depth chart, for this Saturday's game in Corvallis can be found here. This will be the 100th time the Beavs and Dawgs have collided. Also of note is that Jaydon Mickens has now moved up to the #2 spot in career receptions behind only Reggie Williams.
- Kick off of the 108th Apple Cup will take place at 12:30 on Black Friday and the game will air on FOX:

- Citing the current playoff situation of the Pac-12, Sports Illustrated's Lindsay Schnell says the conference must rethink its 9-game conference schedule if it wants to stay relevant.
- Marcus Peters is doing his best to make a case for Defensive Rookie of the Year. If you're in to film study, the Chiefs' SBNation site has a very thorough break down of Peters.
- Paul Myerberg says Washington is the program whose future concerns coaches in the Pac-12 the most:
And if you asked P12 HCs which program's future concerns them the most, you'd get a lot of responses of "Washington." They see it.— Paul Myerberg (@PaulMyerberg) November 14, 2015
- At half time on Saturday the Huskies bowl chances were looking pretty good as they held a 14 point lead over ASU ( and it wasn't even as close as the score indicated) and have a favorable match up this week against the worst team in the conference. And then the 2nd half took place. The AP writes about how Washington no longer has any wiggle room when it comes to post-season play. It's win out or stay home for the Dawgs, something a Chris Petersen-coached team has never done.
- Seriously, if you're not watching the volleyball team this season you're missing out. The VolleyDawgs have now moved up to #2 in the latest AVCA poll behind a USC team they steam rolled last month:
