- Here’s a transcript of Chris Petersen’s press conference from yesterday in which he wore a t-shirt that read “Stay Positive”. He announced that Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed, and Jordan Miller are all week-to-week with injuries sustained at Oregon while WR Quinten Pounds will miss the rest of the season with yet another knee injury this time sustained at UCLA.
- Jon Wilner has his midseason all Pac-12 squads (1st and 2nd teams) and there are 9 Dawgs between the two lists. That ties Oregon for the most of any team.
- The AP midseason All-American teams are out and ILB Ben Burr-Kirven makes it onto the 1st team while S Taylor Rapp secures a spot on the 2nd team.
- Wilner also includes his bowl projections with an in-depth look at whether the conference is still eliminated from The College Football Playoff and includes a rosy forecast for UW.
- Brandon Huffman at 247 ($) has an interview with incoming DT recruit Noa Ngalu about why he chose the Huskies, his plans until getting to campus, and recruiting one of his teammates to join him in Seattle.
- Huffman ($) also talked to incoming DT recruit Jacob Bandes who is still planning on graduating early to be on campus by January and make an impact next fall.
- Ex-Husky Kevin King had a clutch interception late in the 4th quarter for the Green Bay Packers last night which gave Aaron Rodgers the ball back and the opportunity to win it.
- The game time was announced for the UW road trip to Cal and it will be yet another not night game for the Dawgs.

- Paul Allen passed away yesterday at 65 from complications of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and while his impact on sports in the Northwest was much more related to pro sports, he had a significant impact on the University of Washington overall.
My favorite Paul Allen story:— Mike Baker (@ByMikeBaker) October 15, 2018
47 years ago, Allen got banned from UW's computer-science lab for hogging teletype machines and swiping an acoustic coupler.
UW's massive computer-science school is now named for him. https://t.co/7PzxP1jul9 pic.twitter.com/9qJ3F3gST5
