I CAME AWAY from the Crimson and Gray Game quite impressed with the play of young Cougar quarterbacks Luke Falk and Peyton Bender. Both signal callers showcased a variety of strengths and a good command of the Air Raid. Although QB play headlined the day, there were three other takeaways I think will be more important for Washington State in 2015.

PULLMAN -- Following a soggy Thursday practice in Pullman, Washington State coach Mike Leach weighed in on the emergence of a little-known defensive back, had high praise for third-year running back Jamal Morrow and pinpointed the area of WSU's defense where he's seen the most improvement.

PULLMAN — Friday's session served as the normal Sunday practice for Washington State, which is to say it was full of special teams work and a short team session. But outside receivers coach Dennis Simmons shed some interesting light on a number of fronts, including a little competition that's going on between the Cougs' outside and inside receivers…

HONOLULU - The game between Washington and Hawai'i is the classic 'everything to gain, nothing to lose' matchup between two teams seemingly going in opposite directions. Problem is, the dichotomy isn't just refering to one program. The Warriors have to win this game to legitimize their BCS bowl run; the Huskies have nothing to lose because they haven't gone bowling since 2002.

SEATTLE - The 100th Apple Cup between Washington and Washington State is usually played with mroe than just in-state bragging rights at stake. This Saturday, however, that's all there is.

SEATTLE - Well, the Washington Huskies are officially out of another post-season for the fifth-straight year and will have a losing record for their fourth-straight season - a school record. With the program headed backwards in the win-loss column, is it safe to say that Tyrone Willingham is coaching for his future these next three weeks? A win over Cal would definitely help his cause.

This week's Dawg Blog sees the Huskies eyeing their first chance for a winning streak since Week One, and that lends for some room for optimism. That, coupled with a matchup with an Oregon State team that is a little banged up after losing to USC, and this game appears to be a lot more intriguing than it might have been a few weeks ago.

SEATTLE - Well, the beat goes on. The Washington Huskies fight like hell, only to find another way to let one slip from their grasp. As frustrating as it is for those sitting in the stands, it's maddening for those playing and coaching on the sidelines. And now UW goes on the road, back to Tyrone Willingham's first head coaching job - Stanford - and there's no margin for error.
