"As the Arizona game proved, Polk has become more of the complete back he wanted to be before trying the NFL. But he admits owning Washington’s career rushing record and being considered the best back in UW football history is supremely enticing.“I really haven’t thought about that yet. I’m onto Oregon now,” he said of his 2012 plans. “That’s going to be a tough decision. I owe it to my teammates not to look ahead."

"Kelly said that the two have never really talked X’s and O’s, but they’ve spent a good amount of time together. “We’ve [had] to spend a lot of time together because of our whirl wind boy band tour that the Pac-12 makes us go on in the summer time. I think everyone in our league gets along really well. From Dennis and Mike and the guys that have been in the league for a little bit to the newer guys.”"

"“I think the biggest thing with these guys is to eliminate the big plays and to force turnovers,” Sarkisian said. “Obviously they’re going to get their yards, they’re a great football team, but when you win the turnover battle, you can oftentimes win games, so I think the biggest thing for us is the turnover battle and eliminating big plays.”"

"While Oregon’s spread, zone-read attack represents one of the biggest challenges of the season, the struggling UW defense has a few factors working as it heads into a matchup with the mighty Ducks. Experience, speed and depth could help on that side of the ball as the Huskies try to keep pace with Oregon on Saturday afternoon."

"Oregon is No. 1 in the conference and No. 4 in the nation in rushing offense (309 yards per game). Washington’s defense is best against the run. Of course, that requires qualification. Good running teams — Nebraska and Stanford — ran all over the Huskies. And, as a whole, the Huskies defense had been rotten, surrendering 430 yards and 33.4 points per game. If Washington is to have any chance, it must 1. find a way to at least slow down the Ducks running game; 2. force turnovers. Time for coordinator Nick Holt to earn his paycheck."
