No major news out of the UW media briefings today.
However, UW coach Tyrone Willingham said the 35-yard touchdown pass that was the final score in the Huskies' Apple Cup loss was the result of a miscommunication for which the coaches take responsibility.
No new injuries appear on the UW medical report. However, defensive back Jordan Murchison (ankle) and linebacker Donald Butler (knee) remain questionable.
The Huskies return to practice Tuesday, travel to Hawaii on Friday and will remain in Honolulu for one free day Sunday before flying home Monday.
We also got time today with both quarterbacks: Jake Locker and Hawaii's Colt Brennan. That will be the main topic of my Tuesday story. And while Brennan has dark spots in his history, he has seemed pretty straighforward and likable in my couple of dealings with him.
And there's no questioning him on the field, where he has broken or tied 29 NCAA records including career touchdown passes (126), TDs responsible for (141), and points responsible for (856). In 36 career games, he has led the Warriors to 50 points or more 10 times. Hawaii is 24-9 with Brennan as its starter.
"He's a great quarterback," Locker said. "I have a lot of respect for what he's doing over there. He's a very confident passer, very accurate and has been very successful in the offense that he has been put in."
Of course, Locker has some accomplishments of his own, and another big one may be on the way Saturday. With 910 rushing yards, Locker already has become the top-running Pacific-10 quarterback of any single season of the modern era and the top rushing UW quarterback ever. And 90 more rushing yards at Aloha Stadium would push him to the 1,000-yard mark.
