Even with the Huskies off on Saturday, we might have learned a bit more about their past and future.
It's hard to read much of anything into Washington State's win over outmanned Portland State -- except that it leaves UW as the only Pac-10 team without a win. However, it should also be pointed out that UW also is the only Pac-10 schools that hasn't played an unranked team yet.
Still, Oregon's loss to Boise State combined with the Ducks shaky performace last week in Purdue just puts UW's season-opening loss in an even darker light.
On the other hand, BYU's rout of Wyoming reminds that the Huskies are the only team to hang close to the Cougars so far.
Never miss a local story.
Looking ahead, Georgia's sound beating of Arizona State shows that the Sun Devils don't seem to be bringing any super team to Husky Stadium.
And while Arizona's rebound at UCLA redeems the Wildcats a bit, it also reinforces just how bad the Bruins might be. And Florida's easy time in Tennessee also continues to take shine off of UCLA's opening win against the Vols. Yet, Tulsa's demolition of New Mexico raises some red flags to the Lobos' win over Arizona last week.
Meanwhile, Notre Dame was competitive, but not compelling in its loss to unranked Michigan State.
And finally, it's hard to know what to make of Stanford's Jekyll and Hyde win over San Jose State.
But we're sure to find out more next Saturday night when the Cardinal comes to Husky Stadium.
