After suffering its first Pac-12 loss against Arizona State last week, Washington will look to bounce back against the Washington State Cougars on Saturday. The Huskies haven’t lost back-to-back games all season.
As a trial looms, the NFL agrees to a settlement with former San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid. The players had protested during the national anthem in 2016.
Disappointed by their finish at last year’s Mat Classic, Yelm wrestlers Chayton Miller and Steven Reyes are looking to finish their careers on top, which could help the second-ranked Tornados earn a state team title.
Washington State forward Robert Franks was injured the first time Washington played the Cougars this season. But he’ll be on the court Saturday after leading Washington State to two Pac-12 wins last week.
It was a busier first day of the state wrestling championships than usual. Because of the weather-related cancellations of regional tournaments throughout the state, this Mat Classic was expanded to 32-wrestler brackets.
The NFL’s settlement of its grievances with Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid shows the league that basically prints money can buy anything. Including silence, first on concussions and now on possible collusion.
