Morning links: Huskies have holes to fix before playing ASU

After a disheartening loss at Oregon, the Huskies are back at practice this morning in preparation for Arizona State. And coach Chris Petersen will meet with the media later this afternoon, as usual on a Monday. For now, links:

--- Looked in all the usual locations, and it appears many sports books have not yet set a betting line on Washington's game Saturday against Arizona State at Husky Stadium (7:45 p.m., ESPN). That might have something to do with the uncertainty of quarterback Cyler Miles' health. Perhaps we'll find out more about that this afternoon, though I wouldn't count on it.

--- Here is the Associated Press top 25 poll, in which the Huskies did not receive a vote. Oregon moved up to No. 6, and Arizona State is up to No. 14. UW did receive five votes in the USA Today coaches poll.

--- An interesting note at the bottom of this story about Arizona State being 8-0 against the spread in its last eight games against the Huskies.

--- The Huskies have some problems with their running game (and note that ASU is listed as an early 2.5-point favorites in some places).

--- LB Shaq Thompson, CB Marcus Peters and DT Danny Shelton appear in Rob Rang's latest mock draft.

--- ASU quarterback Mike Bercovici keeps getting better.

--- Would the College Football Playoff selection committee take Michigan State over Oregon?

--- Oregon State likely lost a receiver for the season.

--- Utah's pass rush is coming for USC.
