The Huskies enter the game on a our-game winning streak, a stretchthat includes a pair o road wins, at Cal and at Colorado. Washington is receiving votes in both polls andenter the week two spots out o the AP Top 25 and our spots out in the coaches’ poll. The UW is No. 25 inthe BCS rankings. The Huskies are already bowl-eligible, but will presumably have to wait until the ollowingweekend, ater the various conerence champion games have been played, to nd out where they’ll be heading.
In its current our-game winning streak, the Huskies have out-scored their opponents 113to 48, or an average o about 28-12 ... a win over WSU would mean that the UW’s regular-season win totalwould have gone up or a ourth straight year (5-7 in 2009, 6-6 in 2010, 7-5 in 2011, 8-4 in 2012) ... sophomoreTB Bishop Sankey notched the UW’s ourth straight 1,000-yard season, passing that benchmark in the winover Utah ... Sankey is the 11th dierent Husky to rush or 1,000 yards and his 1,150 yards are ninth-mostin UW single-season history ... Sankey’s 13 rushing TDS this season are tied or th-most in UW history... only a true sophomore, Austin Seerian-Jenkins already has 99 career receptions or 1,289 yards and 11touchdowns, all school records ... additionally, Seerian-Jenkins’ 58 receptions this year are a school recordor the position and are tied or most in the nation among TEs ... Seerian-Jenkins, who played on the UWbasketball team as a reshman, also saw action at deensive end in the Huskies’ last two games ... the Huskiescurrently rank No. 9 in the nation (second in the Pac-12) in pass deense with just 174.27 yards allowed pergame (Arizona leads at 174.18) ... Washington had seven true reshmen see action in the season-opener: PKorey Durkee, LS Ryan Masel, WR Jaydon Mickens, WR Kendyl Taylor, S Shaq Thompson, DE Pio Vatuvei andTB Erich Wilson II ... two more true reshmen made their debut vs. Portland State: WR Marvin Hall and OGShane Brostek, who started vs. Stanord ... Cory Littleton became the 10th Husky reshman to play when hestarted at Oregon ... a total o 16 players made their UW debut vs. San Diego State while ve more playersmade their collegiate debut in the game at LSU ... against Portland State, an additional 10 players got onthe eld or the rst time and one more did so at Oregon, meaning that 32 Huskies have played in their rstUW games this season.

In a requently-told tale, Husky ootball coach Steve Sarki-sian recalls his days as a young assistant traveling to ace Washington at HuskyStadium. During the drive across Lake Washington, with the iconic home o theDawgs towering ahead, Sarkisian marveled aloud at the city, the stadium and theatmosphere surrounding the UW program. A decade or so later, Sarkisian is incharge o the Washington ootball program he was admiring that day. And in justtwo years, he has re-established the kind o tough, exciting environment that wasthen, and is again now, so closely associated with the Husky ootball. The 2011season, Sarkisian’s third as head coach, provided more highlights or his up-and-coming program. The Husky oense posted one o its most prolic seasons ever,scoring 434 points over the course o the season, the most by a UW squad sincethe 1991 national championship team and the second-most in school history. TheHuskies scored nearly 12 more points per game than they did the previous year.They also had marked improvement in passing yards (65 more yards per game)and total oense (47 more yards per game), while the team’s third-down percent-age improved vastly over the previous season, rom 32 to 46 percent. Sarkisiancoached his team to a third straight win over Washington State in the annualApple Cup to remain undeeated against the UW’s in-state rival and to wrap up a7-5 regular-season record and 5-4 mark in the Pac-12 North. The Huskies secureda berth in the Valero Alamo Bowl, the No. 2 game in the Pac-12 bowl lineup. In2010, Sarkisian’s second season in Seattle, the Huskies made another clear steporward. The Dawgs went 7-6 overall and nished third in the Pac-10 Coner-ence with a 5-4 record. Then, in the Holiday Bowl, Washington provided one othe bowl season’s top games, beating an 18th-ranked Nebraska squad, 19-7. Thewin over the Cornhuskers was the last o a series o exciting, gutsy victories in2010. The season included three Husky wins decided on the very last play o thegame (Oregon State, USC and Cal), plus another in which the winning score cameinside the nal minute (WSU). Sarkisian was introduced as the new head coacho the Washington ootball team on Dec. 8, 2008. From the start, Sarkisian madeit clear that he didn’t think it would take long to turn the program around and getit back to the high level o success that UW ootball has enjoyed throughout itshistory. In his rst season, 2009, he seemed to prove that he was right. Washing-ton, which posted a winless season or the rst time in school history the yearbeore Sarkisian signed on, surged to a 5-7 record in 2009, an improvement o vevictories over the previous year. No BCS-conerence school in the nation couldboast such improvement in terms o wins in 2009. And, Sarkisian’s Husky squadpulled o that eat against a schedule that included 10 opponents who ended theseason bowl-eligible. Sarkisian came to the UW with a wealth o experience as aquarterbacks coach and oensive coordinator. His string o success is nearly un-precedented as, during his time at USC, he coached two Heisman Trophy winnersand oversaw one o the nation’s most consistent and dominant oenses. Sarkisianspent 2007 and 2008 as the Trojans’ assistant head coach and oensive coordina-tor. He had also previously served as assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach(2005-06), quarterbacks coach (2002-03) and as an oensive assistant (2001) atUSC, or a total o seven seasons there. During his seven seasons as a mem-ber o the Trojans’ sta, the team posted a combined 74-15 record. As oensivecoordinator, his record was 22-3. Aside rom his various roles at USC, Sarkisianalso spent one season as quarterbacks coach or the Oakland Raiders in 2004 andas QBs coach at El Camino College in Torrance, Cali., in 2000, his rst coachingjob. Sarkisian starred at the quarterback position at the prep, collegiate and prolevels. Ater his standout career at Brigham Young University, he was played orthe Saskatchewan Roughriders o the Canadian Football League or three sea-sons (1997-99). He had a record-setting two-year (1995-96) career at BYU, playingunder legendary coach Lavell Edwards. Sarkisian completed 549-o-824 passes(66.6 percent) or 7,755 yards and 55 touchdowns in his career. His 162.0 careerpassing eciency rating ranked third on the all-time NCAA list. As a senior in1996, he led the nation in passing eciency (173.6, No. 7 all-time) as the WesternAthletic Conerence champion Cougars went 14-1 and won the 1997 Cotton Bowl.He was the WAC Oensive Player o the Year in 1996, and earned second-teamAll-America honors. Sarkisian transerred to BYU rom El Camino Junior College,where he played two seasons (1993-94). He was a rst-team Junior College All-America selection as a sophomore and earned all-conerence honors in 1993 as areshman. He also played baseball at El Camino in 1993. He originally enrolled atUSC as a baseball player, spending the all o 1992 on the Trojans’ roster beoretranserring. Sarkisian was a standout ootball and baseball player at West Tor-rance (Cali.) High. He earned his bachelor’s degree in sociology rom BYU in 1997ater receiving his associate’s degree in general studies rom El Camino in 1994.Sarkisian was born March 8, 1974. He and his wie, Stephanie, have two daugh-ters, Ashley and Taylor, and a son, Brady.

Washington’s assistant coaching sta returns entirely in-cludes ve new members in 2012, meaning hal o the 10 ull-time coaches arein their rst season at the UW. Nearly all o the nine ull-time assistant coacheshave some sort o tie to the Northwest and many played or then-Pac-10 ootballprograms. The oensive side o the ball is led by newcomer Eric Kiesau, the oen-sive coordinator and quarterbacks coach who came to the UW rom Caliornia. Aormer QB at Portland State, Kiesau spent the last decade at either Cal or Colorado.He joins three oensive coaches who have been at the UW since Steve Sarkisianwas hired. Associate head coach - oense and running backs coach Joel Thomas,in his ourth year at UW, grew up in Port Angeles, Wash., and is a member o theIdaho Athletic Hall o Fame. He is still the Vandals’ all-time leader in carries, rush-ing yards and rushing TDs. Fellow Idaho grad Dan Cozzetto is in his ourth seasonas the UW’s run game coordinator and oensive line coach. Cozzetto grew up inSpokane, Wash., and was also the Washington line coach in 2003. He came tothe UW rom Arizona State. UW pass game coordinator and wide receivers coachJimmie Daugherty played QB at Missouri and spent most o his coaching careerprior to the UW at the University o San Diego. Assistant head coach, recruitingcoordinator and special teams coordinator Johnny Nansen is a ourth-year coach atthe UW. He grew up in Long Beach, Cali., but played ootball at Washington Stateand spent the previous ve years at Idaho beore moving over to the UW. The ourdeensive coaches are all new to the UW this year. Coordinator Justin Wilcox grewup in Junction City, Ore., and spent our years as a deensive back at Oregon. Hecame to the UW rom Tennessee and, prior to that, coached at Boise State, amongothers. His ormer college roommate, Peter Sirmon, oversees the UW linebackers.A our-year starter at Oregon and a native o Walla Walla, Wash., Sirmon playedin the NFL or seven years beore moving on to coaching. Ater stints at CentralWashington and Oregon, he worked with Wilcox at Tennessee beore coming toSeattle. The new deensive backs coach is Keith Heyward, a our-year lettermanat Oregon State. An L.A.-area native, Heyward has coached at OSU six o the lastseven seasons. Deensive line coach and deensive run game coordinator Tosh Lu-poi had spent his entire playing and coaching career at Caliornia beore moving tothe UW this past o-season. A ormer Cal deensive lineman, he’d coached the lineat his alma mater the last our years ater two seasons as a GA. Washington alsohas two returning grad assistants and two new ones. Washington’s two returnersare Jordan Paopao and Donte Williams. Paopao, who works with the tight ends,was a our-year starting center at the University o San Diego while Williams, whoprepped at Culver City High in the Los Angeles area, was a deensive back at Syra-cuse. The newcomers are Eric Guttorp, a Seattle native who wrapped up his careeras a UW kicker last season, and Andrew Rolin, who played and coached at USDalongside Paopao and Dougherty beore heading north to Seattle this o-season.
While the Huskies’ ull-time coaching stadoesn’t include any UW graduates, nearly all o them have some tie to the stateor to the Northwest and a surprising number have actually played or their almamater against the Dawgs. Head man Steve Sarkisian’s only loss in a 14-1 season asa senior at BYU in 1996 came to the UW at Husky Stadium. New deensive coachesJustin Wilcox and Peter Sirmon both aced the Huskies during their playing careersat Oregon rom 1996 to 1999. Former Washington State linebacker Johnny Nansen,now the Huskies’ recruiting coordinator and special teams coach, was on the op-posite sideline or several Apple Cups in the early-to-mid 1990s and new deensivebacks coach Keith Heyward played in a ew barnburners vs. the UW or OregonState rom 1997 to 2000. More recently, deensive line coach Tosh Lupoi squaredo with the Huskies during his time as a d-lineman at Caliornia at the start o thelast decade. And while neither oensive line coach Dan Cozzetto nor running backscoach Joel Thomas ever aced Washington during their careers at Idaho, both grewup in the Evergreen State. Finally, new oensive coordinator Eric Kiesau has alsonever played against Washington, but did play his college ootball just across theborder at Portland State.
The Washington-Washington State seriesdates back to 1900, when the teams played to a 5-5 tie in Seattle, but only since1962 has the winner been awarded the Apple Cup trophy. Prior to the institutiono the Apple Cup trophy, the winner o the Washington-WSU game was awardedthe Governor’s Trophy rom 1934 to 1961. Washington holds a commanding 67-31-6edge in the 104-game series, including a 35-14 record in Apple Cup games. The UWis 38-15-5 against WSU in games played in Seattle, Washington is 9-6 in gamesplayed in WSU's Martin Stadium as the rst UW-WSU game wasn't played thereuntil 1982 (WSU's "home" games against UW were played in Spokane rom 1950to 1980 and Martin Stadium opened in 1972). UW is 29-14-1 in away games in theseries, including games played in both Spokane and Pullman. The Huskies havewon 10 o the last 14 Apple Cups. Last year at CenturyLink Field, the UW won, 38-21, behind 291 yards and three TD passes rom Keith Price. In 2010, Washingtonbeat the Cougars, 35-28, in a tightly-contested game in Pullman. The winning scorecame on a 27-yard pass rom Jake Locker to Jermaine Kearse with 44 secondsremaining. In 2009, the Huskies posted the rst Apple Cup shutout since 1964 witha 30-0 win over the Cougars at Husky Stadium, breaking a two-game losing streakin the series. In 2008 in Pullman, the Cougars prevailed, 16-13, in double overtime.Five years ago at Husky Stadium, Alex Brink passed or 399 yards and hit BrandonGibson with a pair o ourth-quarter TDs to lead WSU to a 42-35 win. The Huskiesbroke another two-game losing streak with a 35-32 win in Pullman in 2006. In 2005at Martin Stadium, the Cougars beat the Dawgs, 28-25, behind a solid perormancerom Brink, who threw or two touchdowns and ran or another. Beore that, in2003, Washington pulled a third-straight upset (by AP ranking) in the series whenan unranked Husky team notched a 27-19 win over No. 8 Washington State. In 2002in Pullman, in a game that surely ranks as one o the most memorable ever in theseries, Washington shocked the No. 3 Cougars with a triple-overtime, 29-26 win,despite trailing by 10 with only 4:30 to play. In 2001, when the two teams met atHusky Stadium, the 16th-ranked Huskies upset the No. 9 Cougars with a 26-14 win.
While Johnny Nansen is the only member o the UWcoaching sta to have played at Washington State, he’s one o a three UW coacheswho are amiliar with the Palouse thanks to having played or coached at Idaho,located about seven miles east o WSU’s campus. UW assistants Dan Cozzetto,Joel Thomas and Nansen all played at and coached or Idaho. WSU running backscoach Jim Mastro was the RBs coach at Idaho when Thomas played the position,setting numerous Vandals records. UW deensive coordinator Justin Wilcox and WSUlinebackers coach Je Choate worked at Boise State together or several seasons,while WSU special teams coach Eric Russell was on the same sta as Wilcox andUW LBs coach Peter Sirmon at Tennessee last year. Finally, as ar as coaches go,Sirmon played or the Tennessee Titans alongside WSU d-line coach Joe Salave’aOnly three Husky players comes rom the eastern part o the state o Washington:Cody Bruns (Prosser), Bishop Sankey (Gonzaga Prep) and David Butler (Liberty Lake).Husky Desmond Truant’s brother, Marcus, was an All-America corner at WSU whileUW linebacker Cooper Pelluer’s ather, Scott, was a standout linebacker or the Cougs.On the fip side, WSU QB David Gilbertson is the son o ormer Husky head coachKeith Gilbertson and WSU’s Casey Locker is a rst cousin o ormer UW quarterbackJake Locker. Cougar Kyle Lappano is the son o ormer UW oensive coordinator TimLappano and brother o ormer UW player Taylor Lappano. While there aren’t thatmany Huskies rom the eastern side o the state, there are plenty o Cougar playersrom this side o the Cascades. And o course, a number o Huskies and Cougarsplayed with or against one another in their high school days. The UW’s Connor Cree,Pelluer, William Chandler and Kasen Williams attended Skyline High with WSU’s GinoSimone. Husky Kevin Smith and Coug Theron West were teammates at CentennialHigh in Compton, Cali. UW’s Keith Price and Will Shamburger were classmates atSt. John Bosco in L.A. along with WSU’s Leon Brooks (WSU’s Tyree Toomer wasone year older at the same school). Huskies Stetson Shearer and Cole Sager andCougar Anthony Furney all went to Burlington-Edison HS in Skagit County whileHusky Nate Fellner and WSU’s Je Tuel are both 2009 graduates o Clovis West HSin Fresno. UW’s James Sample and Shaq Thompson and Cougar Darryl Paulo wereteammates at Sacramento’s Grant High while WSU’s Joe Njoko went to Lakes HS,same as Huskies Jamaal and Sione Potoa’e. UW’s Austin Seerian-Jenkins and KoreyDurkee went to Gig Harbor HS, as did WSU’s Beau Glover. Sankey and WSU’s TravisLong are both Gonzaga Prep grads.
