Chris Polk headlines the UW class of nine on the 2011 Pac-12 All Conference Team. Polk was named first team RB today, while Senio Kelemete was second team at offensive line, and linebacker Cort Dennison earned second team LB honors. Rounding out the group of honored Dawgs were six players named to the All-Pac 12 Honorable Mention Team: WR Devin Aguilar, Sr.; TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Fr.; WR Jermaine Kearse, Sr.; QB Keith Price, So.; DL Alameda Ta’amu, Sr.; DB Desmond Trufant, Jr.
The Huskies may have the week off of practice after their 38-21 Apple Cup victory over WSU, but the coaches are still watching film and recruiting hard while the student-athletes are busy preparing for the upcoming finals and training in the weight room. Husky Football never rests in pursuit of their goals.
Coach Sark will definitely be keeping an eye on today’s NFL matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Tennessee Titans, since three of his former Huskies will be playing in it. Jake Locker, who threw two touchdowns last week against the Falcons, is the Titans’ backup quarterback, and the Buccaneers feature two Husky defenders in Mason Foster and Daniel Te’o-Nesheim. Foster is the starting middle linebacker while Te’o-Nesheim has moved up to the backup defensive end due to a starter’s injury. There could very well be a chance that all three line up on the field at the same time, so be sure to watch some Huskies in the pros!
The University of Washington Huskies won the 104th Apple Cup, defeating their in-state rivals Washington State 38-21. This was the Dawgs’ 67th victory against WSU, furthering their lead in the series. The night was made even more important as it was the Dawgs’ 7th win of the regular season, assuring an over .500 record and the third straight season of an improvement in the win column under Coach Sark. Also, Keith Price and Chris Polk put together impressive performances that furthered their already prolific numbers. Price broke Cody Pickett’s record for most passing touchdowns in a season by a Husky with 29 on the season. Price connected with Kasen Williams twice tonight, and once with Polk. Polk added to the air totals with 100 yards on the ground tonight, pushing his record for most 100 yard rushing games by a Husky to 20.
The Huskies take on Washington State tomorrow in the 104th meeting between the teams. Coach Sark is 2-0 against the Cougs, and the Dawgs are 66-31-6 all time against their in-state rivals. Gregg Bell of GoHuskies.com has a preview of the game, as well as coverage of the story-lines heading into the contest.
Keith Price does it all as he takes over the football office during the Bye Week. Check out the latest promo on This is Husky Football.
On behalf of the University of Washington Football office, we wish you all a very safe and Happy Thanksgiving! We are thankful for the opportunity to help guide these young student-athletes on and off the field as they progress in their collegiate endeavors, and we are grateful for the tremendous support we receive from Husky Nation!
The team hit the practice field hard again today in preparation for the Apple Cup this weekend. The staff recognizes how much work this team has put in and with a little help from the Director of Football Operations, Dennis Slutak, Daniel’s Broiler was on hand catering the team’s meal tonight. Here are photos from the event:
