The five finalists for the Polynesian College Football Player of the Year Award were announced today. They include: Manase Hungalu (Oregon State), Hercules Mata'afa (Washington State), Andrew Motuapuaka (Virginia Tech), Jahlani Tavai (Hawai'i) and Vita Vea (Washington). Colorado quarterback Sefo Liufau won the award last year.
The Trojans find themselves back on top, and several other teams are going bowling. How does the conference stack up?
Washington announced Bush Hamdan will return to the program as the team's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He is currently the Atlanta Falcons quarterbacks coach, but spent the precious two season on Chris Peterson's staff in Seattle.
The 2017 New Year's Six have been announced, with some high-powered matchups set to bring in the new year.
The key players and storylines from every bowl game, from the Celebration Bowl to the College Football Playoff.
Washington landed at No. 11 in the final College Football Playoff rankings, which will vault the Huskies into a New Year's Six bowl.
If you're looking for the best team going forward, FPI is your guide. Right now the model ranks Alabama and Ohio State No. 1 and 2, respectively.
Oregon State has finalized a deal to hire Washington co-offensive coordinator Jonathan Smith as its next head coach. Smith has been working as quarterbacks coach for Chris Petersen since 2012.
Defending champion Clemson is back at No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings ahead of Oklahoma at No. 3 and CFP newcomers Auburn (No. 2) and Wisconsin (No. 4).
With four touchdowns on Saturday, Myles Gaskin became the first player in Washington history to score four or more TDs in multiple games during his career. UCLA's Kenny Young's career-best 15 tackles lifted him into 13th place on the Bruins all-time tackles list. Jake Bailey tallied a career-high five punts of 50+ yards and a career-long 65-yard punt in Stanford's upset of No. 8 Notre Dame.
As the regular season winds down to its final games, The Eliminator did the dirty work and knocked off all the teams that have no chance of playing for the national championship. The result? There are only nine teams left fighting for the four CFP spots.
There won't be playoff implications on the line when Stanford and USC meet Friday night, but there's still the matter of bowl destinations for both.
Myles Gaskin ran for 192 yards and four touchdowns, Washington forced four turnovers, and the No. 15 Huskies ended No. 14 Washington State's hopes for a Pac-12 North title with a 41-14 thumping Saturday night.
And you thought the night couldn't get worse for Washington State: down 24-0, the Cougars came out of the halftime locker room to find it raining. Luke Falk turned it over 3 times in a dry 1st half.
Washington came jnto the Apple Cup plus-7 in turnovers; Wash. St., minus-2. The Huskies just converted Luke Falk's 2nd giveaway of the game, a fumble while scrambling, into a TD & a 14-0 lead.
The Huskies have sacked Luke Falk 3 times & picked him off once. The Cougars needed 3 possessions & 11-plus minutes to make a 1st down. They netted 24 yards in the 1st quarter. Defense is the story.
Nice salute to retiring UW broadcaster Bob Rondeau: an old-fashioned card stunt.
Dante Pettis was injured midway through the first quarter on a punt return after Washington State went three-and-out on its first possession. He slowly walked to Washington's locker room.
