NWSB Insider and Washington Huskies Blogger Chris Hall gives us five things to look forward to in UW’s Week 3 matchup with the Illinois Fighting Illini. First and foremost, keep an eye on Austin Seferian-Jenkins in his return game from suspension. But while ASJ will make his mark, as well as Bishop Sankey and Kasen Williams, look for Jaydon Mickens and Dwayne Washington to potentially get involved. The UW defense will be tested by Nathan Scheelhaase, and this should be a hard-fought battle on both sides.
NWSB Insider and Washington Huskies blogger Chris Hall brings us a list of playmakers who stepped up against Boise State and should raise their profiles this season.

Lets not forget TE Josh Perkins also made the list after his solid performance.
NWSB Insider and Washington Husky blogger Brandon Choate brings us his game balls for the Husky victory over Boise State. Keith Price, Bishop Sankey and Jaydon Mickens all earned offensive game balls for their performance while John Timu, Shaq Thompson and Danny Shelton got them on the defensive side of the ball.

NWSB Insider and Washington Huskies’ blogger Chris Hall previews the 2013 offense for the Washington Huskies. Led by Keith Price at quarterback, the Huskies have a lot of potential on the offensive side of the ball, especially with Bishop Sankey at running back.

NWSB Insider and Washington Huskies football blogger Chris Hall is back to tell us all about 2013 Huskies spring football. What does Steve Sarkisian have up his sleeve this year? Washington ranked in an exceptionally strong recruiting class this year, another tribute to Sarkisian’s skills as a recruiter. What we know?

NWSB Insider and Washington Huskies football blogger Chris Hall is back to tell us all about the top WR recruit the Huskies just landed, Damore’ea Stringfellow. As he briefly spoke about in a previous post, Stringfellow is out of California, and regarded as the best WR in the recruiting class. A player with athletic talent, he will give Keith Price another target to throw to, that is if he doesn’t red shirt, like Chris believes will happen. Stringfellow has the ability to out-muscle, and out-jump DB’s across the Pac-12 spectrum, which will be a plus for a below average QB like Price turned out to be last season.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Hall talks about the positions the Huskies football team need to upgrade in 2013 for an even better season than their last.
