NWSB Insider and Washington Husky blogger Brandon Choate brings us his week 9 game preview between the Washington Huskies and the visiting Oregon State Beavers. Washington will need to get back their confidence as they play yet another top 10 team this week. Keith Price will need to hold onto the ball and try to get it in the hands of his playmakers.
