Washington looked sluggish to begin its last game against Arizona State, but the team got turned around and showed why it deserves to be in the playoff conversation. Though the Huskies are most known for their high-powered offense, the defense ranks inside the top 20 in points and yards allowed this season.

Washington State was handily beaten 45-10 at the hands of Washington last season but was without star quarterback Luke Falk, who was dealing with a concussion. Falk has thrown for at least 300 yards and three touchdowns in nine of 11 games this season. The Cougars defense will need to shape up after allowing 603 yards and 38 points to Colorado last week.
