10:19 PM ET: Utah has scored an early touchdown and is ahead 7-0 on USC.
10:15 PM ET: This writer is very excited to see Troy Williams under center. He did very well on the final few Washington drives against Oregon. Success today though will come with a big game by the offensive line to open up lanes for the running backs to get through.
10:08 PM ET: Shaq Thompson is also taking part in warmups with the running backs. According to Adam Jude, Coleman and Washington are in uniform but Deontae Cooper is expected to get his first start at tailback for the Huskies
10:05 PM ET: It appears that Cyler Miles is in uniform and throwing a bit during the warmups.
9:55 PM ET: Tim Booth from the AP shared the following information. Chris Petersen has not lost two games in a row since the end of the 2007 season.
9:53 PM ET: The three games earlier gave the following results: #25 UCLA 40, Colorado 37 in two overtimes. Stanford 38, Oregon State 14. #15 Arizona 59, Washington State 37.
9:52 PM ET: In 8 minutes, the #20 USC Trojans will square off with the #19 Utah Utes from Salt Lake City in a big Pac-12 South matchup.
9:51 PM ET: We have had three games earlier today in the Pac-12 Conference as well as one that is kicking off in moments on Fox Sports 1.
9:46 PM ET: A score update in the game before ours on ESPN: #3 Ole Miss leads #24 LSU 7-3 with just under three minutes left in the third quarter.
9:41 PM ET: You may not be able to tell from the picture but the rain is driving down at a thunderous pace.
9:40 PM ET: Here is a view from the press box courtesy of our friend Adam Jude.
9:29 PM ET: We will keep you updated all of the action around the Pac-12 Conference and the Top 25 in just a moment.
9:27 PM ET: What are your thoughts about tonight’s game? Who do you think will emerge victorious and thus become bowl eligible? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
9:25 PM ET: The forecast is calling for heavy rain and very gusty winds tonight. Winds could gust as high as 55 miles per hour according to weather reports from local news stations. This could make the running game even more important for both teams. Here is a picture from Husky Director of Content Creation Mason Kelley showing the conditions from about an hour ago.
9:23 PM ET: The stats from the last 8 games in this series show pure dominance by Arizona State. Of the offensive stats, Arizona State leads every category except for passing attempts. The Sun Devils have more total yards (3,426 to 2,435), total plays (577 to 544), passing yards (2,054 to 1,617), rushing yards (1,372 to 818) and first downs (173 to 142).
9:21 PM ET: A big key to look for in this game will be fourth down when Arizona State has the ball. The Sun Devils have a conversion percentage of 60% (6-for-10) on fourth downs while the Washington defense has allowed a conversion percentage of 76.5% (13-for-17) by their opponents. That is good for 120th in the nation.
9:19 PM ET: With Kelly back in the lineup, look for the Sun Devils to return to their run first offense. They ran the ball 60% of the time with Kelly as the starter. With Bercovici as the starter, those running numbers dropped to 41.1% of the time. The rain may also play a factor in the play-calling for Todd Graham and the Sun Devils.
9:17 PM ET: While the Washington Huskies are dealing with injury problems, the Arizona State Sun Devils (5-1) will have senior quarterback Taylor Kelly available for the first time since the Sun Devils’ 38-24 victory over Colorado. Kelly injured his foot during that win and has missed the last three games but all was not lost as backup Mike Bercovici filled in well leading the team to wins over USC and Stanford.
9:15 PM ET: And third, the weather. The forecasts from mid-week on called for rain and wind in the Seattle area today. Both of those factors will affect the passing game making the running game that much more important in this one.
9:13 PM ET: In the three conference games though, that has been a different story. They have rushed for 325 yards on 112 carries (2.9 yards per carry). Those struggles have forced the Dawgs to put the ball in the air more (97 attempts) with a very minimal impact (555 yards).
9:11 PM ET: Comparing the rushing statistics from non-conference to conference play for Washington is not a pretty picture. The Huskies ran for 957 yards on 204 carries (4.7 yards per carry) in their four non-conference games. This success on the ground meant that they only had to attempt 99 passes through the air. They were running the ball on 67.3% of their plays.
9:09 PM ET: Second, it will give the offensive line the confidence they had during the non-conference slate. The O-Line has been dealing with injuries all season specifically senior right tackle Ben Riva who has missed most of the season. They were dealt another blow when left guard Dexter Charles was seen wearing a walking boot on his right foot after the loss to Oregon last week. Charles is still listed on the depth chart as the starter but we will see what happens tonight.
9:07 PM ET: First, it will keep the pressure off of Troy Williams. The last thing that Washington will want to do is force the redshirt freshman making his first career start on Montlake to beat a ranked opponent through the air. Arizona State is ranked 80th in passing yards allowed at 239.8 per game but they are worse on the ground, ranked 91st allowing 185.3 per game.
9:05 PM ET: Establishing and executing the running game will be a must for the Huskies for a number of reasons in this game.
9:03 PM ET: Petersen also had linebacker Shaq Thompson and wide receiver John Ross take some snaps from the tailback position during the week just in case Washington and/or Coleman are not ready to go. Deontae Cooper would be the starting tailback in that case.
9:01 PM ET: Jude later reported that redshirt freshman Troy Williams, who saw some time in the late stages against Oregon, had taken a majority of the snaps with the first team offensive unit during the week of practice. It was confirmed on Friday afternoon that Williams would indeed start at quarterback for Washington.
8:59 PM ET: The trio of Miles, Washington, and Coleman were all listed on the official Washington depth chart on Monday by head coach Chris Petersen. Petersen told Adam Jude of the Seattle Times after practice on Wednesday that all three players were “day to day”.
8:57 PM ET: Cyler Miles also missed the last two Washington possessions after suffering a concussion when he was sacked on a 1st and 10 from the Oregon 36 with just over 14 minutes remaining in the game. His head was driven into the turf as he lost control of the football on what would turn out to be a very critical turnover down by three scores. Oregon put the game away with a touchdown on their next drive.
8:55 PM ET: Lavon Coleman left the game during the final Huskies scoring drive with a shoulder injury. That opened up some carries for third-string running back Deontae Cooper, who moved up to the third-string spot after Jesse Callier tore his Achilles earlier in the season.
8:53 PM ET: Another big issue for the Huskies was injuries. They lost three key members of the offense at different points during the game. First, it was Dwayne Washington who left after only two carries with what was called a “chest” injury. His ribs, more specifically, were mentioned on the Fox Sports 1 broadcast last week.
8:51 PM ET: The Huskies ended up attempting a season-high 38 passes, completing a season-high 24 of them for 184 yards. That was the third consecutive week that Washington earned more yards though the air than on the ground.
8:49 PM ET: Washington had problems establishing their running game which forced them to try and win through the air. Given the passing struggles of Cyler Miles and the fact that pass-first teams do NOT beat Oregon, it was unsuccessful. The Huskies only gained 133 yards on the ground on 36 carries, well below the season average of 191.5 yards per game they had going into the game.
8:47 PM ET: The Washington Huskies (5-2) come into this game off of a 45-20 loss to the Oregon Ducks in Eugene last Saturday night. It was the 11th consecutive win for Oregon in the series.
