Duck sauce, anyone.?
Huskies ready to mush

By Benjamin Singer
1111V Sports Waiter
This week'S marque matchup will be
at the Big House, but that doesn't mean
ihit there won't be a few interesting
games tomorrow. After your postgame
tailgating, check out these matchups.
No. 6 WASHINGTON (3-0) xr No. 25
OREGON (3-1, 1-0): Do unto others as
others would do unto you. Oregon made
'.UCLA pay last week via the golden
yule. The Ducks spoiled the spoilers
after the Bruins had upset the likes of
Alabama and Michigan.
Oregon will hope to ride its 17-game
winning streak at Autzen Stadium.
Though Washington has marched for-
ward to a 3-0 start, quarterback
Marques Tuiasosopo has had as hard a
time throwing the ball as the rest of us
have had with saying his name. The
eight-syllable quarterback has been
picked off five times while only throw-
ing three touchdowns. Tuiasosopo does-
n't quite have the nose for the endzone
that a scrambler should - with only
two rushing scores -- putting the pres-
sure on the Washington defense. It has
done its part so far, and it will again.
Washington 27, Oregon 21
No. 5 KANSAS Sr,,ii. (4-0) Avi
CoLoRADo (0-3): Kansas State is in a
lose-lose situation, even if they win.
Clearly, a loss puts a damper on its
ibtinal title hopes. But even putting
N'-an 0-3 team this weekend may not
prove much. All they've been doing so
hr is beating up on the dregs of the
NCAA.
The worst part for the Wildcats is that
a loss it Colorado is entirely possible.
The Buffaloes dropped out of the Top
25, because of three losses by a coin-
bined 10 points.
With preseason Heisman candidate
David Allen sidelined since the first
game, the team, and the ball, is in the

hands of quarterback Jonathan Beasley.
Beaslev is a threateto run, which seems
to be a prerequisite for NCAA quarter-
backs these days. He leads the team
with eight rushing scores, five coming
last week.
Colorado has been having running
back issues as well. After Cortlen
Johnson got hurt in the Buffaloes' first
game, Marcus Houston stepped in, aver-
aging 5.0 yards per carry, but with only
one touchdown. With Houston injuring
himself last week, it's tihe for Cortlen
Johnson to take his job back as he con-
veniently recovered for this week. He
can't help Colorado recover from its
poor start, however.
Kansas State 35, Colorado 24
No. 23 SOUTH CAROINA (4-0, 2-0)
ATAtABAAMA (1-3, 1-1): Finally, the luck
of the Irish has found Lou Holtz.
After a winless season last year, the
Gamecocks snapped the nation's
longest losing streak. South Carolina
has wins over ranked teams in Georgia
and Mississippi State.
Meanwhile, the Tide has turned in
Tuscaloosa. The preseason No. 3 team
was probably looking past this date
with the Gamecocks at the start of the
season. Now, they may not get past it
at all.
As goes Freddie Millons, so goes the
Tide. He is averaging fewer than 10
yards per his 14 catches without a
touchdown.
South Carolina has quarterback
issues after Phil Petty was injured last
week. But it was backup Erik Kimery
who threw the game-winning touch-
down in his first play from scrimmage.
Besides, the Gamecock's main attack is
running back Derrick Watson, who
averages 6.2 yards per carry and has
seven touchdowns. No one would have
picked South Carolina four weeks ago,
but now it seems feasible.
South Carolina 21, Alabama 17
