    Cyler Miles expected to start against Buffs
    From the Seattle Times … Cyler Miles is expected to return as the Huskies’ starting quarterback next week at Colorado.
    A week after suffering a concussion, Miles did not play in Washington’s 24-10 loss to No. 14 Arizona State on Saturday night at Husky Stadium. Redshirt freshman Troy Williams made his first career start in Miles’ place.
    “Cyler should be back,” UW coach Chris Petersen said. “We don’t want a guy to have to lose his position to an injury; that’s not the right thing.”
    Petersen said Miles was available Saturday night after being cleared from his concussion, but Miles hadn’t practiced “a whole lot” during the week leading up to the ASU game.
    It will be homecoming for Miles, a sophomore from Centennial, Colo., in his first year as UW’s full-time starter.
    In UW’s eighth game of the season, Williams became the Huskies’ third starting quarterback. That’s the first that’s happened at UW since 2004.
    The Huskies also used sophomore Jeff Lindquist for several plays against Arizona State. He didn’t attempt a pass but ran twice for 10 yards.

    Oregon moves up to No. 5 in latest poll; USC falls out
    With the first Playoff top 25 due out on Tuesday, the Oregon Ducks are well positioned to make the Final Four. The Ducks moved up one spot, to No. 5, in the latest Associated Press poll, but three out of four teams ranked above them reside in the SEC West. Win out, and as Pac-12 champion, Oregon will be playing in the first national championship playoff.
    The next best positioned team in the Pac-12 is Arizona, up one spot to No. 14 this week. The Wildcats traded places with Arizona State, which is the new No. 15 team (I guess putting up 59 points on Washington State is more impressive than holding Washington without an offensive touchdown).
    Utah, which defeated USC at home this weekend, moved up one spot, to No. 18, while the former No. 20 Trojans dropped out of the poll.
    The only other Pac-12 team ranked this week was No. 25*UCLA, which stayed right where it was after escaping Boulder with a 40-37 double-overtime win.
    USC is now the No. 27 team in the poll, coming in behind No. 26 Colorado State. Stanford, which handled Oregon State, 38-14, to set up its showdown with Oregon, is No. 29 in the poll.
    The complete rankings:
    1Mississippi State (46)7-01486
    2Florida State (14)7-01453
    6Notre Dame6-11161

    UCLA post-game injury report*
    - Linebacker Addison Gillam (flu) … to be re-evaluated Sunday … day-to-day
    - Safety Marques Mosley (knee) … to be re-evaluated Sunday … officially day-to-day, but Mike MacIntyre told KOA radio after the game that it was a torn ACL, which would end Mosley’s season.
    - Safety Tedric Thompson … all tests were negative at Boulder Community hospital, where he was taken for precautionary reasons. “If you’re a praying person, please pray for Tedric [Thompson],” said MacIntyre. “When they took him off he was moving, but he was really scared. Hopefully everything is going to be alright with him and Marques Mosley.”*A *Daily Camera report confirmed MacIntyre’s post-game comments: Head trainer Miguel Rueda said Thompson was coherent and communicating on the field. “We just sent him to the hospital for precautionary reasons,” Rueda said. “He’s doing fine, he’s in good spirits, he looked good.”
    - Defensive back Ahkello Witherspoon was not on the official injury report after the game, but was held out of the UCLA game after suffering a concussion against USC.
    Older … Running back Christian Powell (concussion) and offensive guard Kaiwi Crabb (concussion) … Powell was held out of the UCLA game, and, while Crabb was on the participation chart, he was replaced in the starting lineup by red-shirt freshman Gerrad Kough … both are listed as day-to-day.

    Huskies produce only one field goal on offense in 24-10 loss to Arizona State
    From the Seattle Times … Taylor Kelly connected with Gary Chambers in the right corner of the end zone for a 7-yard, go-ahead touchdown with three minutes left in the game late Saturday, lifting No. 14 Arizona State to a 24-10 victory over the Huskies before an announced crowd of 64,666 on a cold, wet and windy night at Husky Stadium.
    On a night when redshirt freshman quarterback Troy Williams made his starting debut in nearly impossible weather conditions, widespread injuries were too much to overcome for the Huskies (5-3, 1-3 Pac-12), who have lost two in a row.
    “I have to take accountability on the offense,” Williams said. “I’m the leader. I just have to go out there and play hard, but obviously it wasn’t good enough.”
    Williams, filling in for injured sophomore Cyler Miles, finished 18 for 26 passing for 139 yards with two interceptions and a lost fumble.
    “I feel bad for Troy,” UW coach Chris Petersen said, “being thrown into his first start and having to deal with winds that were tough.”
    With a minute left, Williams made a desperation heave on fourth-and-25 that ASU’s Armand Perry intercepted and returned 60 yards for a touchdown to clinch the win for the Sun Devils (6-1, 4-1 Pac-12). On the play before, Williams had taken a sack on third-and-20.
    Before the Sun Devils’ go-ahead drive, the UW offense had put its first points on the board with 7:14 left in the fourth quarter on Cameron Van Winkle’s 23-yard field goal. That tied score at 10-10 and capped off the Huskies’ best drive of the night — 15 plays, 82 yards, covering 5 minutes, 42 seconds.
