University of Washington
WASHINGTON — Key players: QB Keith Price, CB Desmond Trufant, WR Kasen Williams, TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, DE Josh Shirley. Returning starters: offense 6, defense 7.
Notes: Coming off the school's worst statistical defensive season, coach Steve Sarkisian replaced three defensive coaches, including coordinator Nick Holt. New coordinator Justin Wilcox has shifted the Huskies to more of a 3-4 defense, which appeared to free up the defenders in Washington's spring game. ... The Huskies have to replace top running back Chris Polk and have plenty of question marks on the offensive line. ... Price was stellar in his first season as a starter, setting a team record by completing 66.9 percent of his passes while throwing for over 3,000 yards and 33 TDs.
