SEATTLE (AP) In any other week, all the talk would revolve around Jim Mora coming back to face Washington in Husky Stadium for the first time since moving into the college ranks and taking the head coaching job at UCLA.

Washington is where Mora played, where he got his start in coaching and where it was long thought he would eventually end up.
