Jason Chorak sat there stoically on a late Saturday afternoon in September, his 6-foot-4, 255-pound body wedged into an auditorium seat in the room that serves as Washington's postgame interview area at Husky Stadium. The Huskies' national championship hopes had just been trampled in a 27-14 loss to Nebraska, whose option attack ran up nearly 400 yards on the ground. "It hurts," said Chorak, the outside linebacker whose name dots various All-American lists, as he stared straight ahead.

Brigham Young finished 14-1 last season. The one was Washington. In BYU's fight for respect against the bowl alliance, the 29-17 Washington loss always got thrown back in the Cougars' face. Saturday, in Provo, BYU can make quite a mission statement with a victory. A win would not only vault BYU up the national rankings, it would be a key hide to hang for the beleaguered Western Athletic Conference. "We really can talk all we want," BYU Coach LaVell Edwards said.

Corey Dillon set an NCAA rushing record for a quarter, gaining 222 yards in 16 carries in the first quarter as No. 15 Washington overwhelmed San Jose State, 53-10, in a nonconference game Saturday. Dillon, a 225-pound junior tailback, played only one quarter for Washington (8-2), but that was enough to give the Huskies a 25-0 lead en route to their fifth victory in a row. Dillon scored on runs of 78, 48 and four yards and also turned a screen pass from Brock Huard into an 83-yard touchdown.

Washington tailback Rashaan Shehee, who entered Saturday's game against USC as the ninth-leading rusher in the nation with an average of 121 yards per game, might be finished for the season after spraining the medial collateral ligament in his left knee Saturday. Shehee, who had a streak of four consecutive 100-yard rushing games this season and five overall, was injured with 8:47 left in the first quarter.

Rashaan Shehee ran for 146 yards and a touchdown and Brock Huard passed for two touchdowns to lead No. 10 Washington to a 26-14 victory over No. 25 Arizona State in their Pac-10 opener Saturday. The defending champion Sun Devils (3-2, 1-1) had an 11-game Pac-10 winning streak broken. Arizona State beat Washington in the season opener in Tempe last year and went to the Rose Bowl with a perfect conference record, while the Huskies were second with one defeat.

The Washington Huskies may not have a bad defense after all. Torn apart by Jake Plummer and Arizona State in a 45-42 loss a week earlier, Washington's defense looked like an entirely different unit against No. 14 Brigham Young on Saturday. The Huskies sacked highly regarded quarterback Steve Sarkisian eight times--and even tackled him in the end zone for a safety--in a 29-14 victory.

It looks like someone's trying to sneak a New Year's Day matchup in a couple of days early. Tonight's Holiday Bowl game pits No. 8 Colorado against No. 13 Washington. Both teams have nine victories and missed at least a share of their conference's championship by less than a touchdown. Yet they slip into San Diego's Jack Murphy Stadium for a 5 p.m. kickoff while teams with worse records will compete on or nearer to New Year's Day.

Freewheelin' Corey Dillon wasn't about to jump over anybody or anything, for any reason. Instead, Washington's 6-foot-2, 225-pound junior college transfer just kept rolling like a stone into the UCLA defensive line, and, more often than any Washington runner has since Husky great Hugh McElhenny in 1950, Dillon ended the run upright, and in the end zone.

It's worse than a who's-on-first skit. It's Game 9 of the football season and USC doesn't really know who its quarterback or its tailback will be Saturday against Stanford at the Coliseum. Who's at tailback? With injuries rampant, defensive back Chad Morton switched to tailback Tuesday, more than a year after last season's emergency duty, when he played offense for three games and had a 143-yard performance against Oregon State. "I don't think he'll start.
