  The University of Washington is still trying to make its fall football game against Michigan happen. On Friday, Washington athletic director Jennifer Cohen told The Seattle Times that she's "working towards a plan" to still play the game, scheduled for Sept. 5 at Husky Stadium in Seattle, Wash. The game is the first of a two-game series agreed to in 2014, one that includes a 2021 matchup in Ann Arbor. In both cases, the traveling team stands to receive a $1 million guarantee. "I was actually just sending messages to Warde (Manuel), their athletic director, this morning," Cohen said in a story published on Monday. "They're of that same time frame and plan, too. So I think the question to me is as much, 'What will it look like in the venue?' as it is whether or not we're going to play it."

Cohen's comments come as the college football world awaits plans from their respective universities this fall. The common belief is that football, and other fall sports, cannot happen without on-campus instruction and other students present. While the University of Michigan has said it plans to have a on-site, "public health-informed" fall semester, Washington has not committed to such a plan yet. And according to Gov. Jay Inslee's plan to reopen the state, large gatherings and sporting events may be limited until July. - Ann Arbor News

  Washington's football program just won a national championship. Of sorts. On Tuesday, the NCAA announced that the Huskies recorded an Academic Progress Rate (APR) score of 999 out of 1,000 - the top mark of all Division I FBS football programs. For that matter, it's also the highest four-year score ever by an FBS football program. Washington's score was one point higher than Wisconsin, which posted a 998 in 2013-14. The Huskies also topped the Pac-12 Conference for the third consecutive year.

"I could not be more proud of our football program for today's NCAA Academic Progress Report release," UW athletics director Jen Cohen said in a statement. "To post the highest-ever recorded four-year mark among FBS programs speaks volumes about our students, football coaches and staff's commitment to continued excellence in the classroom at the University of Washington. I'd especially like to acknowledge Kim Durand [senior associate athletic director for student development] and her team for their tireless work to support our students' academic endeavors." - Seattle Times

  As far as football media days this summer go, the Pac-12 is falling in line with its FBS brethren. A league spokesman confirmed to The Salt Lake Tribune late Thursday evening that the Pac-12 will not hold its football media day as planned on July 29 at the Hollywood & Highland Entertainment Center. Instead, the league will hold virtual media days. Of the 10 FBS conferences, seven have said they will go to a virtual format. Of those seven, the Pac-12 and Big 12 are the only Power Five conferences to announce their plans. The Big 12 said on Wednesday it will bail on in-person media days July 20-21 at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.

The SEC (July 13-16, Atlanta), ACC (July 22-23, Charlotte) and Big Ten (July 22-23, Chicago) are the remaining FBS outliers. An exact format is still being worked out by the Pac-12, as is a date or dates for the event. On Thursday, the league announced a series of 30-minute, media-only webinars next week involving the league's 12 football coaches. Each day from Monday through Thursday, three coaches will participate with a different topic slated for each session. - Salt Lake Tribune

  Washington football fans will get to see former Husky quarterback Jacob Eason during this month's NFL Draft. The only question is, when? The 6-foot-6, 227-pound signal caller from Lake Stevens is one of 58 players - and the lone Husky - who will participate virtually in the 2020 NFL Draft, the league announced on Thursday. In his lone season as UW's starter, Eason - a former five-star recruit and Georgia transfer - completed 64% of his passes, throwing for 3,132 yards with 23 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Husky football fans now know they'll get some added access to Eason when he's selected during the NFL Draft's broadcast. It's yet to be determined, though, whether that will happen on Thursday or Friday. - Seattle Times

  Following a meeting of its CEO Group, the Pac-12 announced Monday that organized team activities, with limited exceptions, are not allowed through May 31 due to the coronavirus pandemic. That puts an end to any possibility of spring football practice, which Oregon State and Oregon had not officially cancelled. Through the end of May, Pac-12 teams are not allowed to have organized team practices, voluntary workouts, film study sessions, meetings or technique drills. Football teams are permitted two hours per week of virtual group activities, including film study. Other sports are allowed four hours. The Pac-12 says it is appealing to the NCAA to increase the two-hour time limit for football. Coaches are allowed to provide self-directed workout plans and demonstration videos, but they cannot watch or supervise. - The Oregonian

  Washington quarterback Jacob Eason announced Thursday he will skip his final year of college and enter the NFL draft. Eason started 13 games for Washington last season after beginning his college career at Georgia and transferring following his sophomore season. He threw for 3,132 yards and 23 touchdowns for the Huskies in a season where at times he looked like a sure first-round pick and at other times it appeared that another season of college would help his draft status. "I want to thank everyone at the UW - my teammates, the coaching staff and the fans - for making these last two years so memorable," Eason said in a statement. "I'm very happy that I was able to come home and play for the Dawgs, and will always be grateful."

Eason was a five-star recruit out of nearby Lake Stevens, Washington, who opted to go across the country to play at Georgia. He started as a freshman for the Bulldogs but lost the job to Jake Fromm during his sophomore season after suffering an injury in the season opener. Eason sat out the 2018 season after transferring to Washington and beat out Jake Haener for the starting job during fall camp in August. Eason completed 64.2% of his passes and had standout games early in the season against Eastern Washington, BYU and Arizona. His best game may have come in a loss to Oregon, in which Eason was 23 of 30 for 289 yards and three touchdowns. - AP College Football

  Washington fired offensive coordinator Bush Hamdan on Sunday following a season where the Huskies' offense failed to match expectations. It's first major move by new coach Jimmy Lake and it came less than 24 hours after the Huskies closed out Chris Petersen's tenure by routing Boise State 38-7 in the Las Vegas Bowl. Washington also announced that tight ends coach Jordan Paopao also would not be retained. Paopao has been in that role since 2013. "I've really enjoyed working alongside Bush and Jordan and appreciate their contributions to Husky football," Lake said in a statement. "These decisions are extremely difficult, but I believe it's in the best interest of our program to make these changes to align with the vision we have for our team moving forward. I wish them both nothing but the best."

Hamdan arrived in 2018 after previous offensive coordinator Jonathan Smith took the head job at Oregon State. Hamdan became an easy critic for fans as Washington's offense slumped following Smith's departure and seemed to lack innovation. This season, with Georgia transfer Jacob Eason at the helm, Washington had several games where its offense was the issue leading to losses, and play-calling at times was a significant problem. Including the bowl game win, Washington averaged 32 points per game this season. Its average last season was 26.8. In 2016, when the Huskies reached the College Football Playoff, they averaged 41.8 points per game. Hamdan was previously on Washington's staff in 2015 and 2016 before leaving to be the quarterbacks coach with the Atlanta Falcons for the 2017 season. - AP College Football

  Jacob Eason threw for 210 yards and a touchdown and Washington sent out coach Chris Petersen with a 38-7 victory over No. 18 Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl on Saturday night. Richard Newton rushed for 69 yards with a short touchdown run and threw a touchdown pass for the Huskies (8-5). They capped an erratic season with a dominant finale for Petersen - who left Boise State to coach Washington - after he announced Dec. 2 he was stepping down after six seasons. Myles Bryant and Elijah Molden had interceptions, and coordinator Jimmy Lake's defense allowed 266 yards. Lake is taking over as head coach.

Jaylon Henderson threw for 48 yards and a touchdown for the Broncos (12-2). They lost for the first time in five appearances in the Las Vegas Bowl. Henderson replaced Hank Bachmeier in the second half after the freshman threw his second interception. The Huskies jumped out to a 17-0 halftime lead behind a methodical offense and suffocating defense. Bachmeier threw a pass up for grabs on the opening possession that was easily picked off by Bryant, and Andre Baccellia took a slant from Eason 17 yards into the end zone for the opening score. Salvon Ahmed made it 14-0 in the second quarter with an 8-yard touchdown run to cap a 13-play march, and Peyton Henry kicked a 32-yard field goal as the half ended. Eason threw a 26-yard pass to Marquis Spiker on the first play of the drive, the longest gain of the half and one of two plays for either team that gained 20 yards. Molden picked off a screen pass by Bachmeier, with Washington going up 24-0 early in the third quarter on a 2-yard touchdown run by Newton. - AP College Football
