Doubted for most of last season, Washington QB Keith Price is thriving for No. 16 Huskies

Doubt followed quarterback Keith Price everywhere last season as a junior at Washington. Doubt from fans. Doubt in his own mind, trusting his teammates and himself.

That's all gone now, replaced by confidence, swagger and a new toughness Price showed last Saturday in nearly leading the Huskies to an upset of No. 5 Stanford.

True to his personality, Price is deflecting the praise especially since it came in a 31-28 loss to the Cardinal. But should he be able to pull off the unlikely this Saturday and lead No. 16 Washington to an upset of No. 2 Oregon, he'd better be ready for a new heap of accolades.
