Jake led the Huskies to a 42-10 victory over 19th ranked Cal on Saturday night, a fairly flawless team performance that kept the fans clamoring for Jake to return for his senior season. Overall, Jake threw for 248 yards on a near perfect 19-23, with 3 precise touchdown tosses to go along with 77 yards rushing on 14 carries and 2 touchdowns on the ground. The showing was Jake’s most efficient of the season.
After the game, Locker moved up the Washington quarterback achievement charts, including into second place on the career rushing list for a q.b. (66 yards behind Tuiasosopo’s 1556) and 3rd all time passing yards for a season, behind only Cody Pickett’s 2002 & 2003 seasons.
The buzz after the game continued to center around one big question–will Jake move on to the National Football League, or will he return to UW in 2010?
Some thoughts pre-game and post-game from a myriad of sources regarding the game against Cal and Jake’s future:

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times catches up with Scott, Jake’s dad, to pick his brain about “The Decision.”
The revered Seattle Times columnist Steve Kelley asks if Jake will stay or go.
A fan’s perspective from the Bleacher Report, and a request for “One More Year.”

And, the Kitsap Sun writes that if this indeed was Jake’s curtain call, it was one worth celebrating.
