2:40 p.m.: Just arrived at the stadium. Not as much traffic today as the past couple of home games, and from what I hear, maybe a slightly smaller crowd.
It’s also a much drearier day: cloudy, cool, breezy and a slight drizzle that is expected to give way to rain by the second half.
From here, usual game-day drill: I’ll pop in with news as it develops, try to pop in with quarterly reports, and then turn things over to you guys for postgame discussion, before I’ll finally hop in again with quotes and notes.
3:50: A few players from each team are out on the field getting loose: Trojans in their bright yellow pants and Huskies in their pale gold. However, neither team has their game jerseys on … which means I haven’t gotten a look yet at the throwback jerseys. However, they’re doing a nice job of honoring the 1960 team on the video board.
4:20: Huskies out in their throwback uniforms. Very dark jerseys. Very cool numbers. I’d vote for keeping those numbers.
5:05: Captains for today’s game are Anthony Russo, Juan Gartcia, Jordan Reffett and Donald Butler.
