With the BCS selection show scheduled for 5:30 p.m., that means the Washington Huskies’ bowl plans should be finalized some time after. We explore that and more in today’s newspaper.
— Here’s our story looking at UW’s bowl possibilities. The gist: unless Oregon snags a BCS bid — something that seems unlikely, with most projecting Oklahoma to garner the final at-large spot — the Huskies are headed to the Fight Hunger Bowl. If the Ducks do find their way into the BCS, then the Sun and Las Vegas bowls become possibilities. Put in calls Saturday to representatives from each of those bowls, but was not able to reach them. Regardless, we’ll know more after the BCS picks.
The official UW athletics site also tweeted a photo yesterday of Petersen standing in Husky Stadium.
— The UW men’s basketball team is on the road this afternoon for a 12:05 p.m. game at San Diego State.
— The Seattle Times on Chris Petersen’s upbringing, and his dad’s Seattle roots.
— Interesting story in the LA Times about a Narbonne High teacher turning Steve Sarkisian away at the door of her classroom.
— As noted last night, it sounds like Petersen is bringing his RBs coach/recruiting coordinator with him to UW, as well as, possibly, his offensive line coach.
— Boise State got back to practice yesterday without Petersen as head coach for the first time since 2006.
