The Huskies are back on the field this morning at 10 for another practice open to the media. We’ll pass along the pertinent details. Here are some pertinent links.

In our story in today’s newspaper, I wrote about Petersen’s statements yesterday that he wouldn’t be opposed to scheduling opponents from non-Power Five conferences. That’s contrary to how he voted in an ESPN poll, though he said yesterday that he didn’t fully understand the poll question when it was asked.

And here’s the update from Boise.
