Kickoff is about an hour away --- it is officially at 8:41 Seattle time.
Sadly for UW, the Huskies will start the game knowing they will finish in sole possession of last place in the Pac-10.
UW was assured of that designation when Stanford beat Cal today a result that also takes a lot of the shine off of what might have been Washington's most impressive win of the season.
It is the second time in four years UW has been in last all by itself (2004 the other).
HUSKIES WEARING HOME UNIS --- When the game starts, you'll see UW wearing its home uniforms. Apparently, Hawaii wanted to wear its home whites saying it was simply a look they liked. UW agreed after getting assurance that there wasn't some "gamesmanship'' involved, such as having a "white-out'' night imploring all the fans to wear white.
ALSO --- Most every Husky is here, including players who are redshirting, save for players who are hurt. There is a departmental policy that covers all sports against traveling players who have no chance of playing due to injury. Among those left behind as a result of that are Donald Butler and Jordan Murchison.
In fact, 94 players made the trip with only six staying home, all either injured or sick.
