A couple of you have asked how ticket sales are going, so here's an update from UW officials.
The Huskies are currently sitting at 42,460 season tickets sold. Last year, UW sold a total of 43,516, so the Huskies are at 98 percent of that number.
As for tickets sold at this point of the year, UW is about 1,000 season tickets ahead of that pace.
The percentage is greater in terms of Tyee, or donor, seats. Last year, UW sold 17,167 Tyee seats. This year, UW has already sold 16,984 of those seats, or 99 percent of last season. (All numbers updated since this was first written).
Four-game mini-plans go on sale tomorrow (Wednesday). Last year, the school sold ,5345 mini-plans, which are good for tickets to four games of the buyer's choice at $212 for reserved seating and $112 for East End Bleachers.
The Huskies averaged 68,855 fans per game last season, up substantially from the 57,483 of the 2006 season, which was the lowest since the expansion of Husky Stadium in 1987. UW ranked third in the Pac-10 in attendance last season behind USC (87,486) and UCLA (76,379).
