The AP pre-season college football poll is out and it features five teams the Huskies will play this season --- USC (3), Oklahoma (4), Arizona State (15), BYU (16) and Oregon (21).
The Huskies got one vote in the poll, from Joe Giglio of the Raleigh News and Observer.
Giglio is the same guy who was the last voter to have UW in his poll a year ago, ranking the Huskies No. 24 as late as the first week of October after Washington fell to 2-3 following a loss to USC.
--- My story in Saturday's paper was about how opening against Oregon, while admittedly a tough way to enter the season, also may present some advantages.
--- Ted Miller has his usual Pac-10 links, including the note that there look to be a lot of scrimmages today.
--- Among the teams scrimmaging today is Oregon, holding its final open scrimmage of the pre-season, with all eyes on QB Nate Costa.
--- Here's a story on Louis Rankin's battle to make the Raiders' roster. Rankin had 29 yards on six carries in Oakland's loss last night to Tennessee and also caught a pass for six yards. Greyson Gunheim had one tackle. Marcel Reeceand Marques Tuiasosopo don't show up in the stats.
--- Here's a picture of Roy Lewis in action for the Steelers the other night. While this story doesn't mention it, everything I've heard is that Lewis is doing well in Pittsburgh.
All for now.
