You've had a couple questions, I hopefully have a couple answers:
Q: Will the game Saturday be televised in high definition?
A: Yes. Saturday's game is an FSN national game and as this release last June says, the entire slate of FSN national games will be televised in high definition. Now if it's on your individual cable system I guess could be another issue. But if you have an FSN high def channel, I assume the UW game will be on in high def.
Q: Kirk Herbstreit lists UW as a place he would like to get to for ESPN Gameday. Any chance of that happening this year?
A: Not sure yet. Those things tend to be picked week-by-week based on where the big game of the week is, so the Huskies would have to win a few games to make it happen. Last year there was some buzz about it because ESPN sent a crew out during the summer to scout possible locations at UW --- thought was they were considering coming out for the Ohio State or USC games. That didn't happen, obviously. But I would imagine the preparation they did last year would still be good so they would know what they need to know if they decided to come out here. Certainly, UW has the schedule to make it happen if the Huskies can win a few games. If UW wins its first two games, you could see the Oklahoma game being a possibility. The Notre Dame game would also be a natural if each team is having a rebound year --- or even if maybe just the Huskies are.
