The Huskies are playing too

There is another Pac-10 team in action in Seattle today. The Huskies host Fresno State in, no matter what coach Tyrone Willingham wants you to believe, is a must win game.

The Huskies can't afford to lose a non-league home game, to get into a losing rut prior to Pac-10 play. They need to build momentum.

That's also the thrust of Don Ruiz's story in the News Tribune.

For UW to be successful, however, quarterback Isaiah Stanback has to play better, according to a Bob Condotta piece in today's Times. But the Bulldogs will be tough, as Fresno State has become one of West's better programs.

It will be important for the Pac-10 to play well today, as the conference has high-profile games with Big 12 members Oklahoma, Nebraska, Baylor, among others.
