The Huskies are feeling pretty good about themselves in the wake of their win over Fresno.
Meeting with the media on Monday, several players took coach Tyrone Willingham's lead in stressing that they're not just looking for four more wins to get into a bowl ... they want a big-time bowl ... preferably the one in Pasadena.
That will be the focus of my main story for the Tuesday paper.
Other notes from today's press gathering:
Never miss a local story.
UW linebacker E.J. Savannah is expected to miss the UCLA game with a broken thumb suffered against Fresno. His longer-term prognosis awaits further tests.
Also unknown is the availability of cornerback Dashon Goldson, who sat out the FS game with a high-ankle sprain.
Linebacker Dan Howell, who missed the Fresno State game due to the death of his father, will be back this week.
The Washington-Arizona game Sept. 30 in Tucson was not selected for television coverage, and kickoff remains tentatively set for 7 p.m.
Washington's weekly award winners were Wallace (defense), Stanback (offense) and Caesar Rayford (special teams) and true freshman quarterback Jake Locker (service teams). Rayford, a junior from Spanaway, blocked the PAT that clinched Washington's win, 21-20.
