I'm at the stadium, finally, having endured unusually tough traffic complicated by a wreck on 512 and the police-escorted arrival of the Beaver buses.
It's cool and foggy at the stadium. Only a tiny handful of fans are here, and just a spattering of Husies and Beavers getting lose on the field.
A few minutes before the game, representatives of the Sun Bowl walked through the press box distributing literature. The Sun Bowl is reserved for the No. 3 finisher in the Pac-10, however it could also be home to No. 4 if the Pac-10 winner goes to the national championship game. So, maybe.
Game captains are Sonny Shackelford, Dashon Goldson, Matt Fountain and Clay Walker.
Game time weather: 52 degrees, winds 10 mph, overcast.
I'll plan the usual drill here: Quick posts at the end of each quarter, and then I hope you will weigh in with your impressions after the game while I write for the paper.
