2:45: The sun just popped out, but it's not expected to stay long. They're predicting rain for much of the game.

And even if it limits the wide-open Ducks, is there any advantage to them deciding to ride Jonathan Stewart?
The answers will begin in less than two hours: 4:30, FSN.
Meanwhile, I expect our usual gameday routine: I'll pop in with any pregame notes that develop, then add quarterly updates, and then pass it back over to you guys until I can come back with final notes and quotes. I thought this was a great week for discussion on the blog, so I'm looking forward to hearing from you tonight ... especially since this one won't end as late as late week.
3:40 p.m.: As we had heard, the Ducks have indeed just taken the field in new all-white uniforms.
Never miss a local story.
The Huskies are back to their usual gold-purple-gold home uniforms.
4:25: Ducks vs. Huskies and it looks like we have the markings of the smallest crowd of the season here.
4:30: The UW captains today are Anthony Russo, Greyson Gunheim, Marcel Reece and Wilson Afoa.
The clouds seem to have broken a bit. No wind. Fifty-two degrees. Looks like a nice evening for football.
