The top three college programs based on football tradition are Michigan, Notre Dame and Oklahoma, according to a national survey by Collegiate Licensing Co. and Learfield Sports.
You may notice that two of those schools -- the Irish and the Sooners -- will play in Husky Stadium this fall. (Here's the UW football schedule.)
One other unrelated note: There are reports that a group interested in bringing a Pac-10 affiliated bowl game back to Seattle will make their pitch this week to Pac-10 athletic directors. You may recall that such a bowl made a two-season run earlier this decade, with Stanford (under coach Tyrone Willingham) losing to Georgia Tech, 24-14, in 2001; and Oregon losing to Wake Forest, 38-17, in 2002.
