Not much news out of UW football so far today, but what little news there is was good.
Coach Tyrone Willingham said that previously injured or limited players such as tailback David Freeman and safety Johri Fogerson and receiver Cody Bruns all worked yesterday and are expected to work today when the Huskies take the field at 4 p.m.
Willingham -- like offensive coordinator Tim Lappano yesterday -- seems eager to get a look at Freeman and likely starter Terrance Dailey in a tailback rotation. Willingham also said that the staff was impressed enough by Dailey and Freeman where both likely would have gotten their chances this season even if injuries hadn't sliced away so much of the tailback depth chart.
And finally: For those of you who come across this post instantly, it looks like the ND-UW game is one of the topics for discussion coming up on ESPN's "Pardon the Interruption."
Never miss a local story.
Otherwise, this game doesn't seem to be drawing the national attention that might once have been expected. The UW sports information office said the only national media asking for time with Willingham this week was ESPN, which will apparently devote some time to the game as part of its Saturday "College GameDay" coverage.
