Mark Schlabach takes an early (hyper-early, really) shot at predicting the coming season's bowl pairings. And his early take is that the Huskies will sit home again.
Schlabach predicts Georgia vs. Ohio State in the BCS title game.
He sees USC headed for the Rose Bowl, apparently as Pac-10 champs, and Arizona State in the Holiday, as the apparent Pac-10 runners-up.
I don't have any problem with either of those picks, but he puts Oregon State third and Sun Bowl bound. I'm not convinced the Huskies go bowling this season, but from this distance I think they've got at least as much chance as the Beavers.
