Huskies @ BYU pre-game checklist

Washington opens the 2010 football season Saturday at BYU. Kickoff is 4 p.m. on the West Coast. Here is a quick list of things to know heading into the big game:

College Colors Day
Every Friday is “Purple Friday,” part of the UW’s Real Dawgs Wear Purple campaign, but this Friday, Sept. 3 is extra special. It’s College Colors Day and it’s a national event with alumni and fans donning their favorite team’s school colors. For us, that means wearing purple and gold to work, to school, to the grocery store, to everywhere in between. Tell your boss, “I just had to show the Huskies some love!”

Sark on UWTV
Don’t miss Steve Sarkisian’s weekly press conference every Monday on UWTV. Straight from Sark airs live at noon (PST) from the Don James Center at Husky Stadium. Visit and click “Watch the Webcast” in the upper left corner. These press conferences give you great perspective on last week’s game and this week’s opponent. Plus, Sark is the most motivating guy you know!

BYU Buttons Ready
Each week, we’ll unveil a winner of our popular button slogan contest. The BYU slogan is “COSMO-NOT!” and it’s a reference to the BYU mascot, Cosmo the Cougar. If you’re traveling to Utah for the game on Saturday, you can score a limited edition button at the Husky gathering in Salt Lake City on Friday at Squatter’s Pub Brewery. Click here for info on this special pre-game party.

TV Coverage for the BYU Game
A reminder that Saturday’s game is on CBS College Sports. It is channel 412 on Comcast or 633 in HD. It’s a pay channel so you may have to pony up a few bucks or head to a friend’s house to watch it. The game is also available via satellite on DirecTV channel 613 (Choice Xtra Package) and Dish Network channel 152 (America’s top 200 Package). There does not appear to be any way to watch the game online.

As always, follow Bob Condotta’s Husky Football Blog at The Seattle Times for the latest info on UW.

      Hi Shirley – The Huskies’ only field goal was 54 yards to end the first half, and that was a personal best for kicker Eric Folk.

    The new football uniforms are butt ugly. The white pedal pushers ( white pants)
    look terrible. Also the purple jerseys look awful with the white stripes around the
    shoulders. If you want good recruiting you need to use the Don James uniforms.
    The team needs to look good while playing good. I would send the new ones
    back to Nike. Don Siedel of Don’s mens shop used to outfit both Jim Owens and
    Don James. Why make changes when you have something good going? When I first saw the new look, i thought of little league uniforms.

    So far last years team looks better than this years team, on both sides of the ball!

    Sincere regards,

    Phil Morris
