Halftime observations

Tied at the end of one, and tied at the end of two. If it’s tied at the end of four, it’s a major victory for this team no matter what happens.
That said, there’s no reason right now the Huskies can’t win this one. All of the stats are just about even and other than Adrian Peterson, OU doesn’t appear to have anything more special than UW has.
UW gets the ball first to start the second half — I sense that being a real key. We’ll see which team adjusts better.
Another key will be stamina. UW hasn’t done any rotating on its O-line and little on its defensive front, other than the nickel.
The Oklahoma radio guys are going crazy over how well Scott White is playing. This may be the game that completely redeems White in the eyes of Huskies fans.
Dashon Goldson looks pretty good and the nickel defense looks a lot better with him in the game. But after spelling Fountaine for a play or two, he appears to be being used only in the nickel right now.
Interesting to see Quintin Daniels in the game at some key spots at receiver. UW’s depth at that spot appears to be returning.
In other interesting substitution news, Tim Williams got his first action for a play at tight end and Chris Hemphill was also in for a few plays at safety in place of Jason Wells.
The 82-yard punt by Sean Douglas in the first quarter was a school record. The record had been 80 by Derek McLaughlin against Oregon in 2002. Good omen – UW won that game, as well.
Douglas’ previous long was 78 in 2004 against WSU.
