Couple quick notes

Kind of strangely, given what a big area this is, the Huskies are staying at the same hotel as the Houston Texans, who are in town to play the Raiders Sunday.
I actually ran into former Husky Mark Bruener in the elevator and said a quick hello and he said he was looking forward to seeing some old faces.
Another former Husky, Bryan Pittman, also plays for the Texans. If you remember Pittman’s story, he played only one year at UW as a walk-on deep snapper, in 1997. He was out of football for a few years before getting into a tryout camp for deep snappers and getting signed and he is now in his fifth year in the league.
Apparently, the Texans — like most NFL teams — usually don’t travel until the day before. But the team decided to leave a day early for this game, giving the players a night in the Bay Area.
J.R. Hasty did not make the trip. I don’t have the full travel roster but am assuming that leaves UW with just the three tailbacks who played a week ago.
— The Huskies walked through the new Stanford Stadium this afternoon after landing. UW has not played in the new Stadium, which opened last season.
