Off to Corvallis

It’s a sunny day in Seattle as I type this, getting ready to hop in the car and drive to Corvallis.
But forecasts still call for rain tonight which shouldn’t really favor anybody.
On to the links (and not the golfing kind):
— Here’s my preview story for today focusing on the recent history of the series favoring OSU and how the game could be a turning point for UW.
One paragraph that didn’t make it into the story concerned the fact that OSU plays man defense a lot in the secondary. That will put a premimum on UW’s receivers to make plays tonight and get off the press coverage at the line of scrimmage. That isn’t something UW has been great at this year. If the Huskies can hit a few plays early, it will loosen up the middle for the running game. If not, UW may have a lot of quick possessions.
— Here’s our capsule preview.
Bud Withers examines the rest of the Pac-10 today.
— The Oregonian says the setting is perfect for OSU to clinch a bowl game tonight, but that the Beavers better be wary of Jake Locker.
— The Corvallis Gazette-Times weighs in on Yvenson Bernard’s potential impact tonight.
— The Salem Statesman-Journal has this breakdown of the game as well as a general preview.
— Finally, here’s a link to the interview a few of you told me about with Oregon lineman Jeff Kendall on the Jim Rome Show where Kendall took a little swing at the Huskies, saying to “ask Washington how physical our offense is.” Given that Oregon gained 661 yards against UW and 465 on the ground, I think he’s got a point. And sounds as if he was just trying to play along with the nature of the Rome show. But I’m sure someone on the UW side will remember this a year from now. UW and Oregon play early next year, on Sept. 13 in Eugene.
