Pre-game warmup

It’s a wet morning as I type this, but the forecast says it’s supposed to dry up and warm up as the day progresses, so the weather may not have much of an impact on the game.
Here’s my preview for today’s game, and as usual in the day-of-game story, I tried to touch on the major themes — Sark vs. Carroll, Aaron Corp, etc. But I also tried to make the point that this is the clearest gague yet of exactly where the Huskies are in their rebuilding project. USC is obviously the standard in the conference and if the Huskies can compete with the Trojans, no reason they can’t compete with everyone left on the schedule, barring injuries. So we’ll really see where UW is in a few hours.
The LA Times had stories today about each of the quarterbacks — Corp and Jake Locker also heavily discussing Locker’s potential baseball future with the Angels.
Scott Wolf of the LA Daily News wrote that Carroll seemed to be trying to create a distraction this week by prolonging the announcement of a QB starter. Also an interesting quote from USC LB Chris Gallipo that “the guys in our conference have no respect for us.”
The Orange County Register lists five reasons UW means more for USC than Ohio State, rates the teams by position and also has a Jeff Miller column wondering if USC is primed to be an upset victim.and noting that USC’s average score against UW in its last seven wins is 40-16.
ESPN’s Ted Miller has a final injury report..
Also, a couple of UW commit updates from last night.
— In case you missed it, Nick Montana and Erik Kohler and Oaks Christian beat Skyline last night 28.25. Steve Kelley wrote this column including a quote from Montana about how he saw a lot of purple and gold and loved the support. And Mason Kelley wrote this game story.
— A really huge night for Deontae Cooper in his first game since committing to UW as he had 393 yards on 59 carries — yes, that’s what the story says — as Citrus Hill beat Great Oak.
Zach Fogerson shrugged off a shoulder injury to score three TDs for O’Dea.
— And I don’t have links for these, but Chris Young had 134 yards and a touchdown for Auburn in a 48-21 win over Kent-Meridian while Jamaal Kearse had a 20-yard TD catach in a 48-3 Lakes win over White River.
