Bowl agreements, Nick Montana, UW rising in the computer ratings, and more. …
— The Holiday Bowl officially announced today it has re-upped with the Pac-10 and Big 12 conferences for the 2010-13 seasons. Though read carefully the story as it says the Holiday Bowl gets the No. 2 Pac-10 pick after the BCS. so that means No. 3 overall. No. 2 will go to the Alamo, No. 4 to the Sun, No. 5 to the Vegas and No. 6 to the Emerald. (And those are picks that the bowl committee can make as they aren’t bound to pick in order of finish other than that they can’t skip down to take a team with two more losses than a team they are bypassinig).
— The Huskies are up to No. 31 in the Sagarin ratings, and sixth among Pac-10 teams, though worth noting eight Pac-10 teams are ranked No. 36 or higher. UW is also rated as having played the toughest schedule so far.
— The New York Times has a story on the celebrity sons playing for Oaks Christian, including Montana.
— Here’s a YouTube copy of Jake Locker’s TD run Saturday night.
— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller takes an early look at the UW-Arizona State game.
— RB Kyle Middlebrooks, who visited UW for the Arizona game, says the Huskies are his leader but he wants to take more visits. Scout.com lists Middlebrooks as also having offers from Idaho, San Diego State, WSU and UNLV.
Phil Steele remains unconvinced by the Huskies, picking UW to finish 3-6 in Pac-10 play in his updated conference projections, beating only WSU the rest of the way.
All for now.
