Tuesday lunchtime notes — UW-Nebraska a hot ticket

UW is hitting the field in a little while for practice, going at 1 the rest of the week with kickoff set for 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Until then, a few notes to pass the time:
— UW coach Steve Sarkisian’s stint on the Pac-10 conference call this week was short and didn’t really yield any news, or much different than what he had said on Monday. Maybe most interesting was his assessment of his biggest worry about facing Nebraska’s defense. He said his biggest concern “is about our protections and our ability to block them up.” Not really news there, to be sure, that the matchup of UW’s OL against Nebraska’s DL will be key, but there’s the public acknowledgement from the coach.
StubHub.com issued a press release today saying that demand is huge for the UW-Nebraska game and that “in fact, it’s the highest grossing college football game of the week on StubHub.com. There are over 600 tickets still available, starting at prices in the mid-$100s: So far, fans have paid an average of $196 to see the game, scooping up tickets for as low as $35 (Upper Sideline 50) and as high as $648 (Lower Sideline 26). Washington buyers outnumber Nebraska buyers 2:1, but there are a significant number of traveling Nebraska fans.”
— Here’s a report on Bo Pelini’s press conference today from HuskerExtra.com.
— And another from the NebraskaStatePaper, including a quote from receiver Niles Paul that the team went harder in Monday’s practice than any other Monday this year.
— And a practice report from the same outlet.
— ESPN.com’s Bruce Feldman has a brief preview of the game, though it’s an Insider blog.
All for now.
