Huskies looking for a big crowd Saturday

Saturday could see one of the better attendances at Husky Stadium this season for the game against Stanford.
It won’t top the season-high of 72,876 against Nebraska (which was heavily fortified by NU fans) but could be the second-highest total of the season.
UW officials said today that 67,400 tickets have been distributed, with an additional 800 high school cheerleaders on the track for the halftime show.
That total includes about 6,500 tickets given to local grade school students as part of a special promotion for this game.
Still, if everyone shows up, it should make for a good crowd.
Here are UW’s other home attendances this season:
Syracuse — 62,418
Nebraska — 72,876
Arizona State — 65,685
Oregon State — 65,235
So far, that’s an average of 66,554 for the season.
That would be a little better than a year ago when UW averaged 64,356 for seven games, as well as 2008, which was 63,640 (all pretty good testaments, by the way, to the overall support for this program given that UW entered this season with seven straight seasons without a bowl).
The last time UW had an attendance average better than what the Huskies are on pace for at the moment is 2007, which was 67,732.
Saturday is the second-to-last home game of the season for UW. The home finale is Thursday night, Nov. 18 against UCLA. Word is the attendance for that one may not top what is expected against Stanford.
