Monday links — Huskies preparing for a Holiday

A year ago today, we were writing post-mortems on the Husky season, a campaign that had ended with a Dec. 5 win against Cal.
On this Dec. 6, the Huskies are instead looking at three-and-a-half weeks of bowl preparation for their rematch with Nebraska on Dec. 30 in San Diego.
Here’s my revised story from today’s paper on yesterday’s news.
Also, here’s a complete lineup of the bowl games with TV situation, along with a column from Bud Withers examining the bowl scene.
As might be expected, the view in Nebraska isn’t quite as rosy about having both a rematch with UW but also a return to the Holiday Bowl, a comedown from the BCS bid the Cornhuskers seemed destined for much of the season. The Omaha World-Herald reports that Nebraska may not travel in quite the same numbers as in the past.
Nebraska AD Tom Osborne admitted to the Lincoln Star-Journal that it was “unusual” to get a rematch with UW but noted that the Holiday Bowl simply didn’t have a lot of other options.
And the the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that bowl officials were surprised that Nebraska fell to them, expecting all along to get Missouri (which I can vouch for in the conversations I had with bowl officials ahead of time).
Anyway, I’ll be on the Husky Roundtable this morning on KJR-AM at 8:20 a.m. with to talk about it with Hugh Millen and Chuck Nelson. And UW coach Steve Sarkisian is also expected to be on KJR at 9:20 a.m.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— UW has a bowl central page set up with all the relevant information about the game.
— ESPN.com has a good breakdown of the matchup.
— NFL Draft Expert Rob Rangs writes that Jake Locker helped steady his draft prospects with the winning pass to beat WSU.
— In case you missed it, WSU announced Sunday it is keeping Paul Wulff as coach, which could mean that there will be no turnover in the conference this year unless someone leaves voluntarily. It doesn’t appear anyone will be fired.
— Oregon, as expected, is going to play for the National Title and Stanford is headed to the Orange Bowl, which will help the coffers of every school in the Pac-10 as the conference will divvy up two BCS paychecks for the first time since 2002.
— ESPN.com’s Ivan Maisel says the Pac-10’s nine-game schedule is why the conference got its two BCS bids.
All for now.
