Looking ahead at a few key dates

With the season fast approaching (that must be what this mid-October weather is all about) it may be a good time to review in one handy blog post the relevant dates for what is ahead. So here we go:

— July 26: Pac-12 Media Day in Los Angeles. Steve Sarkisian and running back Chris Polk will represent UW at the event that serves as something of a kickoff to the season. This is also when the official Pac-12 media poll is revealed (judging by all the other pre-season stuff I’ve been seeing, I’m guessing UW will be third in the Pac-12 North behind Oregon and Stanford).

— Aug. 8: First day of fall camp. UW will begin its practices on a Monday at Husky Stadium. One thing to remember is that regardless of when a team starts camp, it only gets 29 practices prior to its first game, so there’s no advantage to starting a day or two earlier or anything. Here’s a good primer on the practice and camp rules for NCAA football.

— Aug. 21: Picture Day. This is again on a Sunday, and comes at what is just about the midway point of fall camp.

— Aug. 26: “Raise the Woof” Celebration. Here are the details.

— Sept. 3: Season opener against Eastern Washington. Huskies will be heavily expected to start out 1-0 for just the third time since 2001 (2006 against San Jose State, 2007 against Syracuse).
