The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

Thursday links — Live chat at 1 p.m.

The Huskies are hitting the field early today, praciting at 10:45 a.m., and then hitting the road, traveling to Nebraska in the afternoon.

Given that timing, let’s hold our usual Thursday live chat today at 1 p.m., after the team has practiced and Steve Sarkisian meets the media for the final time before Saturday’s game at Nebraska.

Now for a few links. …

— My main story for today’s paper was a look back at the “Medford Seven,” a reference to the seven UW football players involved in a car accident on I-5 near Medford, Ore., in 1991 — on the same weekend as the football team went to Nebraska, making for kind of an odd anniversary this year.

— Here’s the coverage map for Saturday’s game, indicating whether the game is on ABC or ESPN in your area.

— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller picks Nebraska but likes UW to beat the spread.

— Miller also says the battle of the lines will be a key one to watch Saturday.

— Here’s some video of ESPN.com’s Pat Forde talking about the UCLA-Texas and UW-Nebraska games (short version: he expects “Nebraska to control Washington.”)

— HuskerExtra.com says the Cornhuskers have to stop Chris Polk to win.

— Nebraska could be without starting left guard Andrew Rodriguez Saturday.

Jon Wilner ranks UW seventh in his Pac-12 power poll.

Bud Withers has a couple of good items on where WSU went wrong and on realignment in his Pac-12 Confidential blog.

— If you’ve got $5,000 you can own the FernDawg.

— Lots of links around the Pac-12 from Vince Grippi.

— Here’s a good look at all the Pac-12 games for this week along with TV listings.

All for now.
