Friday morning links and notes — Off to Salt Lake City

Like the Huskies themselves will be in a few hours, I’m at the airport, getting set for the trip to Salt Lake City.

There’s time, though, for a few links before takeoff. …

— For my story today, I looked at UW’s propensity of late to win the close ones, and the conviction of the coaches and players and it’s due mostly to preparation and feeling comfortable in the moment and not just good fortune. As UW coach Steve Sarkisian alludes to in the story, a reality for the Huskies at the moment is that they are likely to play in a lot of close games, so preparing for how to win close games — specifically, preparing for late-game situations — is paramount.

Bud Withers writes that the best party of the weekend is at Wisconsin.

— After highlighting the rapid change in the betting line in a post last night, worth noting it’s pretty much unchanged this morning.

— A high of 85 expected on Saturday in Salt Lake City. If you heard Steve Sarkisian’s answers this week, you know he seems more concerned about the heat than he does the elevation of 4,226, which he said he didn’t consider a factor.

— Athlon’s Sports includes the UW-Utah game as one of its 10 key storylines of the weekend.

— The Ogden paper has a story on Cort Dennison’s homecoming.

— Here’s all the game coverage from the Salt Lake Tribune.

Ted Miller writes about Utah’s famed student section, known as the MUSS.

— UW’s next opponent is Colorado, which is led by receiver Paul Richardson, who plays the Cougars tomorrow.

— UW commit Cyler Miles helped lead Mullen High to another big win last night.

As noted at the top, a long morning and afternoon of travel now awaits so postings here may be erratic and sporadic the rest of the day.
