Last night’s game had kind of a dual purpose — playing Oregon and sending out this version of Husky Stadium.
And that was reflected in the coverage, including that in our paper this morning as we had a big package of stories on the renovation of the stadium. That includes this main story looking back at the history of the stadium. Here’s the main page for all of our Husky Stadium coveragge, which includes some video, timeline and polls.
As for the game, here’s my main story on Oregon’s win, Steve Kelley’s column saying that Oregon’s offense ultimatelly proved to be too much, and our notebook that leads off with the 1991 reunion but also has a lot of stuff on the game. And here’s our main Husky page with links to everything, including the 2-Minute Drill, stats and a gallery.
