Sunday night notes — More bowl news, and the Huskies get a commit

A few more notes to cap a busy Sunday. …

First, on the Alamo Bowl. …

— Here’s my story looking a little bit at how the matchup came together and what kind of game fans can expect — points, lots of points, I think. And the cliff’s notes of how it came together — UW beat Cal and Utah and will likely travel better; and Baylor is hot and has one of the biggest name QBs in college football right now.

— The UW Alumni Associated has a page set up with info on travel packages and bowl activities and other stuff.

— UWAASportsTravel.com also has some packages put together for the Alamo Bowl.

— ESPN.com has an early look at the game.

— The San Antonio Express-News also says to expect a lot of points.

Rick Hill of the Alamo Bowl has his own blog and detailed what the day was like for bowl officials.

Now on recruiting. …

— All of the various recruiting web sites are reporting that UW has received a commitment from Ryan McDaniel, a running back/linebacker from North Torrance (Calif.) High. He’s the 18th known commit in the class, and told ESPN.com’s Greg Biggins that UW wants him as a running back. That would make him the third RB in the class, joining Tairen Owens and Erich Wilson, the Huskies appearing to add some reinforcements in case Chris Polk doesn’t return — as well as simply bolster the depth there for the future.

Here’s a feature on McDaniel from September in which he said he planned to graduate early and enroll in time for spring football. However, he later suffered a knee injury that caused him to miss the rest of his senior season. UW under Steve Sarkisian has not been shy about taking players with knee injures — both John Timu and Will Shamburger, to name two, signed with the Huskies after suffering knee injuries in high school.

Here’s some video of McDaniel, listed at 6-1, 220 pounds:
