Monday morning links and notes

A new week also means something of an ending for the Huskies — their final practice this year in Seattle. After a workout this morning, the Huskies will break for three days and then head to San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl against Baylor on Friday.

Baylor has settled in as something of a consensus as a 9.5-point favorite, with the over-under reaching a high of 79.

Also settling in is UW’s offensive line, Nick Wood having earned a spot as Colin Tanigawa’s replacement for the game, which I wrote about for today’s paper.

In some other UW-related news. …

— I also did a little Q-and-A for the web site CollegeFootballBowlSeason.com.

— UW’s official Alamo Bowl notes and media guide are now available on-line. One thing of note — both Huard brothers will be handling some radio duties, Damon Huard on UW’s broadcast and Brock Huard on ESPN’s.

— A crew from the ACC will officiate the game.

— CoachSark’s site shows some of what is involved in packing for the bowl.

— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller and David Ubben throw in some Alamo Bowl talk in their debate of the merits of the Pac-12 and the Big 12.

— Lots of interesting stuff around college football from TheWizofOdds.

And here’s a quick recap of news involving some former Huskies in the NFL. …

Jake Locker was 11-16 for 108 yards and a touchdown after relieving Matt Hasselbeck in the fourth quarter. Here’s a column detailing the QB conundrum in Tennessee.

Mason Foster continues to lead all NFL rookies in tackles and now has 71 (here is the list).

Marcel Reece had one carry for 26 yards and three catches for 16, but couldn’t prevent the Raiders from a crushing collapse against the Lions that also was a severe blow to the Seahawks’ playoff chances.
