Huskies arrive in San Antonio, and a few other links

The Huskies have made it to San Antonio to begin on-site preparation for their Alamo Bowl game Dec. 29 against Baylor — and they probably did it in less time than it took the average shopper to get from one end of the mall to the other today (judging by my experience, anyway).

There are some details here from GoHuskies.com, a link that also includes the video of Steve Sarkisian below.

And here’s the story from the San Antonio Express-News on UW’s arrival.

Not a lot of news in the video, though Sarkisian does touch on the health of the team (the main concern remaining safety Will Shamburger — he says they’ll need to wait a few more days to figure out of Shamburger will be available) and his thoughts on the prospect of a high-scoring game. The Huskies will resume practice tomorrow, a workout that will resemble a usual Monday practice during the season.
