Monday means a new week for the Washington Huskies, though it’s hardly just any week. The opponent this week is Oregon, not only the team to beat in the Pac-12 North (and the Pac-12 itself) but also one of UW’s longest-standing and most-heated rivals.
So yeah, an important week. And Monday will bring with it all the usual features, including the Husky Roundtable on KJR-AM at 8:20 a.m., where I will join Hugh Millen, Chuck Nelson and Mitch Levy to talk about the Stanford game and look ahead, as well as UW coach Steve Sarkisian’s weekly press conference at noon.
Sarkisian will also have his radio show on KJR-AM and the Husky Radio Network at 4:30 p.m.
