UW will return to the practice field tomorrow morning to begin preparation for its bowl game — even if it doesn’t know yet exactly which bowl game and opponent. Teams can practice if bowl eligible before the official invitation come. Teams are also not limited to 15, though it is often thought they are, though that remains the basic goal for most teams to get during the run-up to the bowl.
For now, here are a few links to start a Friday. …
