The Huskies will hit the field today for the first time since the Las Vegas Bowl on Dec. 22. But it’ll take a while.
As UW coach Steve Sarkisian detailed in his press conference Monday, the Huskies will begin practice around 8:30 p.m. today, part of their plan to break out of their routine at times this spring and get the players to perform outside of their comfort zone. Practices will also begin at 8:30 p.m. Thursday and then next Tuesday and Thursday. Practices will then begin at 8:30 a.m. when UW begins the second half of spring practice on April 2. Saturday practices will begin at 11:30 a.m.
I’ll have full coverage in this space afterward — even if it takes ’til midnight.
