In the moments after their 59-7 beatdown of Colorado, the Huskies were already watching the late UCLA-Arizona game in the UW locker room. The Huskies seemed to agree with Larry Stone: The Colorado rout was nice, but it won’t mean as much if they don’t put up a fight at UCLA on Friday night (6 o’clock, ESPN2).
UW, by the way, hasn’t defeated the Bruins in the Rose Bowl since 1995.
The Huskies were scheduled to have a team meeting this evening (one normally held on Monday), and with no classes on Monday because of Veterans’ Day, they’ll practice a little later in the morning than usual. Steve Sarkisian will not hold his usual noon press conference Monday; instead, he’ll be available for a media briefing around 1 o’clock after practice.
UW will then practice as usual on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings before heading to L.A.
