Happy Monday, everyone. I expect this week to fly by, with Thanksgiving on Thursday and a 12:30 kickoff for Friday’s Apple Cup at Husky Stadium. (Suppose I should note that that’s 12:30 p.m., by the way; you never know about kickoffs these days with the Pac-12 and its TV partners, right?)

A couple scheduling notes:

Steve Sarkisian will hold his regular noon press conference today at UW. It’s his final Monday press conference of the year.

— On Tuesday, all UW players and assistant coaches will be available for post-practice interviews. There will be no player availability on Wednesday or Thursday, and Sarkisian’s final availability before the game will be Wednesday.
