Last opponent coming

Expect an announcement in the next few days about the final opponent on Washington’s schedule for the upcoming season.
It’ll be a road game against what is being called “a big name,” but that’s all anyone wants to say right now as the Huskies have twice seen attempts to get one more marquee foe on this year’s slate fall through — apparently, final contracts are just now being signed.
UW thought it had a game set at Georgia Tech — with Tech coming here in the 2007-08 season — but the Yellow Jackets pulled out of that one.
Then UW was in talks with Missouri about a game — with Mizzou returning the favor in 07-08 — but that, too, apparently fell through as word is the team to be announced soon isn’t the Tigers.
Whoever it is, it should make UW’s schedule demonstrably tougher than it was this year.
UW has already announced that it will host LSU and play at Gonzaga during the non-conference slate.
Assuming one more Top 25-type team and the Huskies should be pretty immune from the criticism they got this year when the marquee name on their schedule — other than the now annual game with the Zags — was New Mexico.
