Huskies-Cougs to again open Pac-10 play

Washington and Washington State opened and closed Pac-10 play against each other last season, and it looks as if they will do so again this year.
Neither school has released its official schedule for the 2008-09 season, but other schools have, and the process of elimination indicates that the Cougars and Huskies will play the first and last weeks of the Pac-10 season.
Cal recently released its schedule, showing that the Bay Area schools will host the Arizona schools for the first weekend of conference play (Jan. 2-4) and play at those schools on the last weekend (March 5-7). Oregon also just released its schedule showing that the Oregon schools will host the LA schools the first weekend and play at those schools the last weekend. That means UW and WSU have to play each other on those two weekends.
Given that UW opened the 2007-08 conference season hosting the Cougars, then finished it playing at WSU, I’m thinking a switch could be in order this year with the Huskies opening this conference season in Pullman (either Jan. 3, a Saturday, or Jan. 4, I would imagine) and closing it with the Cougars at home.
Cal’s schedule shows that it will play at Washington on Jan. 10, meaning Stanford will be coming to Seattle on Jan. 8, and that it will host the Huskies on Feb. 5 (meaning UW would go to Stanford on Feb. 7). Oregon’s schedule shows it will host UW on Jan. 15 (meaning UW likely at OSU on Jan. 17) and visiting the Huskies on Feb. 14 (meaning UW plays at Oregon State on Feb. 12).
The Pac-10 tournament is March 11-14 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
UW is still in talks to add one more non-conference game before it announces its complete schedule.
