Polk and Fogerson are UW's 'Bread and Butter'

Steve Sarkisian is quite comfortable using a small army of running backs during the course of a season.

Dawg Blog - Idaho

We're back at it, and the Washington Huskies' next opponent is the Idaho Vandals. The Huskies haven't lost to the Vandals in over a century, and have never lost to them at Husky Stadium - but the Huskies have never faced UI riding a 15-game losing streak either, so this week holds intrigue on a number of fronts. The two mix it up at Husky Stadium Saturday at 12:30 p.m.

It was two head football coaches ago that I last covered a UW practice, so a lot has changed since I was last in Husky Stadium as a member of the media. Here are some of my observations from Saturday's practice, the last official practice of fall camp. The first thing that popped into my head was the fast pace. Wow do these guys ever get things done in a hurry.

Dawgman Insider Blog: August 2009, PART TWO

With the days ticking ever closer to Washington's September 5th clash with LSU, the more Steve Sarkisian is thinking about the game. More specifically, how the mechanics of the game are going to go. With that in mind, as well as the thought that he wants his team as fresh as possible going into their battle with the Bayou Bengals, it appears that full pads are done for fall camp.

Griffin, offense shine in evening practice

It was a perfect evening at Husky Stadium for the 12th practice of fall camp and the offense definitely had one of it's better nights making several plays in the 11-on-11 team session.
