SEATTLE - The numbers aren't pretty. When looking at the statistics for Washington's defense in 2009, there's one thought that keeps getting recycled; they look an awful lot like 2008's defensive numbers.

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.

In hearing coach Steve Sarkisian's opening comments, he's very happy that it's finally game week, especially given the fact that he's naturally an impatient person. "It's football season," he said. "That's why we're here and it's what we do. That's the mentality for us. It's been a long time coming, a lot of blood, sweat and tears for everybody.
