Will Washington win big?

That remains to be seen, but our Adam Rittenberg has the Huskies as just a bit overrated heading into this season. He sees preseason top 15 as just a bit of a stretch for a Chris Petersen bunch that is barely over .500 in Pac-12 play in the coach's two seasons. Most pressing questions (Insider)

Washington is going through its second full scrimmage this morning. Since the Huskies open with Rutgers at 11 am PT on 9/3, coaches decided to mirror this scrimmage off that game. The team stayed in a hotel last night, had a team dinner and went through a 6:30 am wake up today in preparation. Coaches are hoping this mock game situation helps to adjust any kind of "body clock" issues (to borrow Stanford's term) the team could have next Saturday.
