Today the Huskies play USC at 4 p.m. Gus Johnson is calling the game on Fox so there’s even more motivation to watch this game. Predictions will be posted tomorrow morning but it’s not secret that most people don’t favor the Huskies in this game. The betting line in this game favors USC by about 11. All the experts are picking Matt Barkley and his two All-American receivers to win. And they probably will. Sure, the Huskies have a decent chance of an upset but it would be just that if they won. An upset.
But do you remember the last time USC came to town? Jake Locker cemented his place in Husky fans memories. Sark proved himself in his 3rd game being here. A program started their march upwards. Yes, that march has gone a little slower than all of us would have liked but at least we have actual win totals to point to that show improvement. That doesn’t really happen with the baseball team in this city. The Huskies are playing against the odds tomorrow but last time USC was in Seattle this happened:
For 7 or 8 years, being a Husky fan felt fairly hopeless. Then this happened. I haven’t felt hopeless about a Husky football game since.
Playing in Seattle, at home, has now turned into an advantage for the Dawgs. Just like the good ol’ days. I’m hoping that it stays that way at 4 P.M. today.
