Getting Ready For The Opener!
Husky Stadium was alive and kickin' today in preparation for tomorrow's big season opening football game against No. 11 LSU. Facility staff have been working feverishly to get the stadium and the UW's new pregame trailgate party (The Zone) ready to host 72,500 fans.
The Zone will open at 1 p.m. and features music, food, beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic), games, large screen televisions that will feature national and regional games of interest, and the official 950 KJR AM & Washington ISP Network pregame radio shows. Food for The Zone will be provided by the Metropolitan Grill, Elliott's Oyster House and Wing Dome.
The Big "W" Club hosted a sold-out golf tournament today at The Golf Club at Redmond Ridge. Approximately 150 UW letterwinners and friends of the program played in the tournament, which was organized by Big "W" Club executive director Elliot Silvers and the club's board of directors.

Husky fans, don't forget the team arrives at Husky Stadium for the Dawg Walk between approximately 5:30-5:45 p.m. They will walk through The Zone and into the stadium to begin preparations for the game. With 20:00 remaining on the pregame countdown clock, the siren will sound and Coach Sark has asked all Husky fans to make their way into the stadium. Once the team returns to the field, a loud, proud and barking Husky Stadium will welcome them back onto the field!
If you can't make the game, don't forget the multitude of ways to follow it live. The game will be televised live by ESPN (Mark Jones & Bob Davie, analysts) and ESPN360.com. A live radio broadcast will also be available through the Washington ISP Sports Network (Bob Rondeau, Chuck Nelson, Elise Woodward) and GoHuskies.com. A second, national radio broadcast will also be available through the Sports USA Radio Network. GoHuskies.com will also feature a live statistical Gametracker.
