Syracuse has already landed in Seattle and will hold a light walk-through at Husky Stadium tonight. Washington should have a more appropriate welcome set for Saturday, when the two teams will square off at Husky Stadium (kickoff at 4 p.m.).
In the Seattle Times, beat writer Bob Condotta takes a look at the rebuilding project Syracuse is undertaking with new coach Doug Marrone, a former Orange lineman who always dreamed of coaching for his alma mater. And much like Steve Sarkisian here at the UW, Marrone wanted to change the culture at Syracuse.
"He came in with rules, and the people who didn't want to follow the rules are gone, and those who did want to follow stayed," said senior linebacker Derrell Smith. "The players who are here now are a lot closer than we were before."
