PROVO, Utah - The Huskies arrived at the site of their 2010 season-opening game against BYU without incident, and now the team has decamped to its hotel to gather for meetings. A contingent of student-athletes, coaches and staffers boarded a charter plane for a brief flight to Provo Municipal Airport.
Once everyone was on the ground, the team headed over to LaVell Edwards Stadium for a walk-through. The key was to acclimatize the student-athletes to the advanced altitude and get them used to new environs. A few Huskies fans greeted the team as the buses pulled up to the scenic stadium, which is set in view of the picturesque Wasatch Mountains. While the team got a chance to stretch out their legs, a few staff members met with the talent/producers from CBS College Sports, the broadcast unit who will air the Huskies-BYU game Saturday evening. Later, the talent met with QB Jake Locker and Coach Steve Sarkisian to discuss some broad parts of the upcoming game.
In total, the Huskies spent just over 30 minutes at LES. The majority of the real work was done at a walk-through on Friday morning in Seattle.
After the walk-through, the buses headed south (facing traffic) to dinner at Magleby's in Springville, Utah. What greeted the team was a spread of BBQ ribs, prime rib and penne pasta.
The group made short work of the meal before heading to their hotel and gathering for position meetings. Following meetings and a snack, the Huskies have lights out. Because the day has been so eventful, the goal is to keep the players rested and off their feet at night.
