Washington ready for big weekend

It won't match the hype or national title ramifications of the Alabama-LSU game, but out West, the Washington-Oregon game is pretty huge in its own right. This will be the last game ever played in Husky Stadium before major renovations are done and Washington will also be bringing in double-digit official visitors, including some of the top players in the region.

Oregon has owned this rivalry as of late winning the last seven games, several in blowout fashion. The Huskies have arguably their best team in several years and if there was ever a time to end their losing streak to the Ducks, this would be it.

When you're hosting multiple players like the Huskies are, you always want a few committed prospects in the group to help sell the program when the coaches aren't around. Quarterback Cyler Miles (Denver, Colo./Mullen) is a strong personality, a natural leader and a great guy to have around to pump up the program.
