- UW announced long-awaited changes as alcohol will now be sold at concession stands other than the Zone and no fan re-entry will be allowed after halftime. The hope on UW’s part is that fans will not be headed out to the parking lot and there will be more butts in seats at the start of the 3rd quarter. Other changes include a move to digital tickets and no cash at concession stands.

The no-re-entry policy is something UW admins have considered for a few years to help reduce the number of empty seats early in the third quarter. Made sense to wait until beer/wine was more accessible to implement that.— Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) August 11, 2021
- The Huskies were in full pads for the first time yesterday and there was plenty to recap. Here’s Mike Vorel’s practice recap.
- Dawgman has their own recap from day 6.
- Here’s Christian Caple reflecting with 10 thoughts on practice so far.
- Bill Connelly released his final preseason SP+ rankings and Washington comes in #1 in the Pac-12 at 13th overall. 3 other opponents also rank in the top-25 as do the 2 misses for UW from the Pac-12 South.
Dylan Morris just threw consecutive 20-, 15- and 12-yard touchdowns in a 7-on-7 drill — two to Terrell Bynum, one to Devin Culp. Three of his best throws in the first six practices. Earned a big high five from John Donovan.— Mike Vorel (@mikevorel) August 11, 2021
