Thursday Dots: Championship Eve

Dawgs-Ducks II on the horizon

NCAA Football: Oregon at Washington Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

She says, “Baby if you wanna be Dots

You got a lot to learn, close your eyes

Let them melt, let them fire, let them burn”

  • Michael Penix is the Huskies’ leading candidate for national awards, but Rome Odunze has been the most consistent performer throughout the year. There’s very little concern about whether Odunze will perform at a high level on Friday night, but he has even loftier goals for himself. Mike Vorel writes that that Odunze is treating Friday night as an opportunity for himself to put on a show for a national audience.

  • Caple also has a home-and-home discussion with Oregon blogger Tyler Alger. From a Husky point of view, it’s nice to see that the Ducks maintain a healthy fear and respect for the Dawgs. Given the way that last two games have gone between Lanning and Deboer, it’s understandable that there would some concern, or even superstition, on the part of Duck fans.

  • Jon Wilner makes his Pac-12 bowl picks, and within that, his pick for the Pac-12 Championship Game. Wilner likes the Ducks to come out on top and thinks the Huskies will end up in the Fiesta Bowl.

  • Michael Penix spoke to reporters and Dawgman has a summary of his comments. Penix mostly focused on his gratitude for the situation he is in at UW and excitement about getting to play Oregon again on an even bigger stage. He very directly stated that he is not playing hurt, which begs the question of what happened to the pinpoint accuracy that defined the first half of the season.
