The Washington Huskies kick off the 2008 college football season tonight traveling to the Willamette Valley to visit the Oregon Ducks.
The Ducks are favored by two TD's but if you bet on these type of things they probably won't cover the spread because the gap between the two teams has been shrinking over the past six months.
One key for Washington in this one is hanging on to the ball. Young skill players tend to put the ball on the ground and if that happens the Huskies will be in trouble quickly. If Washington can eliminate the mistakes they have a chance to pull an upset in the opener.
I will be back around game time.
