Ex-Cal coach Tedford hired at Washington

Jeff Tedford, a former Cal head coach, has agreed to join the staff at Washington as a consultant, Huskies coach Chris Petersen said.

Chris Low ESPN Senior Staff Writer 

It's not quite to the level of Lou Holtz's legendary poor-mouthing, but Washington's Chris Petersen wants no part of the preseason prognostications that his Huskies are ready to challenge nationally. "Since December, I feel great about how good we've gotten without playing any football," Petersen said facetiously. "We're into rankings ... postseason rankings." Washington has a talented nucleus of young talent on offense, led by sophomore quarterback Jake Browning and sophomore running back Myles Gaskin, and returns most of a defense that was the Pac-12's best unit a year ago. "We were right there in every game last year," Petersen said. "So we've got to finish games and make plays. I don't think people understand how difficult it is to get over that hump."

Washington coach Chris Petersen has one major talking point at Pac-12 media days -- making sure reporters know the preseason hype surrounding his team is not coming from him and, in fact, it bothers him. "We have as much hype as the new Pokemon game," he said.

Can Huskies live up to expectations?

Washington will arrive at Pac-12 media days on Friday in an unfamiliar position. ESPN's Football Power Index heavily favors the Huskies to win the Pac-12 North.

Chris Low ESPN Senior Staff Writer 

Tennessee and Washington are both getting a ton of preseason love, to the point that some have suggested the Vols and Huskies could be dark-horse College Football Playoff contenders. Both teams, though, are dragging around long losing streaks to rivals that they will need to snap to make a realistic run. Tennessee has lost 11 straight to Florida and Washington 12 straight to Oregon. Which of those droughts has the best chance of ending this season?

Ted Miller ESPN Staff Writer
