Berkelium97: Washington should open the season with a win over Eastern Washington. Then they have a pair of games that should tell us how good (or bad) they will be this season--vs Hawaii and at Nebraska. If they lose both, the Bears should be favored to win. If they win both...we should be very worried. If they split, then they may be on par with last year's team.
