UW’s Pac-12 opener could wind up being national game of the week.
Huskies have won five in a row over rebuilding Bears.
Petersen, a former UO assistant, is 2-0 vs. Ducks, but Mariota and Co. are a national-title contender.

UW has lost eight in a row in the series, including last year’s 53-24 stunner in Tempe.
