(AP) - Chris Petersen was on the other end of the script when the season began, taking Washington to face his former team at Boise State.
Now it'll be the Huskies' turn to face a former coach when they travel to No. 17 USC (3-1, 1-1 Pac-12) on Thursday night and a reunion with Steve Sarkisian. While the Huskies (2-2, 0-1) have an exceedingly young roster, relying heavily on freshmen and sophomores, there is still a large contingent that was recruited to Washington by Sarkisian and many of his assistants now working for the Trojans.
But from the head coach's perspective, the entire storyline of a team facing a former coach is completely overblown.
