Familiar faces as Washington hosts Georgia State

SEATTLE (AP) Trent Miles still has the memories even if his time working at Washington was mostly filled with forgettable losses.

Now the head coach at Georgia State, Miles and his staff filled with Washington connections bring the Panthers to Seattle for a matchup with the Huskies on Saturday afternoon.

For Washington (3-0), it serves as the final tuneup with a showdown with Stanford to start Pac-12 play a week off. Georgia State (1-2) provides Washington the final chance to fully put to rest the concerns that were raised in escaping Hawaii and Eastern Washington with wins, and that were slightly calmed in last week's 44-19 romp over Illinois.

Geographically, it's a matchup that makes little sense, although the Panthers are scheduled to play next season at Oregon.
