Nick Saban ranked Washington fourth on his ballot.
Well, Apple Cup rivals Chris Petersen and Mike Leach can apparently agree on something.
Petersen and Leach both had the Huskies ranked No. 2 — behind No. 1 Alabama — on the ballots they submitted for the coaches’ poll Sunday.
Their ballots, along with those of all 58 coaches who take part in the USA Today poll, were released to the public as part of the final regular-season poll of the year.
Boise State’s Bryan Harsin was the only other coach to have the Huskies ranked second.
