in through petaluma. 72 degrees in san francisco. today we had a high of 70 which average high is 69 degrees. not bad at all but check this out. it's the extended forecast calling for that 90-degree mark by sunday. looks like although we'll have cooler temperatures by monday, the offshore component continues. and right now computer monitors still alluding to the potential of higher gustier offshore winds by monday night through wednesday. and that's when we do increase that potential for high fire danger. we have us some football action on sunday at 1:05. it's the raiders! expect the game time temperature of 75 degrees. kim coyle is going to tell us if that game was sold up coming up in sports. >> no, no! ! we have seen enough of jim harbaugh's post-game handshake but what would his touchdown dance look like? this is scary. all right. with the third practice, is it

>> i can answer one of them i have my inklings on the other one. the raiders made one announcement today but it had nothing to did with carson palmer or kyle boller. there was a sellout so it will air on cbs 5 with the fifth quarter to follow. hue jackson wasn't ready to announce his quarterback decision. he may want to keep the chiefs guessing or maybe unlike some of his players he likes having all the extra media at practice. >> i thought beyonce was in town doing a concert. i had to buy a ticket to get i thought a little justin bieber or lil wayne or someone was here. >> he asked me if i was going to be ready to sit next to him. i said what are you talking about? he said he stinks. you ask him about it. he doesn't look like a stinky guy. he will fit in. the 49ers have the week off and that means there's no
coaches corner segment with dennis and jim harbaugh. but harbaugh made time to appear on another show. >> it's the joe show. the joe show. ♪ [ music ] >> gonna ask some stupid questions to some teammates. >> they said sing a song and i did. that's what came out. that was the first take. >> if you were to do an end zone dance what would do you? do you have one in mind? would you do one for us? >> it should be something out of the '80s, now. >> let's see it. ♪ [ music ] >> that's all i know. look up the '80s, you know? you don't have a whole lot going. we didn't know a lot of dances back in the '80s. >> apparently not.

improve. first up the washington huskies who are 5-1. usually andrew luck gives stanford a huge advantage at quarterback. but washington's keith price leads the pack 12 in touchdown passes. but give luck the nod at dealing with the media. >> this is what i'm supposed to do, getting paid to play. >> you get made? >> no. >> scholarship money.
