The Washington Huskies first fielded a football team in 1889. In the early 1900's the Huskies had remarkable success under head coach Gil Dobie, who managed to coach the team to incredible 68 straight wins. Washington has made 30 bowl game appearances, won 2 national championships, and 15 conference titles. In one of college football's most memorable games, the Huskies played Oklahoma in the 1985 Orange Bowl. The Sooner Schooner wagon was accidentally driven on the field after a penalty nullified an OU field goal attempt. The ensuing attempt was blocked, shifting momentum to Washington who would win the game 28-17. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for Washington Huskies football tickets.
2013 Washington Season Preview
The Washington Huskies have been competitive under head coach Steve Sarkisian, but they have yet to make the leap that would put them in contention for a PAC-12 title. With Sarkisian entering his 5th year as the leader of the Huskies, it appears 2013 could be the breakthrough that Washington fans have been waiting for. The key to the breakthrough rests on the shoulders of senior quarterback Keith Price. Price regressed in his junior season after throwing for over 3,000 yards and more than 30 touchdowns as a sophomore. The Huskies will be in better position for a PAC-12 title if Price is able to bounce back after a rough 2012. Junior running back Bishop Sankey returns after a breakout season that saw him compile more than 1,400 yards on the ground and 16 touchdowns. Leading wide receiver Kasen Williams returns to be the primary target again for Price. Williams finished 2012 with 77 catches. The Huskies open their season at home against Boise State and they will welcome conference foes Oregon and state rival Washington State to Husky Stadium.

Washington Huskies Football 1 1
How they will do The Husky football team will be a solid team this year with some good recruiting class. The quarterback job will be hard to fill but with Nick Montana coming in they will have a solid first string and back up. They also have a good defense to back up the offense. but after watching the year they beat USC the football team will be able to fight to the end. Even last year was good for them when they made it to a bowl game and they won it as well. But the Huskies will be over .500 this year and make it to a bowl game. September 1, 2011
