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.
2014 Washington Season Preview
TThe Huskies won 9 games in 2013, including a routing of BYU in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. The 2014 season comes with a number of new faces and question marks for the Huskies. Gone is head coach Steve Sarkisian, and in is highly successful Chris Peterson. The Huskies will also have to replace star running back Bishop Sankey, who was lost to the NFL draft. Peterson’s high powered offense will be led by first year starter Cyler Miles. Miles will orchestrate the offense behind what should be one of the best offensive lines in the Pac-12, with 4 senior starters including highly talented left tackle Micah Hatchie. Washington’s defense is looking to have a breakout year in 2014, and should have one of the toughest defensive front 7’s in the nation. The Pac-12 North has become one of the toughest divisions in the nation, and the Huskies will have plenty of interesting games. Their first real test will be September 27th against Stanford. Other good matchups will be October 18th in Eugene against the Ducks, and November 8th against UCLA.

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
