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.
2016 Washington Season Preview
The Washington Huskies were increasingly competitive a season ago, losing only a single game by more than 14 points. The Huskies will look to build off this experience and come into 2015 with optimism that they can compete for a wide open PAC-12 North title. The Huskies will rely on talented, but unproven Jeff Lindquist at quarterback. Chris Peterson’s high powered offensive attack focuses heavily on the quarterback position, as well as running back, of which the Huskies will have one of the best in the conference. Dwayne Washington will start for Washington at running back, coming off an almost 700 yard junior campaign that included 9 touchdowns. The biggest question mark for the Huskies coming into 2015 will be on defense. Washington is slated to start 6 sophomores on the defensive side of the ball, and may have trouble stopping the aerial attacks of their PAC-12 North rivals. Top games on the Washington Huskies 2015 Schedule are at Boise State, and in Seattle against Oregon, Arizona, and Washington State.
