The Huskies have a notable football legacy dating back to success in the 1980s and 90s, but they were mostly dormant through the 2000s, including an embarrassing 0-12 2008 season. But head coach Steve Sarkisian has turned things around with three straight bowl seasons, and Washington could be poised for a breakout in 2013. Hope begins on defense (39th overall in 2012), where last year’s sophomore-heavy crew is highly intact for this fall. Quarterback Keith Price is talented but took a major step backward last year. It wasn’t really his fault though, as he had to deal with an offensive line that had more holes than swiss cheese. He has decent targets, if given enough time to reach them. Running back Bishop Sankey rushed for 1,439 yards and 16 touchdowns in his sophomore season last year, but with little else going on in the running game, Washington’s offense overall was a disappointment last year. They’ll need to improve upon it with a better O-line and a balanced rushing attack. Still, the offense will be better and the continuity of the defense should help them improve as well, making Washington likely for a fourth straight bowl.
The Washington Huskies are members of the Pac 12 Conference. They operate under head at Husky Stadium, although they have been playing at the Seattle Seahawks’ CenturyLink Field while Husky is being renovated. The Huskies have two national titles, 15 conference titles, 33 bowl appearances, and have major rivalries with Washington State and Oregon. They will also play Illinois at Chicago’s Soldier Field this year. Washington is a noted school for producing quarterbacks, such as Warren Moon, Chris Chandler, Mark Brunell, Damon Huard, and Jake Locker. This season the Huskies look to be atop the Pac-12 and Gold Coast Tickets does not want you to miss out on the action.
