In what was the biggest game in Husky Stadium in over a decade, the Dawgs dominated the visiting 7th ranked Stanford Cardinal. The stadium was packed with over 72,000 fans and it was easily as loud as and Seahawks game. The Huskies jumped out early and often on their way to a 44-6 beatdown. This will definitely bump the Dawgs up in the rankings.
The Washington Huskies welcomed the Portland State Vikings into town last Saturday for their last tune up game before conference play starts on the road next week in Tucson. The Huskies put up 4 touchdowns in the first half on their way to a 41-3 victory. The next time the Huskies will be home is their Friday night matchup against Stanford, when Mountlake will be the center of the college football world for that night.
The NFL season kicked off last weekend with the Miami Dolphins coming into town. The crowd was hyped up for the season to start as were the players. Both offenses struggled a bit to get points on the board, but the Seahawks struck when they needed to late in the game to pull out a 12-10 victory. The date also marked the 15th anniversary of the 9-11 attack, so there were a lot of service members on hand for pregame ceremonies.
