2016 kicks off!

The 2016 college football season kicked of Labor Day weekend with the 14th ranked Washington Huskies looking to do some big things this year. If Saturday was any indication, it could be an exciting year. The Huskies hosted the Rutgers Scarlet Knights from the BigTen and dominated right from the start on way to a 48-13 win. The return of speedster John Ross was a huge impact with three touchdowns in his first game since missing last season with a knee injury.
