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.
It was a beautiful early fall day at Husky Stadium as the 8th ranked Huskies welcomed the Idaho Vandals from the Sun Belt Conference. This one wasn’t expected to be close, and it lived up to the promise. The Huskies pummeled Idaho 59-13. Jake Browning had 5 touchdown passes and the defense was stellar as usual.
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.
