The Huskies will be headed to Baton Rouge to take on the LSU Tigers on September 8th, a contest which will feature one of the most prolific offenses in the country led by Steve Sarkisian against the intimidating LSU defense returning plenty of talent on that side of the football. Washington will have their work cut out for them in trying to land what would probably be a monumental upset that could help jumpstart the program.
After home games against San Diego State and Portland State (before and after their LSU game), Washington has a bye week September 22nd before nine straight weeks of Pac-12 games commence. UW starts with a home contest with a rebuilding Stanford team on Thursday night before headed for their biggest road test in Oregon against the much hated Ducks. Then they face USC at home. Pretty tough stretch to start out.
Washington then has a host of very winnable games, going to Arizona, hosting Oregon State, playing a Friday night road contest at Cal, then a home game against Utah before concluding with road games against Colorado and Washington State. Remember that with Husky Stadium under renovation, Washington will be playing their home games in CenturyLink Field, home to the Seattle Seahawks.
