The Broncos (10-2, 7-1 Mountain West Conference) have won the last two Maaco Bowls against Utah and Arizona State by a combined 55 points, but face stiffer competition against a Washington team that closed its season with four conference wins in five games, including upsets over Oregon State and Stanford.
The Huskies (7-5, 5-4 Pac-12), who finished fifth in the Pac-12, are coming off a disappointing loss to in-state rival Washington State in their final game of the regular season. A win over the Broncos on Saturday would give the Huskies their highest win total in a season since they went 8-4 in 2001.
Kickoff is slated for 12:30 p.m. PT at Sam Boyd Stadium and the game will be televised on ESPN.
