Washington Huskies Football 2014 News and Updates
2/7/14 - Last year, the Washington Huskies just made the top 25 ranking, with a 9-4 record (5-4 Pac-12) and a Fight Hunger Bowl victory over BYU to cap it all off. In December, Steve Sarkisian abruptly resigned as head coach in favor of the open position at USC; this year, Chris Petersen (Boise State) will take his spot, toting new offensive and defensive coordinators. Less than two months since being hired, Petersen and staff were able to secure the best possible outcome for their 2014 recruiting class: six of the state’s top players signed, including 4-stars Budda Baker and Kaleb McGary. They join QB K.J. Carta-Samuels, 4-star Naijiel Hale, and Will Dissly. Following National Signing Day, Huskies QB Cyler Miles and WR Damore’ea Stringfellow were suspended indefinitely on alleged assault that Washington fans hope clear up before spring training.

Washington also lost their star QB Keith Price to a shoulder injury; his return to the football field is still unknown. The program finishes their regular season with Oregon State and intrastate rival Washington State in one of the top College Football rivalry games. Tickets to attend The Apple Cup start at $84, down $13 since yesterday.
