Wednesday afternoon, the Pac-12 announced the game times and television information for the first three weeks of the season. Included in the announcement were all of the Thursday and Friday night games.
The Huskies will have at least one nationally televised game, when they take on UCLA in Pasadena on November 15. ESPN2 will televise the Friday night showdown at 6:00 p.m. PST.
Three other UW games also have their game times. On August 31, the renovated Husky Stadium will open its gates for the first time when the Huskies take on Boise State. The game will kick off at 7:00 p.m. PDT and will be televised on the new Fox Sports 1.
The next week, the Huskies travel to Chicago to take on Illinois at Soldier Field. A lot of Dawg fans will have to catch this one at the bar, as it is on the Big Ten Network. Make sure you note the time difference, as it kicks off at 4:00 p.m. CDT or 2:00 p.m. PDT.
Finally, the one everyone wants to know: the Apple Cup. For the second season in a row, it will be on the Friday after Thanksgiving, rather than the traditional Saturday. To make travel plans even more complicated, the game kicks off at 12:30 p.m. PST. Hopefully the tryptophan from the turkey will wear off in time to get to Husky Stadium the next day. If not, you’ll be able to watch the game on Fox.
The rest of the schedule will be announced later this offseason and throughout the season.
