Sat., Oct. 28: UCLA at Washington
The Washington Huskies, barring injuries, should be at full throttle when the team hosts the UCLA Bruins as October draws to a close.
The teams last met in 2014, where the visiting Bruins defeated the Huskies 44-30. But that was then and this is now. UCLA will not emerge from Seattle with a win. Even they know it. So what will this game look like?
Well, it won’t be the blow out you might think. The Washington Huskies emerge from the bye week on fire, and jump out to a a huge first half lead. So huge, that some may be tempted to leave early to beat stadium traffic home.
But those who stay will be glad they did. The Washington Huskies will need plenty of fan support in this one. With two “make or break” games coming up, the Huskies risk looking past the bad news Bruins, especially after racking up a daunting lead.
But UCLA makes a game of it. This will be the game of two halves. In the first half, the Washington Huskies look unbeatable. In the second half, the Huskies need the home field crowd to win.
