At two losses, the best season remaining for the Washington football team is ten wins. But ten wins is still within the grasp
It’s a twelve game season, so simple math dictates the two-loss Washington Football team can still win ten games. But to do so, the team needs to find three things within itself: the honesty to admit that this team is vulnerable, the courage to get back up and compete in spite of that fact, and the resolve to over weaknesses in the remaining two games of this season.
To be honest, the Huskies have not beaten the better teams of the Pac-12. Arizona State University is 4-3 in the conference, and Stanford is 6-2 in the same conference. Washington now faces the Utah Utes who is 2-5 in the conference, and cross-state rival Washington State who is in control of the Pac-12 North. In stark contrast, the Cougars defeated USC (7-1) and Stanford (6-2).
Washington must get tougher
And now, Washington State enjoys a bye week as the Washington Huskies prepare to face the Utah Utes. Those preparations must be more than simply reloadin the same old plays and going out with “try it again, fellas!”.
It was clear in both the Arizona State and Stanford games that the opponents had game planned specifically for the Washington Huskies. Arizona State used their speed on defense and a slow methodical offense to stymie the Huskies. It was so effective, that despite a superior running game, the Huskies threw the ball 30 times.
