Six Pac-12 teams have been announced to earn bowl games to finish the season.
The Washington football program is not one of them. This doesn’t come as a surprise, but what does is that Washington remained eligible for a bowl game in the last few games of the season despite a horrendous year.
If this was any other year under more competent leadership, the Washington Huskies would have easily blown out several of their opponents.
While the Huskies will have to watch the bowl games unfold from home, they have a lot to look forward to as we spiral towards the 2022-2023 college football season.
Next season will mark a fresh start for the Huskies as the Washington football program feels rejuvenated following the hiring of new head coach Kalen DeBoer.
Washington football will watch as the Pac-12 goes bowling
The Oregon Ducks were expected to compete for a College Football Playoff spot, but instead, their season was quickly shut down following their loss to Utah in the Pac-12 Conference Championship. It certainly marked the end of an era as Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal left for a better deal at the University of Miami.
What does this mean for Washington? Well, the Huskies and Ducks are now in the same boat when it comes to starting over under new leadership. This should mark some optimism for Husky fans as the program looks to bounce back for the number on spot in the Pac-12 North next season.
Here are is the schedule for the slated Pac-12 bowl games:
- Sat., Dec. 18 – LA Bowl – Oregon State vs. Utah State
- Tues., Dec. 28 – Holiday Bowl – UCLA vs. North Carolina State
- Wed., Dec. 29 – Alamo Bowl – Oregon vs. Oklahoma
- Thurs., Dec. 30 – Las Vegas Bowl – Arizona State vs. Wisconsin
