In the coming weeks, the Pac-12 and its television partners may change a small number of games across the conference from Saturday dates to Thursday or Friday, according to a conference press release.
The highlights of UW head coach Kalen DeBoer’s first slate in Seattle include a non-conference test against Michigan State — which is currently 10-2 and ranked No. 10 in the country — inside Husky Stadium on Sept. 17, followed by a home Pac-12 opener against Stanford the following week. The Huskies then embark on arguably their most challenging back-to-back stretch of the season, with road games at UCLA and Arizona State (both of whom beat UW inside Husky Stadium this fall).
UW’s bye week on Oct. 29 comes at arguably an opportune time, preceding a home test against Oregon State (Nov. 5) and a road rivalry game at Oregon (Nov. 12). The Huskies close the regular season with their first Saturday Apple Cup since 2017.
