How about this: The Huskies will have back-to-back afternoon kickoffs this month.

Washington’s return to Husky Stadium for an Oct. 20 game against No. 19 Colorado has been selected for a 12:30 p.m. kickoff, it was announced Monday.

The game is scheduled to air on Fox.

The No. 7 Huskies (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12) travel to No. 17 Oregon this Saturday for a 12:30 p.m. kickoff (ABC/ESPN2) at Autzen Stadium. That will mark the Huskies’ second straight week on the road.

The Huskies’ return to Seattle for the Colorado game could be an attractive matchup for ESPN’s “College GameDay.” The only other matchup that weekend featuring two ranked teams, as of now, is NC State at Clemson.

“GameDay” has been to Seattle twice, in 2013 (vs. Oregon) and 2016 (vs. USC).
