The Washington Huskies finished off their season in impressive fashion, blowing out Washington State 41-14 in the Apple Cup. The Huskies went 10-2 and were 14 points away from a perfect season, which has to hurt a little bit. The Huskies missed out on winning the Pac-12 North title due to their loss to Stanford, missing out on the chance to defend their Pac-12 title.
While this season feels like a bit of a missed opportunity for the Huskies, the team is still one of the best in the country and could find itself playing in a New Year’s Six bowl game if some results break their way this weekend.
Both ESPN’s David M. Hale and ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura has Washington facing Oklahoma State in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 28. That matchup would pit one of the nation’s best offenses versus one of the nation’s best defenses. CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm has UW facing the Pokes in the Alamo Bowl, as well.
Sports Illustrated’s Eric Single has the Huskies traveling to San Diego to face Northwestern in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 28. Washington’s last bowl game win came a 44-31 victory in the Heart of Dallas bowl in 2015 against Southern Miss.
The Huskies are seemingly locked into the Alamo Bowl, according to these projections. However, it is possible for the Huskies to receive an at-large bid to a New Year’s Six bowl. But, for right now, the Washington staff is probably locked in on Oklahoma State.
