Huskies fill out 2013 schedule with Idaho State

UW has announced today that it will host Idaho State of the Big Sky Conference on Sept. 21, 2013 to fill out its 2013 football schedule.

UW had previously scheduled Boise State to open the new Husky Stadium on Sept. 7, 2013 and will also play at Illinois on Sept. 14 in its other non-conference games of that season. UW will also play nine Pac-12 games in 2013 with the conference setting the order of that schedule later (UW will miss USC and Colorado in 2013 but will play the other nine, including five at home).

UW now has its non-conference schedules set through 2015 with all pretty much fitting the classic A-B-C mode, which may not please all fans but is becoming the norm (especially in the Pac-12 with the conference still playing nine conference games each season).

Here are UW’s non-conference foes through 2015:

2013
Sept. 7 Boise State
Sept. 14 at Illinois
Sept. 21 Idaho State
2014
Aug. 30 at Hawaii
Sept. 6 Eastern Washington
Sept. 13 Illinois
2015
Sept. 5 Sacramento State
Sept. 12 Hawaii
Sept. 19 at Boise State

UW also has the option to schedule another game in 2014 since it is playing at Hawaii that year (teams that play at Hawaii can schedule a 13th game). UW has yet to do so and there’s a chance it wouldn’t, but school officials say it is likely that the Huskies will schedule another game for that season.

UW has also previously announced that it will play at Wisconsin in 2017 and then host the Badgers in 2018. Nevada is also on the schedule for a home game in 2018.

Washington had for years been one of the last remaining holdouts not to play an FCS team since such divisions were created in 1978, But the Huskies hosted Eastern Washington last year as their first FCS foe and will host Portland State this year, as well.

Idaho State is rebuilding under second-year coach Mike Kramer (also a former head coach at Eastern Washington and Montana State) going 2-9 last year and 1-7 overall, which included a 64-21 loss at Washington State.

ISU’s roster last year included a pair of former Huskies in Anthony Boyles and Kimo Makaula.
