That means we can now look at all of UW’s 2013 football schedule — and to head off one question, word is there will be no change in the non-conference games.
Aug. 31 — vs. Boise State, Husky Stadium
Sept. 14 — vs. Illinois at Solider Field, Chicago
Sept. 21 — vs. Idaho State, Husky Stadium
Sept. 28 — vs. Arizona, Husky Stadium
Oct. 5 — at Stanford
Oct. 12 — vs. Oregon, Husky Stadium
Oct. 19 — at Arizona State
Oct. 26 — vs. Cal, Husky Stadium
Nov. 2 — Bye
Nov. 9 — vs. Colorado, Husky Stadium
Nov. 15 (Friday) — at UCLA
Nov. 23 — at Oregon State
Nov. 29 (Friday) — vs. Washington State, Husky Stadium
Dec. 7 — Pac-12 Conference football title game
As you can see, there are two Friday games this year — at UCLA and then the Apple Cup.
There are also two in-season byes with there being an extra weekend in the season this year.
UW has seven home games, five on the road. The Pac-12 portion of the schedule, though, lays out a little bit dicey with the Huskies playing at Stanford, then home to Oregon, then at Arizona State in the second, third and fourth weeks of conference play.
Later in the year comes back-to-back road games at UCLA and Oregon State.
No one said the road to the top would be easy.
UPDATE — And worth noting from when I originally posted this is that the Pac-12 title game is being moved to Saturday instead of Friday and will be on either ABC or ESPN.
The exact TV networks and kickoff times for all games will be determined later.
