A preview of UW’s 2014 schedule

The Pac-12 has yet to release the conference schedule for the 2014 football season; it released the conference schedule on Jan. 10 last year, so hopefully we’ll hear something official in the next week.

I mentioned this in our live chat on Friday, but it’s worth noting again that, according to a source, Washington has been promised that it won’t face Stanford and Oregon in back-to-back weeks in 2014, as was the case for UW in 2012 and 2013. The Huskies went 1-3 in those four weeks.

Here’s a brief look at what we know for UW’s 13-game regular-season schedule in 2014. The Pac-12 matchups should be the same as 2013, with home-road games flipping.

Nonconference schedule:
Aug. 30: at Hawaii
Sept. 6: vs. Eastern Washington
Sept. 13: vs. Illinois
Sept. 20: vs. Georgia State

UW’s Pac-12 matchups (listed in alphabetical order; dates to be announced):
at Arizona
Arizona State
at California
at Colorado
at Oregon
vs. Oregon State
vs. Stanford
vs. UCLA
at Washington State

The nonconference schedule certainly looks favorable for Chris Petersen‘s debut season with the Huskies, and one wonders if not having Stanford-Oregon back to back will help UW avoid that dreaded three-game losing skid that has been a recurring issue since 2004. And the fact that the Huskies have five conference road games seems a little less daunting — on paper, anyway — because two of those will be against the worst teams in the Pac-12 in 2013, Cal and Colorado (though I would expect  both to be improved next season).

Any bold predictions from you all on 2014?
