Washington will play against former Husky coach Steve Sarkisian for the first time since his departure for USC on Thursday, Oct. 8, 2015 in Los Angeles, the Pac-12 announced Tuesday evening as part of its 2015 football schedule release.
UW will play three weekday games next year, including the season-opener at Boise State, as previously announced. The Apple Cup will return to the day after Thanksgiving.
