It’s a pivotal game Saturday for the Huskies, which returns home after a miserable trip in the Bay Area last week that included losses at California and Stanford.

Washington (11-3, 0-2) hopes to halt a three-game losing streak today during its cross-state showdown against rival Washington State (7-7, 1-1) 12 p.m. at Alaska Airlines Arena.
