Another stellar season for Washington Football

Team runs out at 2017 Fiesta Bowl

Your support made it possible for us to achieve all this and so much more. Thank you!

Another stellar season for the 10–2 Washington Football team culminated in a trip to the Fiesta Bowl, where the Huskies played with pride and passion in a 35–28 loss to Penn State.

Vita Vea was named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, the first Husky to earn the honor since 1996.

Dante Pettis became the NCAA’s all-time leader in punt return touchdowns with nine scores. He also was the 22nd player in UW history to earn consensus All-America recognition.

It was an awesome season in the classroom, too. The team set an all-time high average GPA of 3.16, with 23 student-athletes earning a spot on the Dean’s List and 74 scoring a 3.0 GPA or above.
