2016 Husky Football: Washington 44, Stanford 6

The fifth game of Washington’s season officially marked the start of my personal college football year.  I’ve been traveling so much this year that I had to sacrifice the first three Husky home games in order to complete my final guided trips of the year.  I suppose I picked a nice game (on paper) to kick things off for 2016.  This was the first Top-10 matchup at Husky Stadium since 1997, when the Dawgs faced Nebraska.

That was a game I attended and would gladly forget.  This one turned out a bit differently.  The Huskies dominated the Cardinal on both sides of the ball.  It was Washington’s largest margin of victory over a top ten team in program history.

Highlights from the game are below.  A few extras may be found in the photo archive.
