2017 Husky Football: Washington 44, UCLA 23

A day game!  I completely forgot the usual routine for a “normal” kickoff, but somehow managed to make it to the stadium in time.

The Huskies had two weeks to stew over their loss to ASU in the desert, and it felt like today’s game against UCLA would go a long way in setting the tone for the rest of the season.  Would the Huskies bounce back against a mediocre Bruin squad, or would it be a second straight game of stagnant offense against a previously-struggling defense?

The Dawgs were up to the task.  On a beautiful autumn day in Seattle, they pounded the rock and dominated UCLA in a 44-23 victory.  A selection of game photos are below.  See a few extra images in the full game day gallery.
