2019 Husky Football: Washington 28, USC 14

I could get used to these 12:30 starts! Another reminder of the glory days of Husky Football: lots of wins, five star commitments… day games.

Two traditional Pac-12 powers squared off today, with USC in town. Despite the downward trajectory of the Trojans (and injuries to a number of key players), I figured there was a good chance that we’d get a competitive game. The competition started early out on the water, where Wendy’s set up their floating restaurant (complete with drive thru), while the Seattle Boat Company made the rounds handing out free Dick’s burgers to sailgaters.


Wendy’s had a floating restaurant on Lake Washington, complete with “drive through” for sailgaters.
