2021 Husky Football: Washington 31, Cal 24

I came in short-handed again, with my 600mm in for repairs. A good test for the shorter lenses (the 100-500 only opens up to f/7.1) and mirrorless bodies, given the late kickoff. On the plus side, it was a gorgeous day. I hoped I could stay the whole game this week (another week removed from Africa, it was more likely I’d last, though the late start would push my limits).

It felt like a must win for Washington. They could erase their non-conference woes and build some momentum in the conference slate with a victory. A loss might end the season by Game 4.

Good news, Dawg fans!
