2021 Husky Football: Oregon 26, Washington 16

I might have picked a better day to return to the sidelines. Having missed the last home game (I was out of town), a windy, wet day wasn’t exact the best way to reunite with Husky Football and Montlake. But at least I dressed appropriately.

The real question was whether the 4-4 would put up a fight or be swept away by the visiting Ducks…

Sadly, it went about as one might expect. Despite hanging tough early, the Huskies’ consistent lack of any sort of offense (rain or shine) meant the defense was going to wear down eventually. Final score, 26-16, Bad Guys.

Former defensive stars Sidney Jones, Benning Potoa’e, Joe Tryon, and Vita Vea probably couldn’t do much to help the Husky offense if they had suited up today.

Carson Bruener proved to be a bright spot once again, with an opening interception that sparked the crowd.
