Washington Football: 3 Pac-12 Players Who Will Give the Huskies Fits in 2012

The Washington Huskies finished 7-6 in 2011 and 5-4 in the Pac-12. Their four divisional losses came against Stanford, USC, Oregon and Oregon State by a combined score of 177-76. 

Simply put, the Huskies defense did not stack up against the strongest offensive talent in the Pac-12 conference. 

This year, Washington hopes to right the ship on the defensive side of the football.

Newly hired defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox (former defensive coordinator of Boise State when the Broncos beat Oregon and shut out TCU in 2009) will lead a young group of players against some of the most formidable offenses in college football. 

2012 offers a renewed chance for the Huskies to reach the next level. To do so, they will have to take on BCS candidates Oregon, USC and some of the other top talents of the Pac-12.
