With the whirlwind surrounding Washington football, a bowl game may not be on the front of most Huskies' minds. After head coach Steve Sarkisian left Seattle for USC, UW announced that Boise State's Chris Peterson would fill the coaching void.
But Washington will face Sarkisian's alma mater, BYU, in this year's Kraft Fight Hunger bowl. Both teams had highs and lows during the season, and their contrasting styles will make for an interesting game.
BYU started out on a roller coaster for the first few games, looking dominant in one and awful in the next. The Cougars rattled off five wins in the middle of their schedule, but ended the same way they started, not showing much consistency.
Washington came into the year as a borderline-Top 25 squad with high hopes. The team didn't disappoint, winning four straight before losing a trio of in-conference games. The Huskies ended strong, winning four of their last five contests, and earned a third-place finish in the Pac-12 North.
BYU and UW haven't met since 2010, when Riley Nelson and Jake Heaps squeaked past the Huskies, 23-17.
