Washington's stunning win over Nebraska in last season's Holiday Bowl did several positive things.
It gave senior quarterback Jake Locker a chance to depart as a winner.
It gave Washington a 7-6 record—its first winning season since 2002. The victory also served as a feather in the cap of second-year coach Steve Sarkisian, and catapulted his program into the offseason with a sense of accomplishment and momentum.
But some major unfinished business remains with the Oregon Ducks. In a series where the Huskies dominated for a century, they've lost seven in a row to the Ducks, with every game being an annihilation (Oregon has outscored UW 305-120 during that stretch of time).
Sarkisian is 0-2 against the Ducks, including last year's 53-16 massacre in Eugene.
Is Sarkisian ready to end Washington's woes by defeating the Ducks Nov. 5 in Husky Stadium?
Let's review the last seven years.
