The Washington Huskies have re-established themselves as one of the powerhouse programs on the West Coast. A 10-win season in 2017, a New Year’s Six bowl appearance and a strong recruiting class means that Chris Petersen and Co. have the makings of another great season in 2018.
Washington currently has the highest odds of any Pac-12 team to make the College Football Playoff, and if it can do so, it would join an elite group of college football blue bloods to make the playoff multiple times — a list that includes Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma and Ohio State.
Spring camp began on March 28 and will culminate with the annual spring game on April 21. With a strong core returning, the Huskies should be in the mix for the Pac-12 title once again.

Washington spring game preview
The Washington Huskies return the majority of their starters from last season, most notably senior quarterback Jake Browning and senior running back Myles Gaskin. They will make for one of the most experienced offensive duos in the Pac-12, if not the country, and their participation in spring ball is more about maintenance than improvement.
Where the Huskies are focusing the most on offense this spring is at wide receiver, where the graduation of Dante Pettis and Will Dissly means plenty of targets are available. The spring game can serve as an early audition for Washington’s many young and promising receivers.
While Browning has continued to get first-team reps, he’s also making way for Washington’s two freshman passers, early enrollees Jacob Sirmon and Colson Yankoff, to learn the system. Expect them to be heavily featured in the spring game.
The Huskies defense isn’t as experienced as the offense, with defensive tackle Vita Vea and a good chunk of the linebacker corps moving on. The secondary returns intact, however, and that group will get to show its stuff against Washington’s young QBs.
