8th Ranked Washington Huskies Travels to Rutgers

Washington Huskies Football

Washington Huskies Have High Expectations

High Point Solutions Stadium has a Week 1 contest the fans should enjoy. Friday night the Washington Huskies and the Rutgers Scarlet Knights play their season openers. The game will be broadcast nationally on FOX Sports 1, with a kick-off set for just after 8 pm EST.

Oddsmakers opened the Huskies as -31.5-point favorites versus the Scarlet Knights, while the game’s total opened at 52. The line is now Washington at -27 and the total is 53.

The Huskies are starting their fourth season under former Boise State coach, Chris Peterson. Expectations are high for a program he has rebuilt to its former glory, and perhaps surpassed. Washington reached the College Football Playoff last year, and finished the season 12-2. The Huskies are now in a situation where they don’t rebuild, they just reload.

Washington senior All-Pac-12 linebacker Azeem Victor will miss the game due to a one-game suspension for a violation of team rules.

The Huskies will be counting on junior quarterback Jake Browning. He looks to build on a season in which he tied the Pac-12 record of 43 touchdown passes. Browning helped the Huskies roll up a school-record 585 points. The QB underwent offseason surgery on his passing shoulder but has fully recovered.

Rutgers Has Talent to Improve From 2016

Rutgers is looking to improve on a 2-10 season from a year ago. They started the season promising, going 2-1, but lost their last nine game of the season.

They are starting a fifth-year Senior, Kyle Bolin, who is a transfer in from Louisville. Bolin will be making his seventh career start. He has passed for 2,104 yards in 17 career games.

Senior running backs, Robert Martin and Gus Edwards will share the ball-carrying duties. Martin has 1,822 career rushing yards and Edwards is a transfer from Miami who racked up 977 yards last year.

Rutgers couldn’t stop Browning last season. H passed for 287 yards and three touchdowns in a 48-13 victory. It was the first meeting between the schools.
