Washington Football Announces Game With Utah Is A Sellout

Nov 9, 2023, 10:20 AM

SALT LAKE CITY – The Washington football X account announced their game with Utah this weekend is a sellout helping to set an already big stage.

This weekend is an important one in the Pac-12 with Conference Championship Game implications on the line as the No. 13 Utah Utes head to Seattle to take on the No. 5 Washington Huskies one last time.

Husky Stadium is one of the best venues in all of college football boasting a solid mix of picturesque scenery overlooking Lake Washington, along with a formidable and loud crowd of 70,083 when at capacity.

Utah Just Can’t Play Good, The Need To Play Great Against Washington

“We’ve got a big challenge this week on the road against the No. 5 team in the country,” Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said Monday. “We’ve got to be at our best. We can’t just play good. We’ve got to be great. That’s just what it’s going to take. It’s going to take another week of great preparation and focus on our player’s part.”

Utah currently sits at 7-2 (4-2 in conference) with a chance to head back to Las Vegas despite having a rash of injuries throughout the 2023 season.

Whittingham and his staff have overall done a great job managing the injuries and finding creative solutions to keep the Utes competitive while the players available to play have been marvelous at buying in and moving forward.

However, as with most things, there is often a limit to how long you can hold something together with an old shoestring and some bubble gum which is what it felt like happened against Oregon a few weeks ago.

Washington isn’t unbeatable by any means. In fact, over the past few weeks they have shown some chinks in their armor, but as Whittingham said, it will take a massive effort from Utah to pull off the upset. Certainly not impossible but will require an all-out effort top to bottom of the program.
