Washington Huskies Season Prediction, What Will Happen
There’s a chance this all comes together in a big hurry and Washington becomes the team we all thought we were getting in 2021.
The additions to the defensive front seven – along with the return of some key parts from injury – should make this group nasty. The offense is a different story with some questions about whether or not the parts are there to do what the coaching staff might like, but as long as the O line is better for the ground game, it should all be okay.
Also helping the cause is a schedule with four home games to start the season and no USC or Utah to deal with.
Set The Washington Huskies Regular Season Win Total At … 7.5
This might be the toughest team in the Pac-12 to call.
The schedule is there to come up with a monster season if both sides of the line can do what they’re supposed to, but will it work, or does the new coaching staff need a season to get up and rolling?
Michigan State, at UCLA, at Oregon. Win one of those, and everything else should be okay. Win two, and it’ll be a run season.
Even if the team is just okay, beating Kent State, Portland State, Stanford, Arizona, Oregon State, and Colorado at home is a must – that’s a base of at least five wins out of those six games.
Road dates at Arizona State, Cal, and Washington State aren’t out of reach.
It’ll be a shocker if this isn’t a winning season, but it won’t be a total stunner if Washington comes up with at least eight wins, maybe even nine.
