In 2016 the Washington Huskies made their way into the College football playoffs. They didn’t get out of the first round but it definitely was a year they should be proud of. A 24 – 7 loss to Alabama was how it ended but it started with 9 straight wins in which 31 points was the lowest they scored (70 was the highest followed by 66 and 59).
QB Jake Browning threw 43 TDs and for nearly 3,500 yards if he continues with his development like the Huskies anticipate he will they will have a legitimate shot at a repeat playoff appearance.
