4 DAYS ‘TIL CHRISTMAS
The number 4 signifies the seeding that the 2016 Washington Huskies Football Team received with their berth into the College Football Playoff.
After a magical season for the Huskies, they earned a spot into the College Football Playoff as the #4 seed and faced #1 Alabama in the semifinal.
Even though the Huskies would lose that game 24-7, the remarkable feat was a turning point in program history. It was the first time in school history that the Huskies made the College Football Playoff since its inception.
