The Washington-Washington State series dates back to 1900, when the teams played to a 5-5 tie in Seattle. Washington holds a commanding 74-32-6 edge in the 112-game series, including a 42-15 record in Apple Cup games (1962-present).
Washington and Colorado have squared off 18 times in their history and the Huskies hold the edge with 12 wins, six losses, and one tie. Washington had won nine straight games vs. the Buffaloes, a streak that dated back 20 years, before losing the most recent meeting, in 2019. UW is 7-1 vs. Colorado since the Pac-10 Conference expanded to become the Pac-12, including six wins in the regular season and one in the 2016 Pac-12 Championship game.
In a rare set of circumstances, UW will mark the third-straight team ASU will play without the head coach that started the season at the helm as Washington’s Jimmy Lake has been suspended following an incident in last weekend’s game against the Ducks. ASU is coming off games against Washington State (Nick Rolovich let go due to COVID-19 state legislation) and USC (Clay Helton let go after loss to Stanford in Week 2).
In games played in Seattle, the Huskies are 32-22-4 against their cross-border rivals, while in games played in Eugene, the Ducks enjoy an 18-13 edge all-time (Oregon's home games vs. the UW were played in Portland for many years). The Ducks have had the edge of late, winning 19 of the last 25 against the Dawgs.
Stanford is one of eight teams this season with multiple wins over Top 25 teams, and one of only five (joined by Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia and Iowa) with multiple wins over Top-15 teams so far this season.
