15 DAYS ‘TIL CHRISTMAS
The 2019 Washington Huskies Football team ended their season on a high note when it defeated the #19 Boise State Broncos 38-7 in the 2019 Las Vegas Bowl.
To many football enthusiasts, the bowl game was referred to as the “Chris Petersen” Bowl, as the game pitted “Elite Pete” against his former team, where he had unmeasured success during his tenure there.
A few weeks before the bowl game, Petersen abruptly announced his decision to walk away from the Husky Football program and hand the reigns over to Husky defensive coordinator/defensive backs coach Jimmy Lake.
The victory allowed the Husky players to send out their beloved coach, riding off into the Nevada sunset with a satisfying and convincing win to end his coaching career. After the game, Petersen shared the podium with Lake, as a passing of the torch moment for Husky Football.
“I’ve always felt so strongly that this bowl game needs to send the seniors out the right way and catapult the program forward,” Petersen said. “Every time it seems like we’ve won a bowl game, good things have happened that next year. It’s the way you want to end it.”
