Washington Huskies take on Eastern Washington in season opener
The Washington Huskies officially start life without Jake Locker tomorrow when they take on the defending FCS National Champions Eastern Washington Eagles. The Huskies are looking to go 1-0 for the first time in the Steve Sarkisian era. The Huskies for the first time in school history will be playing a non Div-1 opponent this Saturday at Husky Stadium. The Huskies are playing the #1 ranked team in the FCS and for the past couple of years Eastern Washington could make claim they were the second best team in the state. The Huskies will begin the Keith Price era hoping to go 1-0 for the first time since 2007 when the Huskies won in Jake Locker's first career game with the Huskies. The Huskies won't be taking the Eagles lightly as they feature plenty of weapons that could present problems for the Huskies secondary.
