What to Know
The Washington Huskies and the Kent State Golden Flashes will face off at 10:30 p.m. ET Sept. 3 at Alaska Airlines Field at Husky Stadium to kick off their 2022 seasons. Last year was nothing to brag about for Washington (4-8), so the team is looking forward to a new start. Kent State struggled last season, too, ending up 7-7.
A couple last-season stats to keep an eye on: Few squads threw more interceptions than the Huskies, who were picked off 16 times. Kent State’s defense has more to brag about, as they they snagged 16 interceptions last year, the eighth most in the nation. If Washington hasn’t learned to take better care of the ball in the offseason, they’re gonna have a bad time.
Washington is the favorite in this one, with an expected 21.5-point margin of victory. But these early season matchups can go either way as both teams get back into playing shape.
