The Huskies are led by sixth-year head coach Chris Petersen and play their home games at Husky Stadium in Seattle. The team competes as a member of the North Division in the Pac-12 Conference.

Preseason[edit]

Coaching changes[edit]

Matt Lubick, who served as wide receivers coach and co-offensive coordinator in the previous two seasons, resigned in January 2019. He indicated he was leaving the coaching profession entirely.[1] On January 17, 2019, Washington announced it had hired Junior Adams to replace Lubick as wide receivers coach.[2]

Recruiting[edit]

Washington's 2019 recruiting class consisted of 23 recruits. The class was ranked as the 16th best in the country and the second best in the Pac-12 Conference behind Oregon according to the 247Sports.com Composite.[3]

Pac-12 media day[edit]

Pac-12 media poll[edit]

In the Pac-12 preseason media poll, Washington was predicted to finish in second place in the North Division, receiving one fewer vote than Oregon. The Huskies finished with the third-most votes to win the Pac-12 Championship Game.[4]

Schedule[edit]

Washington's 2019 schedule will begin with a home non-conference game against Eastern Washington of the Big Sky Conference. Washington's two other non-conference games will be against Hawaii of the Mountain West Conference at home, and a road game against BYU, a football independent. In Pac-12 Conference play, the Huskies will play the other members of the North Division and draws Arizona, Colorado, USC, and Utah from the South Division.
