Washington Huskies are in the Playoffs.
I was wrong. I just took a look and the rankings are out and the University of Washington Huskies are #4 and will play #1 Alabama in the Peach Bowl on New Years Eve.
(I'm sorry, the "Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl")
Which is going to be a very tough game. Hope Washington quarterback Jake Browning doesn't have another off night.
Apparently the time of and which network will broadcast the Peach Bowl aren't set, yet. I suspect it'll be on one of the four major networks (ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox).
What a difference a year makes. Last year the Huskies had to win the Apple Cup to win their sixth game and be bowl eligible. They did and then played in the "Heart of Dallas" Bowl in front of a half-empty stadium.
This year they are back in national prominence, they are going to the playoffs, and they are the Pac-12 Champions.
Let's just hope Chris Petersen can keep it up over the years and turn the Dawgs into a dynasty again like they were under coach Don James.
UPDATE: The Peach Bowl will be at 12:00 PM PST (3:00 PM EST) on ESPN.
