Huskies Love ‘em Hate ‘em Style
So much to like about this game. Just a great all-around performance by the Washington Huskies.

The Washington Huskies (6-4) go back on the road to finish out the 2012 season, and they travel to Boulder, Colo. to face a beleaguered Buffaloes team giving up over 50 points a game their last seven games.
