Washington Football: 3 bold predictions for Huskies vs Michigan

Following an embarrassing loss to Montana last week, can Washington football rebound under the lights at the Big House? Here are three bold predictions. 

If you’re a Washington football fan and you’re still trying to wake up from last week’s nightmare, it’s understandable.

But unfortunately, the loss to Montana was a reality. It happened and it definitely removed some of the luster from the Huskies prime-time showdown with Michigan football Saturday night.

Yet, it’s a great opportunity for the Huskies too. What better way to silence the doubters than going on the road and beating Jim Harbaugh and company?

It won’t erase the loss last week, but it could certainly help make up for it. At this point, Washington’s focus should be winning the Pac-12. It’s not a playoff team after last week but its brand is in trouble after that loss (thinking of recruiting).

Five-star Josh Conerly, a top target and a five-star prospect from Seattle, is visiting Michigan football this week and a loss to the Wolverines isn’t going to help the cause.

Washington football wants to be a big-time program and it is. The Huskies have won conference championships, reached the playoff, and sent plenty of guys to the NFL.

But another loss isn’t going to look good, especially if the Huskies don’t show up again and lose handily to the Wolverines.

Predictions of that are folly though. This Washington football team may not win Saturday night, but nothing will come easy for the Wolverines, and here are three bold predictions for Saturday night.
