— College GameDay (@CollegeGameDay) October 6, 2013
Huskies fans should find this news delightful -- Chris Fowler, Lee Corso and company will be hosting the immensely popular pre-game show College Gameday from the University of Washington this weekend, just before the 4-1 Huskies face off against 5-0 Oregon.
This matchup has tremendous implications for the Pac-12 race, but contains an additional compelling element as well -- these two teams boast a very underrated rivalry that goes back to 1900, which Washington leads 58-42-5.
College GameDay has never visited Washington, and now would be as good a time as any -- Husky Stadium underwent a $280 million renovation last offseason.
